This will probably sound stupid, but what the heck. :eek: Is there any way at all (patch or otherwise) to run The Sims on Windows 2000 Professional? It's the only game I play, but I've decided I hate Windows XP and want to use Windows 2000 Professional. I am preparing to partition my hard drive (for about the 5th time), but wondering if there is another way around this problem? Thanks.

It should run, I've never had trouble running that game on Windows 2000.

If it isn't working for you, you should make sure you have the latest service pack for Windows 2000. The latest patch for The Sims might help, too! It can't hurt anyways.

SHOOT! I wish I would have found this site 3 months ago when I built and bought my new computer!! After buying my new computer I let it sit for 3 months while I saved up the money to purchase Windwos 2000 Professional ($270), Windows XP Professional ($200), Partition Magic 8 ($65). I did this because my friends (yes, more than one even, including one who works as an IT) *insisted* that The Sims would not work on Windows 2000. They destroyed my computer several times over because they don't know what they are doing. Today I had my friend put it back to it's original state, no partitions or anything, and installed only my Windows 2000 Professional OS. I was preparing to learn how to do the partitioning myself when I decided to post this question. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I just installed The Sims and it works fine.

I know I look like a complete idiot, but I trusted my friends because for a long time they knew a lot more about computers than I did. From now on I will do things myself and come here if I need help.
