NAM wouldn't install

3 posts in this topic Last Reply

Hello, I recently started to play Simcity 4 Deluxe again, then I tried to install NAM. The installer launches, but when it comes to section where I have to choose what I want to install, the installer freezes, and the computer says the only way is to close the installer. Now how I am able to install NAM, when the launcher doesn't works? Any solution? Maybe someone could share a .dat file of NAM? I don't know just any way is fine.

Could you please tell us:


  • The version of your game. Found by hovering your mouse over your SimCity 4.exe file in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxis\SimCity 4 Deluxe\Apps"
  • The version of the NAM - v31.2 is the latest.
  • Your operating system
  • Where you ran the installer from (location)
  • Any open programs?
  • Does the problem reoccur after trying again?


Due to the NAM's complexity, it's not possible to just copy and paste DAT files like some mods. After all, the NAM isn't just a single file. There are many different files and possible combinations, all used to add or remove certain features. That's mainly the reason why an installer is used, as it greatly simplifies this process.
