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

Try opening windows explorer (not internet explorer) and go to the drive that has sims 2 in it and double click on the file "Autorun.exe" if it has it. Otherwise try "Install.exe" or maybe "sims2.exe" or something like that

SIMS 2 double deluxe, won't install


The first thing to check is the disc,, is it scratched, smudged try cleaning it or washing it with a solution of warm water and dawn dishwashing liquid. make the solution about 50/50 it should be slimy but not soapy. rinse it and let it air dry. if it is scratcheed try cleaning it with pledge furniture polish. This works wonders on discs. DO NOT use window cleaner. If the disc is new, it could be defective, exchange it for another. It might just take a longer period of time to load, you can try to wait it out.
If nothing else works, you can try a hard load, where you actually copy the files from the disc to your hard drive and install the game from the hard drive. Look here..

Sims to double deluxe eror report!!!!!!


You have to have the disc in your cd/dvd drive to play the game. the game will not play without the disc. If you have any expansion packs installed you need to use the latest expansion disc. For instance, I have Free Time but not Apartment Life so I must have the Free Time disc in the drive to play the Sims 2, not the Sims 2 disc.

I just bought the Sims 2 Double Deluxe and it won't let me play.


Double Deluxe is the first disc, you don't need any other disc. It should install.

Cant install sims 2 double deluxe.


Hi there, is the disc damaged at all? if it is, but not very deep scratches, try polishing the disc/disc's, with a very soft cloth. make sure you clean the disc from centre outworse not side to side like most people do, if there is any stains/marks on the disc, try watching them off my damp soft cloth and cleaning it gently, and then dry with enough soft cloth inwards out again.

Also go to your program files making sure there isnt any semi installed versions of Sims, if there is delete the folder for the Sims 2 Double Delux and try again :)

Also alot of games dont install with windows vista, why i am still using windows Xp, untill windows 7 comes out to the public.

Hope you found this helpfull.

I have the windows 2000, my sims 2 double deluxe is not starting


Its possible that the game is on a dvd and your computer only has a CD Rom drive. It should say on the front of the drive on your computer what it is.
Chipset is the video card inside the pc (Either ATI or Nvidia)

Installing the sims 2 double deluxe


Does your laptop have a DVD drive? It is likely that the Sims Double Deluxe disk you have is a DVD ROM and not a CD ROM.
If this is not the case, try clicking My Computer and selecting the CD drive to see if the computer recognises the disk at all. Run setup.exe if it does.

Sims2 Problems


This may or may not be the solution. I had the same problem and it turns out my computer only has a CD-Rom drive and the Double Deluxe requires a DVD-Rom drive. If this isn't the case, then I don't know what it is. :[
