    I have the Sims Double Deluxe set (incl. House Party) and Unleashed. They seem to run okay for the most part, but I cannot ever save a game. I simply get a message that an error was encountered while trying to save. The game will keep running with the cursor stuck as an hourglass, though it becomes a little unstable after that. I can usually just quit the game without saving, and there are no further problems.

    I suspect it might be one of those infamous XP compatibility issues (I'm running XP professional), but I've never read of anyone else having this problem with the Sims. Any suggestions?

    A friend of mine came across the same issue, as I recall the only way he fixed it was by un/re installing The Sims and X-Pacs one by one. If you do this make sure you have your CD keys for each disk at hand for they will be needed for installation.

    Another suggestion would be goign to the sims website and downloading the sims file cop and running it.
