I think that program you have mentioned is corrupt! Don't worry cause this happened to me too! All you have to do is

  1. Go to my documents and select the file with the name Sims 2
  2. Copy and paste that to the desktop
  3. Then re install Sims 2 and then after installing play the game for a little while and then log off
  4. Then go to My documents and copy the Sims 2 folder you copied to the desktop to My documents
  5. Then play your game!
You do this so that your saved games do not get lost even if you reinstall the game!

I am unable to install sims 3, the autorun box does not come up nor does an error. I can not load it in the programs either. I do see in the programs the vista symbol for sims 3, but that is all. I am...

Press the Windows button in the button left corner of the screen. Choose the option "Computer" it should be halfway down on the right column. Inside you should see a list of drives like C: D: E:, etc... They will have names. You want to look for the one that says Sims 3, right click on that icon, then choose Explore or Open. This should open the disc structure and you should see a lot of files on it. Typically the file you want to look for is called like Setup.exe or Installer.exe. the .exe files are the actual programs that can run. One of those files will start the installer manually and should get you setup.

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
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!

If the issue still occurs, restart PC-cillin Internet Security using PCCTool:

Double-click My Computer on your Desktop.

Double-click Local Disk.

Go to the C:\Program Files\Trend Micro

Double-click the PCCTool.exe file (its icon appears as a capsule and a lifesaver).

On the General tab, under Start and Stop, click 2. Quit All Modules.

Click 1. Start All Modules.

Check if the issue still occurs.

The game is a zipped folder I want exe

I would not Trust downloading anything whatsoever from Limewire. 1. Because it's full of Fake Files, and 2. The Game/s your more then Likely talking about are probably "Full Version". Best off keeping to downloading the Demo Games from Reputable Sites, as you'll soon end up screwing your PC up due to loads of Spyware & Malware.

CSV file to AS/400

FTP is "line oriented." It has no concept of 'database record formats.' It transfers strings of characters with essentially no knowledge of 'fields' or 'columns' that make up 'records.' A 'record' to FTP is usually just whatever string of characters that is found between record delimiters.

Trying to FTP into a DB2 externally-described database file requires having strings of characters that are (1) laid out to match the receiving record format and (2) either are already converted to the proper CCSID and transferred as BINARY, or are ASCII characters that would result in conversions to all the right characters and transferred as ASCII.

Regardless of which alternative is chosen for "(2)", the handling of record format positions that would match up with packed-decimal or other non-character type fields would be very tricky.

That's where a somewhat 'standard' file format such as .CSV comes in.

However, you don't transfer the .CSV file directly over the top of the DB2 file. Instead, you transfer the .CSV file into a simple directory on your AS/400 and then use it as the source for a DB2 import function. On your AS/400, the import function is most often the CPYFRMIMPF command.

The import takes the .CSV file and handles all of the mappings for field positions and data types.

As such, the sequence becomes (1) FTP the .CSV file to the AS/400, and (2) run CPYFRMIMPF on the AS/400.

Note that the format of the .CSV file makes a difference. You need to ensure proper CCSID settings, proper quoting where necessary, proper record separators, etc. Make sure that you generate a .CSV that can be converted to the record format of the eventual target database file. Lots of possible details, but _far_ easier than trying to construct a matching DB2 record format on a different platform.
