hey jbird66...i have downloaded the game and it's expansion and stuff packs and it is not the first time i've done that...i used daemon tools and magiciso...because i have some trouble with my computer and i needed to restart it after i used magiciso for one game to mount the image and then i tried with daemon tools and it worked for some...it is not the first time that i installed many games at once and i had no problem with the game itself...and this is the reason that i signed in at tech guy cos' i don't know what i shoul do next :-??

try right clicking the shortcut to it and clicking run as administrator.
if it asks you if u allow this program or not a allor the program, click allow. i had the sims 1, and this always worked for me. it hasn't worked on the sims 2 though, but i think thats because i have windows vista

Hi, I recently bought the Sims 2 double deluxe. I installed it and it works fine. The only thing wrong with it is that all the buildings are bright red. The houses are flashing red and when I try to change the wallpaper it doens't work and it stays red. How do I fix this? is there something wrong with my disc?

Downloads
Okay, I have this really strange problem. Or maybe it's not as strange as I think: I downloaded some meshes and custom content. But when I run the game with these downloads, it stops responding halfway through the loading screen. What's wrong?!

What happens is that the most recent version of the game (expansion, not stuff pack) is what the game needs to run when you play it. If it tells you to use Apartment Life, then that's the disc you should have in there. I have all except for Holiday Stuff and Family Fun Stuff, so my most current expansion would be Mansions and Gardens. If I try to run the game using any other disc, it won't work. The game is just set up this way. Make sure you're using the correct disc.

Or are you saying that you're using the correct disc and the problem persists?

Hn.. Good question. I'm not exactly sure since I haven't messed with too many errors on the game myself. It tends to run pretty well. How much memory do you have free? For us, the game started freezing more when we acquired more expansions and stuff packs, so what we did was upgrade our computer. We upgraded our ram to 2GB and updated our Power Supply to 500 and upgraded our Graphics card as well. We also like to get a lot of custom content (CC), so that will also lag your computer.
