Did you check the system requirements? Often games designed to "work" on windows/windows95/windows98 .. don't work well if at all on windows2000/xp/vista.

The problem is most likely that you do not have a DVD reader installed in your PC. If you look on the front of you cd-rom it will say DVD if it can read DVD's. Most stores will not give you a refund for software that has already been opened. It is fairly easy and inexpensive to install a DVD reader in your PC, probably in the range of $30.00 to $60.00 depending on the brand you purchase. I would go ahead and purchase and install the DVD reader since more and more games and other software is now being put on DVD's.

I bought a new computer. When I tried to run


To be honest, there are only two options.

1. Go to the sierra online website and see if you can get a 64 bit version of the game

2. Get an entirely new OS of windows (a 32 bit version) and then try installing

Not responding?


if the game is brand new its not the game. the most likely reason this happens is because your computers graphics card is not sufficient, what is your graphics cards memory? the brand? model? if you do not know this, how old is your computer? when did you get it and when was the last time you updated your computer with new hardware?

The game was released in 1998, and was developed for Windows 95/98.

To make the game run on Windows XP, try the compatibility for the installation and after it is installed use the same steps for making the game executable file compatible.

Note: Some game ".exe" file (executable file) would let you make changes in the Compatibility option, whereas older games might not give that option at all.

You can still try to make the game compatible for installing it on the Windows Vista by following the steps below.

1. Insert the game disc in your CD-ROM drive, if the game setup or the autorun starts, exit it.

2. Open "Computer", Right Click the Cd Drive which has the game disk in it and select "Copy".

3. Go to your "Desktop" right click and then select "New" and click on "Folder" this should create a new folder on your desktop.

4. Open the New Folder and then Right Click and select "Paste".

6. After all the files are copied to the "New Folder" without any error messages then locate the file "Setup.exe" or "Setup" and right click and click on "Properties".

7. In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows 98/ Windows Me" and then click on "Apply". (You can also try "Windows 95")

8. After applying changes double click on "Setup.exe" or "Setup" to launch the installation.

You can delete all the files copied from the CD after completing the installation

After the game is successfully installed right click on the game shortcut or the game ".exe" in the root folder of the game and click and click on "Properties".

In the new window click on the "Compatibility" tab and run the program in compatibility mode for "Windows 98/ Windows Me" and then click on "Apply". (Again, you can also try "Windows 95")

The game files need to be copied to the hard drive because the files on the game disk would not let you make changes while on the disk.

There are lot of files that need to be changed in order to get full functionality and to communicate with operating system and the hardware, hence there is no guarantee that the game might run even in cases where you will successfully install an older version of the game with the above mentioned steps.

Cannot Install


It might not run on vista. Vista in incredibly picky and most games needs patches. Best bet is to go to the sims website and see if they have the patch for vista.

However, if still the issue persists, then please let me know I would be glad to help you in this issue.
