(and we r always loosing our petz which if VERY annoying!!! but we keep bringing them back on) but then it doesnt work once we reopen the petz 5 page!!!!!! please help!!

    Yes! I have the same problem! On my old Windows 95, it worked. 1 mounth later, it stopped loading and an error-poppup appeared. Than, I tried it on an XP PC, but there was no sound and than, 1 mounth later, it stopped loading. The same thin with my Vista-Pc. When the popup appeared, I clicked the other Petz.exe (via CD), and than, it worked (but all my petz where deleted...) but now, I have the same problem, the game won't launch...

    Yes! Me too! It wont work on windows vista... what do I do!

  • Thomas96 Nov 27, 2008

    I will click on the Petz 5 icon and it will start up, but a little after halfway through it will stop loading and will say "Petz 5 has stopped working" and then say "Close down program or go to internet to see problems." Help!

  • Anonymous Feb 10, 2009

    Exactly the same problem. I started it up and it didn't work, and then I started it up again and it had deleted everything!

  • Thomas96 May 11, 2010

    Umm... well if you restart it though... won't you lose everything you have? All your animals and babies and everything, because my sister's dog and her cat just had a set of babies (four each) and she's very upset about losing them all if she has to uninstall it. It sucks because its such a fun game but they cheat you out of being able to play.

When uninstalling it, don't save your pets!!!! If you save your pets it won't load. It worked for me, so i hope this helps!! ;)

I've had the same problem for years on different computers, don't know a complete solution, I used to have to uninstall and delete all remaining folders that were left behind, before a reinstall would work at all. This week, my kids have just tried making sure all areas are 'cleaned up' before exiting, and for now it seems to be working.

How To Fix A Non-Loading Problem On Petz 5

I have written this so many times, that I decided to make a tip out of it so I dont have to keep answering the same question over and over.
To fix the problem when your loading thing doesnt load fully, and it comes up with an error message, you need to follow these instructions.
a)Save your petz to a flash drive, or CD or floppy disk. NOT to the computor as they will get deleted. (this step is only if you want to keep your petz)
b) Uninstall and click "No" to "Do you want to save your petz?"
c) Install again.
d)Put your petz back on your game, by putting the Flash Drive/floppy/CD into the computor and copying the petz files into the petz folder. (if you kept your petz)
e) Play the game from My Computor, Petz 5, Play.
You will need to have the disk in whenever you want to play for e) to work.
If this doesnt work, ith saving your petz, skip steps a), and d).
Hope this tip helps. :D

Petsz was working fine... in about a week .... it stoped working and thid came up while it was loading petz 5 has stopped working a problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close...

The only way to fix that problem (that i know of) is to uninstall Petz and click 'no' to i dont want to keep my petz.You will lose all of your petz.. but it doesnt wqork if you clikc yes so yeah.. Then install it again, and instead of using the game shortcut thats on ur desktop, go to My Computor, and click on Petz and play it from there.
Hope it works for you. :)

I cant download animals for this videogame over the wont go onto the game...not even sure if its downloading correctly

Be sure that you put the file into the "Dogz" Folder.
How you find the folder:
Go to your BOOT and search for the folder "Ubisoft" Double click, you will find the "Studio Mythos" Folder, double click, the "Petz 5" Folder, double click on it, now the "Resource" Folder and now open the "Dogz" Folder and out your downloaded Petz in it.

I just bought a copy of Dogz5 with Catz5 attached

Dogz and Catz 5 both seem to have alot of problems! Disk space means you dont have enough room to copy it onto your computer, I would suggest deleting some downloaded things (nothing important though, you dont want to mess up your computer, lol)
