The comment function of this site cut out whenever I said to hit the enter key. If a sentience says Press and there is nothing there, just hit enter.

The video/audio files of the game are located inside the included virtual disk file. This download's disc image is set up for DOSBox and we need to mount the image into a pretend drive. This image file is not the same as a regular .iso file. The pretend (virtual) drive is built into DOSox but we need to set it up first. Here are the commands I run to play this game. I am assuming you have a typical windows 10 PC setup and you know how to move files out of the zip file you just downloaded.
I suggest moving the uncompressed folder to c:\. I am not a DOSbox expert by any means. I just happened to make this work and saw others needed help. Anything bracketed with means to hit the button on your keyboard. Don't include " " when we are specifying locations either.
Enter these commands to the DOSBox command line when you first start it up.
mount c c:\"Wherever you stored the files on your hard drive"
IMGMOUNT E C:\"Wherever you stored the files"\cd\SIMCITY_REV.img -t iso
Now visit your simcity folder using some basic DOS commands. c:, cd, and dir. Time to get DOS savy. Once in the simcitye folder you should see scsetup.exe. The commands should look like. c:
Now we need to change the path for video and path for audio to match the location in the pretend (virtual) CD drive. Type C and change the path to "E:\simcity\video" and make D match. They are the same place. Press to accept your current config. Press to save the changes.
Now we should be back at the command prompt.
Type "play " and the game should start. The video may take a few seconds to load.
The default cpi speed is 3000. Press ctrl + F12 several times to speed it up to around 20k. This makes the game playable.

So I've tried running the SCSETUP and the SCCD files in DosBox with no luck. Could I have some help please?

COOLDUDE2019- You have to use DosBox, or some other similar DOS emulation program. DosBox is highly rated.
