    Have you checked with The Sims forums and troubleshooters? The Sims and Sims 2 games seem to have troubles with business type operating systems. I would recommend checking there to see if anyone else has trouble with the sims on Windows 2000.

    Have you checked in the event viewer to see if the CDRom is throwing any errors?

    Open device manager, uninstall the dvd drive. then right click the root of the device manager and click scan for changes. Then try again. May require a reboot.

    Right click the disk drive and select autoplay? or explore and run the setup file?

    Have you tried just opening Windows Explorer and double clicking on the disc drive?

Does your laptop have a DVD drive? It is likely that the Sims Double Deluxe disk you have is a DVD ROM and not a CD ROM.
If this is not the case, try clicking My Computer and selecting the CD drive to see if the computer recognises the disk at all. Run setup.exe if it does.

Open Windows Explorer or My Computer, right click the CD/DVD drive with the Sims disc in it. For example "D:". Right click on the drive and select "Explore" or "Open". In the list of files you should have a "SETUP.EXE". Double left-click that file.

The Sims Double Deluxe Won't load when I add the downloads folder


As long as you have your download file located in Documents/Ea Games/The Sims 2/Downloads (I already had this folder when I installed the game.) you should be fine.

Your might want to try taking out your Sim Blender, and try executing again. It may be causing the game to freeze before it loads all the way. I am currently having the same problems and I am looking for a solution.

Cant install sims 2 double deluxe.


Hi there, is the disc damaged at all? if it is, but not very deep scratches, try polishing the disc/disc's, with a very soft cloth. make sure you clean the disc from centre outworse not side to side like most people do, if there is any stains/marks on the disc, try watching them off my damp soft cloth and cleaning it gently, and then dry with enough soft cloth inwards out again.

Also go to your program files making sure there isnt any semi installed versions of Sims, if there is delete the folder for the Sims 2 Double Delux and try again :)

Also alot of games dont install with windows vista, why i am still using windows Xp, untill windows 7 comes out to the public.

Hope you found this helpfull.

I have the windows 2000, my sims 2 double deluxe is not starting


Its possible that the game is on a dvd and your computer only has a CD Rom drive. It should say on the front of the drive on your computer what it is.
Chipset is the video card inside the pc (Either ATI or Nvidia)
