Windows 7: SIMS 1 issues?

I tried to change the permission to that folder and it will not let me and though I am an (and the only) admin account it tells me who can access what but will not allow me to change that... Is there some possibility I can make another account to be *the* admin from my account? I am so confused, I will get a screencap of the permission screen...

so who are all those accounts (besides SYSTEM... I get that haha) if I only have one account and that is my Admin account, with one other Guest Account who only is a standard user?

If I remember correctly (and I probably don't, at least not all the details), I think I read somewhere that Sims1 is just not compatible with Windows 7. Perhaps even Vista.

That may be true but I don't see why *none* of my games will load...even some much newer games...? :/

I just realized something it has to change file properties in order for it to work right. It can't do this while the files are on a disk.
Try copying the contents of the disk into a folder on your harddrive and then setting it for compatibility and run as admin.

I have a final possibility that will more than likely allow you to install and run the game.
But it takes some doing.
