For the Steam game, the exe is in your steam library. On my computer, that would be E:\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\SimCity 4 Deluxe\Apps\Simcity4.exe. Your path may differ, but should be the same from "SteamApps" on.
If you cannot use the launcher, just add the startup options to the link in your online Steam library.
Just checked in the SteamApps and common and SimCity 4 Deluxe folders and cannot find the .exe file.
I have the application in it but not the .exe. I tried routing the SC4 to that folder and it still could not find the .exe.
You didn't mention the "Apps" folder within the "Simcity 4 Deluxe" folder (see my full path in the last post). There are four files in there, one of them the exe. You have "show extensions" switched on in your Windows, I hope. Also, what do you mean with a distinction between the application and the exe?
Ok so I was being an idiot before. The .exe is right there. I think I was doubting it was there because I have installed SC4Launcher straight to that directory and it still does not launch.
Once installed, a new folder appears inside my Apps folder within SimCity 4 Deluxe. The new folder, named SimCity 4, contains the SC4Launcher app and whatnot. So I know I am installing it correctly.
Am I doing something wrong or does my computer just really not want to run this app?
