Re: HELP Installshield is giving me problems

Did you uninstall SIMS first? I would ask if you have added any new devices (like a new video card) to your machine. The idea is that a device driver is being installed and there may be a conflict or file that is locked while installing. Do you actually get an error? Please indicate it here.

1) Uninstall SIMS
2) Shutdown the computer, wait for 15 seconds
3) Restart the machine, if any new changes occur, let them happen, then start at 2 again until nothing updates.
4) Reinstall SIMS

If these don't work, make sure your machine still meets the minimum requirements of the game.

Also, see that the disk is clean. Possibly make a backup copy of the game on DVD/CD and try from that.

One more thing, make sure you scan your system for Virus.

The sims 3 problem of my computer deleted by itself so I am trying to install it back on. How do you install the game.

I think your antivirus is deleted the sims 3 because If you use the pirated copy of game you get a crack
and most antivirus take crack as a virus and deleted it without taking your permission make sure you are using a genuine product .

If you are you using genuine copy just quit your antivirus for 1 day and install your game in this way
you know that your antivirus is deleting or not

The sims themselves in the game don't speak any real language, just sounds with balloons that explain what they want.
