Is The Sims 3 compatible with Windows 8?

I love The Sims 3 so much! I have bought a lot of the expansion packs, so costed a lot to buy them...however it doesn't work so well with my windows 8. No, I do not have problems with this laptop and I have a lot of memory on it. I know for sure it works for windows 7, but my windows 7 laptop doesn't work good right now. Every time I play the Sims, works for a little bit. Then it will say, Sims 3 stopped working. I have no idea why. Does anyone have answers to this? If so, please comment! I really want to play my game, and its annoying me. Thanks

    Right click the icon. Go to properties. Go to compatibility. Tick the box that says 'Run this programme in compatibility mode for:' Choose Windows 7 from the list. Click apply and then ok.

    Then your sims 3 should be running fine.
