Sims3 is incompatible


I assume you running it on Windows 7 32-Bit. Now before you trying the tips below, do make sure your computer is compatible and meet the Sims 3 requirement.

The Sims 3 can be run on a PC with Windows XP and Vista, and on a Mac. However, there is no official Windows 7-compatible version. This means that Sims 3 will not install on Windows 7 properly.
To fix this error, you need to run Sims 3 in Compatibility Mode. To do that, simply right-click the Sims 3 icon, select Properties and then select Compatibility. Then check the Run this program in compatibility mode for box and select Windows Vista or Windows XP SP3. The game should work fine.

Sims 3 wont install onto my powerbook G4


Sims 3 will not run on a mac that isn't using an Intel based processor. You will have to upgrade from a Power-PC processor in order to use the latest version of sims.

Will my Gateway NV55C play Sims 3


If your laptop will play the demo, it should play the full game. Just be aware that patches and updates to the game can affect performance so if your running the game on the lowest settings, it isn't advisable to get it.
Looking at the graphics device in the NV55C it should run the game with no problems though.

Hope this helps

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.

I put my brand new game,the sims 2 double deluxe, disc into the drive and my computer is a windows xp, nothing asks me if i want to install the game or anything! please help, i really want to play my game!


Enter the "My Computer" icon on your desktop. From there you should find an icon named sims 2 or an abbreviation of that. Then right click on that and click autorun, if nothing happens right click then click open. Then look for a file named SETUP or a file with setup in it.

  1. my computer
  2. Sims2
  3. right click on autorun or open and find the setup file

Hey, if you are on vista, it may be that vista is annoying, try right clicking the icon, and going to compatibility tab and clicking "Run Windows Xp Sp2" Thats the most I cant think would work P.s. Also try running as Administrator or both :)
