I am having problems with the Building Architect program found in Simcity 3000 Unlimited. It worked just find on my old computer but I have WindowsXP now so everytime I try to open the program; the Maxis logo pops up for a few seconds, the cd rom begins spinning, and then NOTHING!! AAAAHHH!!! It just reverts right back to the desktop with no error message. I have already tried everything I can think of to fix this problem with no results! I have updated my drivers, I have ran the program compatiblity wizard, I have been through every "trouble shooting" guide I could find including Directx (which by the way is also the latest version.) I have used "Ctrl,Alt,Del" to shut down extra background Apps, I have adjusted my monitor refresh rate, I have reduced my graphics acceleration, I have un-installed and re-installed Simcity 3000 Unlimited, I have done so many things to try to fix this that I can't remember it all!!

I checked the application errors report in "Dr. Watson for Windows" I have copied and pasted it here:

Application exception occurred:
