How do I remove (uninstall) the sims 2, sims seasons and sims teen style stuff from my computer?


Hi akach564,
I saw your post wanting to uninstall The Sims 2 and the other Expansions that you have for it, since you did not mention what version of Windows you have I will be giving several way to remove The Sims2 and it's Expansions.
Win XP:
  • Click on Start, then click on Control Panel, in Control Panel look for Add Remove Programs.
  • In Add or Remove Programs it will be Alphabetically arranged look for The Sims or Sims2 and you should see the other Expansions underneath it , on the right side of The Sims2 and its Expansions you will see a button that will say change / remove.
  • Click on Change/Remove this will prompt you if you are sure you want to uninstall this program.
  • Just click on YES since we are uninstalling the program The Sims2.
  • Do the same for the Expansions of The Sims2 to uninstall them.
If the Sims2 and its Expansions are not located anywhere in the Add or Remove Programs then you will need to manually uninstall them one by one from the location where the folders of each is located C: or which ever location / folder you installed them.
In each folder of the Sims2 / Expansions you will need to click open each folder and look for the uninstall icon and double click on it to uninstall The Sims2 to the same for the Expansions of The Sims2 for uninstalaltion.
Win Vista / Win7:
  • Click on Start, then click on Control Panel, in Control Panel look for Programs it will say uninstall programs under it click on uninstall programs this will open Programs and Features.
  • In Programs and Features it will be Alphabetically arranged look for The Sims or Sims2 and you should see the other Expansions underneath it , on the right side of The Sims2 and its Expansions you will see a button that will say change / remove.
  • Click on Change/Remove this will prompt you if you are sure you want to uninstall this program.
  • Click on YES to Uninstall the Sims2 and do the same for the Sims2 Expansions program/game.
If the Sims2 and its Expansions are not located anywhere in the Add or Remove Programs then you will need to manually uninstall them one by one from the location where the folders of each is located C: or which ever location / folder you installed them.

I hope that this will be of help Uninstalling The Sims2 and it's Expansions game from your computer.
Have a nice day,
mvincentc

Solve Installer issues


Many have been having an issue when installing the SIMS2 PETS expansion pack (EP) and Glamour Life EP.  The best way to resolve this is:
1. BACK UP your game folder first (usually: users + your folder + Documents + EA Games).  You want to back up the EA folder.
2. Download (do not install yet) the SIMS2 COMBO UPDATE patch at http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/18988
3. If you have already had the issue (which you probably did, otherwise you would not be reading this), delete your SIMS 2 folder from the HD and the EA games folder from the location mentioned above.  Yes, I know, it is painful but you saved what you needed, so stay with me.
4. Reinstall your SIMS 2 game (the base game).  Run it and make sure it works fine.  This will create a new EA Games folder where the old one was.
5. Now install the PETS expansion pack. If you want, start it to make sure it works fine.  All should be OK.
6. Now run the Combo pack. It will scan your HD to find the SIMS folder and what you need.  A window will open allowing you to select the install. Do it and install it.  If you click the arrow next to the installer options you will see there are patches for all the EP's, but they will be grayed except for the one you need.
7. Install your next expansion pack and run the combo patch installer again, now selecting the appropriate pack to patch.  Again, all others will be grayed except for the one you need.
8. Keep doing this with every expansion you install thereafter.  What the patch does is it updates each expansion pack to make sure it works by solving issues that came up after the release and will update everything up to December 2007.
9. After you are done, copy your original saved EA Games folder back into the location you had it.  You will need to hit 'replace' as SIMS will have installed a new EA Games folder in its place.  It is OK, this is all your games saved data.
10. Start SIMS2 and go look for your saved game!

Hi. Is Sims 2 installed in your pc? Before you can install any expansion pack you have to install first the sims 2. Try installing first your sims 2 software then install all the expansion pack that you have. Hope this helps.

I cant play the sims2 H&M fashion stuff because i have to download the sims 2 what do i do i went to all the dowloads and they wont work


Hi. You need to install first the sims 2 before you can install any expansion pack. Since sims 2 H&M is an expansion it really needs to have the sims 2 first before it can actually work. Hope this helps.

Hi my sims 2 night life isnt working i put in the disc 1 and it says please install the sims2 installer before this producte


You will have to uninstall and reinstall SIMS 2. It thinks you are either running on a cracked version of the original game or do not have the original installed; so it won't allow you to install the expansion.

I ininstalled sims2/double deluxe because I didn't want it because I got the sims2pets. but I found out I have to have the sims 2 double deluxe to install the sims2pets. When I enter the installation code...


Make sure there is no sims 2 content on your hard drive. if there are any EA folders on your comouter either in program files or in "my documents" delete them. Then try installing Double Deluxe again. Then you can install pets.
Pets is an expansion pack for the Sims 2 base game. Other expansion packs are University, Seasons, Free Time, Bon Voyage.Open for buisiness and Apartment Life...If you plan to get other expansion packs you should install them in order of their release to avoid future problems. Nightlife expansion is included with Double Deluxe.

A simple google search for sims 2 expansion packs will show you the correct order to install and descriptions of each pack and what they add to the game. Seasons lets your sims go fishing for example. They can cook the fish they catch, and also plant gardens, and experience the changing seasons from summer to winter.

Wrong disc??how can i solve it??


Try uninstalling the orignal and expansion pack. If you have any other expansion packs uninstall them aswell. Install it all from scratch. If the problem doesnt subside, check your System Requirements, it may be that your computer doesnt support the data from Sims2.

Error message when installed Sims2 Open for business


Ha, I kept searching and I found out that it just wants the newest expansion of The Sims 2...so if you have Pets, and install Open for Business - then insert the Pets cd, and run Pets - and it should have Open for Business as well.

Another solution was to uninstall Pets (or whatever version you have) and install Open for Business, and then reinstall Pets (or whatever)...this will lose all your saved sims and houses but I'm guessing it's better than nothing.
