    i also have similar problems:

    1) i can't save any progress in my houses, it appears a dialog box saying there was an error saving...

    2) when i create a family, it doesn't register for the next time, it only allows me to edit the family or put them in a house on that time, no more.

    3) when i want to go downtown/Studiotown/Magictown with any Sim, the image gets stuck, only playing the music, and some minutes after that, it gets all black.

    4) which time i click any house to play the game, it appears 2 dialog boxes saying "the sims are moving to the newly created downtown and island vacations tour", something like that...

    does anyone know what can be the problem?

    Thank u so much!

Why cant i save my sims complete collection i have windows vista and it says an error has occured i dont get it wat should i do

I had this problem too. In vista you have to choose to run the sims in xp or an earlier mode. I ran mine in windows ME mode. you also have to slelect "run this program as administrator". then you should be able to save your game.

The sims complete collection won't save with vista

One of the biggest problems is that you are running it on Vista. The Sims Complete Collection was not developed with Vista in mind so there will be compatibility issues. One thing that you can try to fix this is right click it and click run as administrator. The reason why i say to do this is because one of the big things that vista tried to stop was viruses destroying your operating system by editing files without permission. By running as administrator, you override these rules. Programs cannot start themselves as administrator. This should clear any problems right up.

My game won't save help!!!!

Spotlight interferes with the way the program saves.  Open spotlight preferences and click on the privacy tab.  Tell spotlight not to search your save games folder.  then it should work fine.
