If you keep getting error messages its usually because you have too many petz, I used to get error messages all the time. To solve this problem create an empty folder outside of the petz program file, copy all your petz in the adopted petz folder of petz 5, mythos studios, ubisoft in program files. Once you have all your petz safe in this other file, empty the adopted petz one in the program file, you now have a petz game with no petz on it but it should work. Copy the petz you want to play with back into your adopted petz folder, its true you can't have all your petz available for selection straight away but you can swap each petz file from your safe file with all petz in back to the file that is used for game play. Note: If your petz don't appear straight away try opening and closing the program.

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.

Check that you are running in compatable mode. Since Windows 7 is so new not all programs run properly so you should have a link to run the program in a compatable stage. If not check and make sure your program is compatable with Windows 7. You may have to reinstall the program and you will probably get a message to install in a compatable mode. If you do make sure you install in that mode then the program should work. Windows 7 is like when they first came out with Windows Vista there are a few bugs that they are still working out and that is probably what is causing the problem.

How To Fix A Non-Loading Problem On Petz 5


I have written this so many times, that I decided to make a tip out of it so I dont have to keep answering the same question over and over.
To fix the problem when your loading thing doesnt load fully, and it comes up with an error message, you need to follow these instructions.
a)Save your petz to a flash drive, or CD or floppy disk. NOT to the computor as they will get deleted. (this step is only if you want to keep your petz)
b) Uninstall and click "No" to "Do you want to save your petz?"
c) Install again.
d)Put your petz back on your game, by putting the Flash Drive/floppy/CD into the computor and copying the petz files into the petz folder. (if you kept your petz)
e) Play the game from My Computor, Petz 5, Play.
You will need to have the disk in whenever you want to play for e) to work.
If this doesnt work, ith saving your petz, skip steps a), and d).
Hope this tip helps. :D

Error Message For Petz 5


When you reinstall the game do you click 'yes' to 'do you want to save your petz'?
You need to click 'no for it for work. You will lose all your petz.. but its the only way (that i know of) to get ur game working again.
Also, when you go to play the game, go to My Computor and click on Petz5 to play, instead of playing it from the shortcut or whatever. That means you need to have the disk permentently in.
And, when you fastforward (time glitch) only forward one day at a time (opening up petz after you forward, closing, and going forward another day).
Hope it works :)

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


Hope this helps!

Dogz 5 Won't Work!


This happened to mine 2. I uninstalled it, but the folder was still there, so I went on search, local disk, and searched ubi soft then deleted it. After that it worked, except I've noticed if you press save pets when uninstalling, it doesn't work.

If I want to keep my pets, I go into the ubi soft folder, adopted petz, then I drag my pets to a new folder I make on the desktop. When the game is reinstalled, I put the pets in the folder back into the adopted petz folder.

This has been the solution for me, but I don't know if it will work for others. Good luck!
