Actually you need to have bought the original "The Sims" game, this being because the game's code looks for a registration to determine whether or not you bought it... Of course you can illegally get the real game, but that is highly unappreciated. Find a "The Sims" game in an exchange shop or on eBay for really cheap, and that should be the start point you're actually looking for.

Sims games do not work without one of the actual game disks. Download all the Sims games except one then buy the actual expansion pack you didn't download. The game should run off that Sims disk you install.

I cant play the sims2 H&M fashion stuff because i have to download the sims 2 what do i do i went to all the dowloads and they wont work


Hi. You need to install first the sims 2 before you can install any expansion pack. Since sims 2 H&M is an expansion it really needs to have the sims 2 first before it can actually work. Hope this helps.

Sims to double deluxe eror report!!!!!!


You have to have the disc in your cd/dvd drive to play the game. the game will not play without the disc. If you have any expansion packs installed you need to use the latest expansion disc. For instance, I have Free Time but not Apartment Life so I must have the Free Time disc in the drive to play the Sims 2, not the Sims 2 disc.

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.

Wrong disc??how can i solve it??


Try uninstalling the orignal and expansion pack. If you have any other expansion packs uninstall them aswell. Install it all from scratch. If the problem doesnt subside, check your System Requirements, it may be that your computer doesnt support the data from Sims2.

The Sims 2 Freetime or The Sims 2 Apartment Life Wont Launch When Installed. After I Uninstall Them I Am Allowed To Play With Seasons. IVe Previously Played Freetime Before But Now It Just Wont Launch....


Make sure you have the original The Sims 2 game, Seasons,Freetime and Apartment Life are just expansion packs to the Original Game. Without the original game the expansions won't work.

If that's not the problem, then make sure they are installed correctly. If you used download m, most likely theyanagerare corrupted.


(Plus just as an extra question, why were you trying to play The Sims 2 a day before The Sims 3 came out, I couldn't sleep.)
