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.

When I try to save and quit, Sims 3 Showtime, I receive an error message. The game won't save my progress. Then I get a message from windows saying the Sims 3 is not responding and it shuts the game


Ok, not really sure if this will help.
Right mouse click the Sims 3 icon and choose properties at the bottom. Then choose the Compatibility tab and at the bottom, check the button: Run this program as Administrator.

Hope this is helpful.

I am tryign to uninstall fix it, get error 5006


Installation or uninstallation of an application or game fails and gives the following error code:

This issue is due to a previous installation not finishing properly



Solution 1. Rename the Installshield folder

Make sure you've enabled Show hidden files and folders.

Find and rename the Installshield folder:

Windows 32-bit: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Installshield

Windows 64-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Installshield

If there is an Installshield file in the Common Files folder, rename that one also (e.g. to Installshield_OLD).



Solution 2. Remove all traces of previous uninstall

If renaming the Installshield folder had no effect, find and delete any traces of uninstalled applications.

Applications that can assist you are: Revo Uninstaller, Windows Installer Cleanup Utility , CCleaner.

Alternatively, do a manual clean-up:

Close all running programs. Then clear the Temp folder (found via input of %temp% in Start > Search or Start > Run).

Use the Windows registry editor to delete registry entries related to the program.

Restart the computer.


hope this helps

Run-time error '-2147467259 (80004005)': Unrecognized database format 'C:Windowssystem32wints.dat'.


To fix this program, you need to rename a folder containing a previous version of the installer. Open My Computer and navigate to C:Program FilesCommon Files. Right-click the Installshield folder and select Rename. You can rename the folder anything, but, as Google suggests, something like Installshield-old will give you a hint about the folder’s previous name. Close My Computer and try running the installer again. If that doesn't work tell me and I will see what I can do.

Desktop Software Will Not Load!


The problem that you are encountering right now is a windows problem. "idriver.exe" is related to the installshield application on your computer and installshield is used to install application on your computer, so if idriver is not working, installshield will not work also. I suggest try the windows update. It might fix the problem.

Error Containing "0x123454" when installing software


Any error code beginning with "0x" is related to a problem with incompatibilities with the InstallShield program which is used to install all of the components. To fix this find the "InstallShield" folder on the computer (the location varies by computer OS, but is generally located in "c:\Program Files\Common Files\") and move the contents to a new folder on the desktop of the compter. If everything works well you can discard the new folder (and the old InstallShield contents). Run the Nikon installer again and it will install properly.
