Question about EA - Electronic Arts Sims: Complete Collection for Windows

2 Answers

Stuck on loading

We are running this on windows vista, and when we go into the neighbourhood the expansion packs begin to load, but they keep doing this in a loop and then the program freezes. We left it to see if it resolved itself, but it was doing this for nearly an hour until we closed it down using task manager. Any ideas?

    Tried to look for a patch or updates but the general concensus is that there isn't any

    I'm trying to find out how to stop that, too! I even tried uninstalling it but when I reinstalled, it just went right back to where I'd left it. There must have been a glitch or something at the beginning of the game when I first started it.

    Where is that stinkin' answer?

    Then it seems you dont have much of a choice.Either you change the OS for the games sake or wait patiently because there is a whole community out there with the same problem and some one will sure come up with a solution.

Problem installing Vista SP1 on Asus G2s


If you tried to install Vista on the Primary drive and formatted the primary HDD your Factory Recovery Partition , most likely has been written over, it's gone. Choose one or the other , Vista or Win 7, start from the beginning, install a clean Vista load, formatting in the installation procedure, form a Vista Installation DVD, follow instructions, boot up, do ALL the Vista Updates, it will take hours of updates, rebooting, updates, rebooting. You will get to the Service Pack's 1 and 2, in 24 hours or so. Put on a pot of coffee and be patience. If you prefer Windows 7 use the same procedure.

The sims complete collection won't


I had the same problem, when I installed the sims on my new lap top (with vista) it just kept repeating the 'loading the expansion packs' thing. I uninstalled it and re-installed it, and it solved that problem. HOWEVER, I now have a new problem, it gets stuck in transit to any place, so you may fix that problem with the uninstalling and re-installing-but I don't know what the new problem might be!

I cannot load,tales of the sword coast. It just keeps coming up 5


Anti-Virus check it and see if that works. Re-install it and see if that works.

If that doesnt work...
Try getting a new disk pack for it. there may be a corrupt file or script on one of those discs.
