Hey all,

I preordered Simcity and have been trying to install it since it launched a couple of days ago. Sadly I keep having the same problem.

Whenever i try to install the game it keeps failing to install VC++2008. I feel like I tried every solution: I reinstalled origin, I reinstalled windows, I reset my PC to facory default settings, I uninstalled newer versions of VC++, tried to manually install VC++2008, etc, etc.

I have a fairly decent gaming PC and can run games like Far Cry 3 and Skyrim with the highest graphical settings and I easily meet the system requirements for Simcity:

PC specs (some of it is in Dutch, but I think you can figure out what it means) Cooler Master K-350 Advanced 3.0 Red, 600 Watt Cooler Master voeding, AMD Zambezi FX-6100, SixCore, Standaard koeling, Asus M5A78L-M/USB3, 7.1 Geluidskaart, 8GB DDR3 Werkgeheugen Corsair, 1000 GB SataIII Hardeschijf, DVD Brander Optical Disc Drive, AMD Radeon 7770 1GB, 51-in-1 Cardreader, 1Gbit netwerkkaart, Windows 8 (x86) Pro


Does anyone else have this problem? Or can anyone think of a way to fix this? I already asked for help on help.ea.com and answers.ea.com, but have not received an answer from them.

This is what the installog looks like:
