    1. What operating system do you have? Windows XP?

    2.  Are you installing from a CD? 

    3. When was the last time you installed a game or program on this PC?




    Thanks,


    Kaj

If the version you are installing is a pirated copy, anything could have been done to it and we will not be able to help, however if it is original try the following.
It could be the Windows Installer that is having issues, the best fix is that you download the latest version and install this first before the game. It can be found here:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=5a58b56f-60b6-4412-95b9-54d056d6f9f4&DisplayLang=en

Scroll down the page to find the Instructions and choose carefully based upon your Operating System. Download the appropriate file and install this, once that is done, reboot the computer and try to install the Sims again.

Have retry and abort up on screen Trying to complete password set up What does it mean and what can I do


Retry means your passwords either didn't match or, they didn't meet the password requirements. Abort means just that. Quit. Maybe start over with the process.

A problem with The Sims Pet Stories


When you had the game before, were you running a different version of Windows than you are using now? Are you using software now you didnt have before? Has the game ever worked properly? Head to the game company's website and see if there is a patch or an update for the game. It seems like a hardware to software issue. Reinstall the game, restart the computer (even if youre not told to do so), then look for a patch. If there is one, follow the instructions to install it, and restart after installing the patch. DO NOT TRY TO RUN THE GAME until all of this is done first.

Having installed Roxio Creator 10, I get a recurring message: "RoxMMTrayApp Module has encountered a problem and needs to close." Etc. It occurs even when I am not editing with that software. ...


ROXIO Multi Media Tray Application Module Has Encountered a problem and needs to close.

This Means ROXIO Creator 10 Try Application Encountered an error.

And since it happens while burning a disc

You should

1. Uninstall ROXIO Creator 10 , and reinstall it to make sure nothing is corupted.

2. If you still get the same problem it's time to check your intire system for errors.

This can mean you will need to take trouble shooting steps.

1. Use another burning program to see if you can burn without errors.

2. if you can burn fine with another burning program like NERO then chances are
you have an incompatability with ROXIO Creator 10 and should consult the documentation
to see if your drive is actually supported by it.

Do these things weed hopper and all will be well with you.
