    I'm trying to install SimCity 3000 on my iMac G3 which is now running Mac OS 9.2. But I can't. The instructions say this:

    I try to run the installer but Mac OS 9 will tell me that it cannot find the application program "PC" to open it, and then gives me a list of programs. I can choose Stuffit Expander but when I do, nothing happens. I even took the RAM out of another computer to bump up my iMac to 512MB. It still didn't help.

    I don't know what's going on. Can someone help me?

    I just installed SC3000 under classic and it worked fine, never asked me to open it with another program. Are you using the Mac CD? When you open it does it look like this?...

    Um...That's the thing. It doesn't open. It just complains about not being able to find the program that created the file. I don't know about using the Mac CD.

    I am guessing that you don't have the original SC3000 but a copy. The original looks like this...

    If you do have the original CD than all I can suggest is try loading it on another Mac with system 9/classic and see if it opens okay there.
