Do you mean the sims 1 or 2?

well, you can run either one of them in compatibility mode, rightclick the exe or shortcut, press options, press compatibility (if i'm right, my pc is in another language) and choose windows XP service pack 2

good luck

    oh yeah, maybe it's a good idea (in the same screen) to disable visual styles and enable run as administrator

Tip

Solve Installer issues


Many have been having an issue when installing the SIMS2 PETS expansion pack (EP) and Glamour Life EP.  The best way to resolve this is:
1. BACK UP your game folder first (usually: users + your folder + Documents + EA Games).  You want to back up the EA folder.
2. Download (do not install yet) the SIMS2 COMBO UPDATE patch at http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/18988
3. If you have already had the issue (which you probably did, otherwise you would not be reading this), delete your SIMS 2 folder from the HD and the EA games folder from the location mentioned above.  Yes, I know, it is painful but you saved what you needed, so stay with me.
4. Reinstall your SIMS 2 game (the base game).  Run it and make sure it works fine.  This will create a new EA Games folder where the old one was.
5. Now install the PETS expansion pack. If you want, start it to make sure it works fine.  All should be OK.
6. Now run the Combo pack. It will scan your HD to find the SIMS folder and what you need.  A window will open allowing you to select the install. Do it and install it.  If you click the arrow next to the installer options you will see there are patches for all the EP's, but they will be grayed except for the one you need.
7. Install your next expansion pack and run the combo patch installer again, now selecting the appropriate pack to patch.  Again, all others will be grayed except for the one you need.
8. Keep doing this with every expansion you install thereafter.  What the patch does is it updates each expansion pack to make sure it works by solving issues that came up after the release and will update everything up to December 2007.
9. After you are done, copy your original saved EA Games folder back into the location you had it.  You will need to hit 'replace' as SIMS will have installed a new EA Games folder in its place.  It is OK, this is all your games saved data.
10. Start SIMS2 and go look for your saved game!

EA download manager says I am offline?


I Fixed this poblem!!!

I had the exact same problem, up until 3 minutes ago. I deleted my EADM by going to control panel-program and features, then I went to EA download Manager, double clicked it, and uninstalled it form there. After I did this I had to exit all the applications on my computer. Then I went to the Internet and typed in EA Download Manager in my search box and found a link " ea-link.en.softonic.com/ "

(ts all green now, Sorry)

I redownloaded the EA Download Manager (for ignorant people like myself, I saved it to my Desktop, when it finished I then opened it, and I went and did all the steps it wanted me to do, until I got an Adobe Reader tab on top of my EA screen, and it wanted me to install something else. I did, then went back to finish downloading the manager. After I finished, I didn't have the disabled internet thing on my old manager did... I hope this helped, and I am sorry for it being so long.

The Sims Double Deluxe Won't load when I add the downloads folder


As long as you have your download file located in Documents/Ea Games/The Sims 2/Downloads (I already had this folder when I installed the game.) you should be fine.

Your might want to try taking out your Sim Blender, and try executing again. It may be causing the game to freeze before it loads all the way. I am currently having the same problems and I am looking for a solution.

Not responding?


if the game is brand new its not the game. the most likely reason this happens is because your computers graphics card is not sufficient, what is your graphics cards memory? the brand? model? if you do not know this, how old is your computer? when did you get it and when was the last time you updated your computer with new hardware?

Sims complete collection won't run on my windows vista


Hello.. The Sims collection does have some compatability issues with vista but EA has worked on it and actually it should run fine.May be any running process is conflicting with the game or you may have to update your Display drivers.
Also try using the compatability mode.Just right click on the game *.exe and select properties.then select the compatability tab and check the box "run in compatability with Win Xp[sp2]".
In adition you can check for any available patches here. http://www.electronicarts.in/search/?search=sims
