    Have you tried this as Vista fixes often work for windows 7 due to the shared core design of the OS:-


    SOURCE: 64bit and x64 - Windows Vista Compatibility Patch for City Life Available

    Continuing to expand support for Microsoft® Windows Vista Operating System, CDV Software Entertainment USA is pleased to announce a new patch for City Life. The new patchallows the city building and management simulation to be played under both the 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista.


    Please note – this patch is only for City Life, a forthcoming patch will offer compatibility for City Life: World Edition​

    To install the patch on the 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, please follow these steps:

    1. Install City Life​
    2. Right click on the City Life shortcut and click on « Run as Administrator »​
    3. Launch the game and allow it to install the Starforce drivers, but DO NOT restart the computer when prompted​
    4. Download the following file: http://www.star-force.com/support/sfdrvup.zip
    5. Launch SFDRVUP.EXE after downloading to update your Starforce drivers​
    6. Restart your computer​
    7. Launch the game (note that it will come up with an error message)​
    8. Install the CityLife_PatchVista.exe​
    9. Launch the game.​

    - (For Windows 7) Before step 8, go to the CityLife_PatchVista.exe file, right click on this file, and click properties.
    - Go to the Compatibility tab, put a check in the box for "Run this program in compatibility mode for:" and in the drop-down menu beneath, select "Windows Vista". Click OK to close the properties window.
    - Then Install the CityLife_PatchVista.exe
    - Launch the game.
    - Game may ask to install additional libraries for protection - Click "Yes". Game will run after installing additional libraries.


    I know the last post was 2 years ago, but thought it would be helpful to anyone who is still having problems when trying to play this game with Windows 7 :)
