My computer for some reason will not read the .cat files right and is tryin to say they are a secure catalog file or something. I have already gone into folder options and changed the file to be used by Petz 5 but it will still not work. How can i fix it to work? Thanks to any help in advanced
.cat files are secure catalog files. Are the files in the correct folder? The file location should be something like Programfiles>Ubi Soft>Studio Mythos>Petz 5>Resource>Catz. If the files aren't in the Catz folder under resource, they won't work.

I can't tell you from experience because I have never played that particular game. However any other game i've ever played where you save your progress, there is always a profile or saved game file.
You will want to open My Computer-->C:/ (hard drive)-->Program files--> Ubisoft-->Petz in there you will find a file or folder with an obvious name (user name, profile name, saved game) something along those lines. Save the entire folder if there is one or just the single file to your desktop, reinstall the game....when you reinstall just make sure you put the file or folder back exactly where you found it.
Note:: You may need to start a new profile when you reinstall, afterward just put your saved file back where it belongs for it to work properly. (Sometimes the game needs to create the profile folder or saved game folder in the directory.)
***** Last thing is when you do uninstall the game it may ask you if you want to delete user settings and saved game files. If it does click no, that way you won't have to worry about loosing your stuff at all.
Hope this helps, post back if you need any further assistance. Thank you for choosing Fixya!
When you unintall Petz 5 you need to not save the petz, which is an option just before it starts uninstalling. Unistall, Then install it again, and run the game from My Computor, Petz, then play.
hope it works for you.
Firstly, open a folder. You need to click on 'Organize' >>
'Folder and Search Options'. On here click on the 'view' tab, then
check the box for 'Show hidden files and folders'. Click OK on this.
Next go onto C: and click on your user name, then click on AppData.
In here, click on 'Local' >> 'VirtualStore' >> 'Program
Files' >> 'Ubi Soft' >> 'Studio Mythos' >> 'Petz 5'
>> 'Adopted Petz'.
Here is the file path if you need it:
C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Ubi Soft\Studio Mythos\Petz 5\Adopted Petz
at the moment you either would have to create new petz or try installing the game again. the way to see if you saved them is to go into the saved petz folder and find files of your animals , if they are there unlock and download any zip files and they should do it for you
Try deleting the game your petz well be saved!!!! and then re install it your petz well be in your files Go under local desk then look at the folders that come out your petz should be in there then press your right mouse button then transfur it to the petz 5 folder now your petz 5 disc must be in the computer! :) oh then just write them on the disc
This has happened to me too. Okay what you need to do is go into Program Files > Ubi Soft > Petz 5 > Adopted Petz. There is probably a file in there with the name of a Petz that hasn't left it's mother yet. Delete that file - don't worry, you will not lose the baby - and try reloading the game again. It works for me every time.
Ok, I got an answer from Daniel Wright, who has SP 2 and this is what he says:
"The solution is easy, go to your Petz 5 installation folder and rename setupapi.dll to something like setupapi.bak - Petz 5 will now load without any problems.
The problem only effects Petz 5 as Petz 4 doesn't include that file, and providing the game is patched it continues to run just fine on XP SP2."
