Success!!! Go to Control Panel. Click on Display. Click on Settings. Set color quality at 16 bits and screen resolution to 800x600. My Simcity 3000 runs like a dream now. (My resolution was set higher and on 32 bit.)

I've got the same problem, SC3k won't start. I use Windows XP SP2, and i've tried to install it on two computers, but the problem is the same.
But, when I open IP.exe, an errormessage that's says: ERROR: Can't open registry. Failed while trying to open HKEY_DYN_DATA
Does anyone have a solution to this?

I have a laptop with WinXP Home, plenty RAM and a 32Mb Intel onboard display driver.
So I installed the patch and then set the compability on the SC3 shortcut-icon to Win 2000 and after a couple of tries I finally got the game to start.
Patch here: http://simcity3000un...bat/index.phtml
The first time I run the game it crashed, but now it just generates a couple of error-messages on startup, and then the game runs smooth :-)
(And I have just built my first SC3-city in years..)

I have had different errors arise which hopefully I will document:
I put the disc in, the autorun works, I click install SC3000 and the installer loads up, 99... 100% - Excellent! Up loads an installer called Kyro, click next and... bang! the error message says the installer file C:\cvr3w2k\drivers\kyro.inf could not be found? I have no other options from there as it shuts itself down!
Can anyone suggest a way around this? Or alternatively are there any after market installers I can download to take over?
I dont know where to go next so any help would be most appreciated.

It did run on my comp when I was using W98 andafter changing to XP now it won't even load. The file I previously mentioned I can locate on my comp and open in 'read me' text fashion and it says last accessed in 2001 but the setup doesn't recognise it's existence.
The best case scenario in my eyes would be for me to remove any files related to the games previous existence, but they aren't available either.
As I previously said I dont know where to go next! Really just shooting at ducks!

However, I think that you will have to install the game and run it in compatibility mode using Windows 98

The message reads:
No device information could be read from the following INF File. This file will be ignored: C:\Cvr3w2k\drivers\kyro.inf
Now, the file exists and it is a text document, however I have no idea what the code says and where it could be corrupted!
Do you think I could delete this software and not experience any problems? My thinkig is that surely that would allow the standard setup program to take over?
Anyone have any other ideas?

Right, ok I got rid of Kyro, it appears that it came onto my comp along with a patch for another game.
This is the stage that I am now at. As above I have set the game up to install and run in Windows 98 mode but thats as far as it goes. It doesn't install on my desktop nor does it run.
Can anyone help from here?
