I installed the sims 2 on my pc, and it was working fine for awhile. One day the command prompt would not come up. I have tried uninstalling the entire collection of The Sims 2. Then reinstalling. Nothing has worked. The rest of the computer works fine (HP Laptop may 2008). I am at a lose of what to do now. Please give me something to try other than buying a new pc.
There is another piece of software which uses the same key combination (Ctrl-Shift-C) and can stop the cheat console from working - try following the instructions here: http://sumomo.modthesims2.com/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Cheat_Box_Won%27t_Appear

1 - Open a Command prompt using "Run as Administrator" (Start>All Programs>Accessories>Command prompt)
2 - at the prompt type: CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\"
3 - hit enter
4 - a new prompt will appear, showing the above path
5 - at the next prompt type the makelink command (described below)
mklink /d "Fallout New Vegas" "G:\games\Fallout New Vegas"
(*** "G:\games\Fallout new Vegas" is an example. You will want to put the correct path to your Fallout New Vegas install folder.)
6 - hit enter
7 - This should create the representation of a new folder in the "proper" steam directory. (If you were to open this folder, it should take you to the real "Fallout New Vegas" folder, wherever it actually resides.)
8 - You will need to re-create any shortcuts using the new "proper" path. (IE C:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\Fallout New Vegas\FalloutNVLauncher.exe)
Q & A
- What did I just do?
You created a Portal between two folders to make them capable of existing in the same time-space. (For lack of a better layman's description) Be wary, this may cause the release of exotic particles into a neighboring universe.
- Why did this work?
When the computer now tries to find Fallout it will go to the default directory, and find the "Fallout New Vegas" symbolic link (again represented as if the folder were actually there) and use it as a window to the actual install. The game will be fooled into thinking it's using the default install directory, when it is not.
- Why not just use a shortcut?
Because it won't work.
