Having problems with your Electronic Arts Sim City 4: Deluxe Edition for Windows ?

Probably my Computer Ignorence. I just purchase Sim City 4. I have to load it everytime I want to play it. Isn't there a way to get a shortcut. I have a Gateway, running Vista 64.

Answers :

Usually when you first install it, it gives you the option to create a shortcut option to be made on your computer desktop but that's the shortest way to go into playing the game-it still has to load regardless just due to the fact that certain games (such as the Sims) require a great deal more memory and RAM (Random Access Memory) than other games.
