    Have you tried cleaning out the registry entries in HKLM\Software and in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and then try to reinstall it again.

    just delete the folder again so that there is no trace of the sims left on your computer

    then u can insert the disks and reinstall from scratch

    I finally did something right and got it back .. I had to delete the files in the C: drive and the one in my documents at the same time ... but after installing the game a few times I still can not get my downloads to show up in the game .... GAH I want to chuck the whole thing out the window right now

    Download the stuff from the sims website and it will automatically install the things when you open the download.

    Just to confirm:
    Is this the Sims 1 or the Sims 2?

    Any Custom Content you download to put into the game needs the 'Custom Enabler Package' or the CEP. You can find that for free here:
    http://sims.ambertation.de/en/cep/

    Follow the simple instructions on how to use it.

    Sims2 downloads also require meshes which are the original items and then you may find recolors to go with them. If you download recolors you must have the mesh or else nothing will show up....unless it is based on a Maxis game item.
