    Same problem happens with Sims Pets installed, Open for Business will complain that it's running the wrong version and to put in the Sims Pets CD. When I do that then click Open for Business, it says it needs the Open for Business CD. It's an endless loop where it never works.

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.

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

Very sorry, but you can't. You HAVE to have The Sims 2. After installing that one, you can install other versions like yours. If you need other help, just search me up.

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.

Sims2 Bon Voyage Disc 1- "Backup" problem?


If it doesn't recognise it there probably is a scratch or something like that on it, or you have disk emulator softwarelike Daemon Tools running, which causes games to block. Try closing the emulator software. If you don't have any running, you could try using a crack for the game. A crack is a copy of the game launcher that does not look for the CD when it starts. GO to one of tese sites: gf.wiretarget.com www.gamecopyworld.com and download a "fixed exe" for your version of the game. It is advisable to update your game to the latest version, and then download the late version crack. To open the file the crack is in, you will need a program called 7zip. jJust google it and download it, it's free and perfectly safe. Once you have the crack, overwrite the file of the same name in your Sims folder, and the game should run properly from now. I hope this helps, Yannick.
