Question about EA - Electronic Arts Sims: Complete Collection for Windows

Sims Complete collection doesn't load

As soon as the silver box comes up in the screen saying Sims Complete Collection, a window comes up saying 'it has come to our attention that you have installed another expansion pack after sims complete collection. For this to work properly, The sims makin magic installer will now update your installation. Click OK to proceed' when you do click OK it uninstalls and installs and same thing happens again. I haven't had any other sims games before and my computer is windows vista, what should I do?

I believe the reason is that it is because you are using windows vista. It seems to cause a LOT of problems with The Sims and The Sims 2. Me and my friends are avid players. Two of them got vista and was having all kindas of problems. I would recommend to downgrade to XP (Most of the time hardcore gamers go to xp since they play games better and less problems) . Or if want to try another way, go to the Sims icon properties and on compatability, set for Windows xp/2000. If that dont work, might need to downgrade.

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.

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]".
