Installing The Sims Bon Voyage expansion pack

I'm using Mac OSX. I have The Complete Sims but it does not have what is on the Bon Voyage expansion pack. When I try to install the expansion pack it tells me there is no software there to install it into. This is frustrating. Do I need a more primitive version of The Sims to be able to use this expansion pack? The Complete Sims is not actually complete at all and I didn't know I would have this problem when I ordered the expansion pack. Is there a way to do this or am I screwed? Thanks for your help

    Yes, I think this bites. What I'm guessing is that the expansion packs only work if you have one of the older versions of The Sims and they don't work at all for The Complete Sims, which is far from complete and doesn't include any of the stuff from their expansion packs. That's just a guess. What do you think?

    call me profoundly inept..I'm on their (SIMS) support page, and I'll be hard pressed to find an OSX support strategy..can you comment?

    that's all fine. what I'm confused on here, is where the SIMS compatibility with OSX comes in. I searched high and low to find something that suggests it's compatible. Can you illuminate us on this?

    if you're referring to a PC to Mac conversion pack, then you'll find it's totally an unsatisfactory approach. That's like a run time SIMS adventure, which would be the equivalent to an older 486 speed..oouuuuuchhhhhh

    guess you'll just need to hunker down and get one of those products that allow you to run windows on a mac, eh?

SIMS 2 UNIVERSITY INSTALLED BUT NOT LOADING UP, NOTICED PEOPLE HAVING SIMILAR PROBLEMS. MY OTHER SIMS 2 GAMES ARE PC DVD ROM SIMS TWO UNIVERSITY I BOUGHT IS A PC CD ROM IS THAT THE PROBLEM WHY IT WONT...


I think university is the first or second expansion pack. I know there are issues if the expansions are not installed in order of their release. if you have say, seasons or freetime and then install university, it may not run correctly. You have to uninstall the packs or the game and re-install them in correct order. Yes, it's a big pain but I had to do it twice.
Install the SIMS2, or double deluxe whatever you have then follow this order with exception of say nightlife if you have have double deluxe because it comes with the original game.

The Sims 2" Expansion Pack Order
  • "The Sims 2 University"
  • "The Sims 2 Nightlife" included in double deluxe
  • "The Sims 2 Holiday Party Pack" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Open for Business"
  • "The Sims 2 Family Fun" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Glamour Life" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Pets"
  • "The Sims 2 Happy Holiday" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Seasons"
  • "The Sims 2 Celebration" (A Stuff Pack) also in double deluxe
  • "The Sims 2 H&M" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Bon Voyage"
  • "The Sims 2 Teen Style" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Free Time"
  • "The Sims 2 Kitchen and Bath Interior Design" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The SIms 2 Ikea Home" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Apartment Life"
  • "The Sims 2 Mansion and Garden" (A Stuff Pack)

My game, The Sims 2 Double Deluxe has what you call a bug in it that did not appear until one day when I was playing because we had all the expansion packs and the pets disappeared from the game and I went...


After installing Double Deluxe install the expansions you have in this order...
The Sims 2" Expansion Pack Order
  • "The Sims 2 University"
  • "The Sims 2 Holiday Party Pack" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Open for Business"
  • "The Sims 2 Family Fun" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Glamour Life" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Pets"
  • "The Sims 2 Happy Holiday" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Seasons"
  • "The Sims 2 H&M" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Bon Voyage"
  • "The Sims 2 Teen Style" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Free Time"
  • "The Sims 2 Kitchen and Bath Interior Design" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The SIms 2 Ikea Home" (A Stuff Pack)
  • "The Sims 2 Apartment Life"
  • "The Sims 2 Mansion and Garden" (A Stuff Pack)
your problem may be a graphics card issue. Did it work with the expansion packs or start problems when you installed the expansions?

maybe this link will be helpful if the above does not work.

I ininstalled sims2/double deluxe because I didn't want it because I got the sims2pets. but I found out I have to have the sims 2 double deluxe to install the sims2pets. When I enter the installation code...


Make sure there is no sims 2 content on your hard drive. if there are any EA folders on your comouter either in program files or in "my documents" delete them. Then try installing Double Deluxe again. Then you can install pets.
Pets is an expansion pack for the Sims 2 base game. Other expansion packs are University, Seasons, Free Time, Bon Voyage.Open for buisiness and Apartment Life...If you plan to get other expansion packs you should install them in order of their release to avoid future problems. Nightlife expansion is included with Double Deluxe.

A simple google search for sims 2 expansion packs will show you the correct order to install and descriptions of each pack and what they add to the game. Seasons lets your sims go fishing for example. They can cook the fish they catch, and also plant gardens, and experience the changing seasons from summer to winter.

I can't install Sims 2 bon voyage


If you have more than 1 CD/DVD Drive then place it in the other.
If not, then restart your computer, ensure you have the latest drivers for your CD Drive (if any) and make sure that the CD Drive can read other disks!
If that doesn't work then the Disk may be faulty (suggest get a replacement)
