    Hello every1, I am having problems with the sims 2 I have yesterday installed the sims 2 with all 18 expansion packs on to it I have a Windows 7 pc it is a Dell Inspiron it has i5 core processer I have started playing the sims 2 and I have noticed that even though it works I can not do some things such as when I went into boolProp and tried to have my Sim abducted by aliens it did not work and also tried to get my sim to order a service that did not work also.

    I have searched on google already and there is some reported compatibility problems with the sims 2, I tried to run it in windows XP compatibility mode like suggested but that did not work so I got windows to try and find a answer to the problem but it said the sims 2 launcher is out of date, has any body got a straightforward answer to how I can get the sims 2 working perfect on my laptop? Thanks, Jake

    Please refrain from posting in other peoples thread. If you don't get a response after 24 hours of the initial post, just post in this one and your thread will go to the top of the list.

    What do you meant by going to boolProp and are you using this to get your Sim to order something?

    I've deleted your posts from those other threads, please do not post to other people's threads asking for help as that just creates unnecessary confusion.

    Did you have have issues with the installation? Did you install and patch the games from the original CD's or where did it come they come from?

    You also need to be more specific Dell you have, Inspiron is a line with thousands of unique models in it. Which model do you have?
