    Hey I recently just got a laptop which came with windows 8 and I want to install my sims 2 onto it but it won't work.
    I installed the Sims 2 base game which said it wasn't compatible but it ended up opening anyway, but none of the expansion or stuff packs will work.

    Any ways around this?
    Thanks :)

    Welcome to TSG! (y)

    First, I know nothing about windows 8 so these are just ideas.
    You can try all the patches and compatibility mode. I had to patch the base game to run in Windows 7.
    I don't have the expansions but maybe you can try running in XP or Vista mode.
