    what operating system are you using ?
    Did you make sure your computer meets the specs to run the game ?
    Just because it installs doesn't mean that the game will play.
    It use to be games would check the computer first to see if it met the specs or not but nowadays they mostly don't and you're screwed once you open the game box.

    So the demo worked fine but now the disc won't work?
    You might try installing any patches and see if it helps.
    Did you make sure you completely uninstalled the demo before you installed the full version?
    There might be something left over that's corrupting the game .
    I've not played the game but if I can't help you I would suggest you try out www.simtropolis.com as it caters more to Sim City and other city sim games.

    Oh ok it might be something to do with the anti-piracy software stopping you then.
    Are you using any cd or dvd burning software that might be causing this.
    If you are uninstall it (burning software) and try again.

    If it were me I would completely uninstall it again and clean out the registry to remove any leftover bits that might be hidden in there.
    Make sure there are no files or folders left over in the My Documents or program files part as sometimes uninstalling doesn't remove everything.
    There might be some traces of the demo in there that causes this.
    Be forewarned though editting the registry can cause problems.
    I would suggest you look on the wiki site and see if there is a sim city societies page and see if it tells you how to do it, if not try the ea support line and ask there.
