The sims complete collection wont uninstall and it wont let me remove from my add or remove programs


I had the same problem. I checked every file and theres a simseraser. that didn't work cause ur supposed to used it to get more free space to save more games.so that doesn't work for anything, and i think u dont have any more space. so u installed it wrong. theres also an uninstall aplicaton in the" support" file. that didn't work either.. i think u should wait for a month or so and it will uninstal itself for lack of using. then u can install all over again

Why cant i save my sims complete collection i have windows vista and it says an error has occured i dont get it wat should i do


I had this problem too. In vista you have to choose to run the sims in xp or an earlier mode. I ran mine in windows ME mode. you also have to slelect "run this program as administrator". then you should be able to save your game.

The sims complete collection won't save with vista


One of the biggest problems is that you are running it on Vista. The Sims Complete Collection was not developed with Vista in mind so there will be compatibility issues. One thing that you can try to fix this is right click it and click run as administrator. The reason why i say to do this is because one of the big things that vista tried to stop was viruses destroying your operating system by editing files without permission. By running as administrator, you override these rules. Programs cannot start themselves as administrator. This should clear any problems right up.

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!

Sims complete collection won't run on my windows vista


Hello.. The Sims collection does have some compatability issues with vista but EA has worked on it and actually it should run fine.May be any running process is conflicting with the game or you may have to update your Display drivers.
Also try using the compatability mode.Just right click on the game *.exe and select properties.then select the compatability tab and check the box "run in compatability with Win Xp[sp2]".
In adition you can check for any available patches here. http://www.electronicarts.in/search/?search=sims
