The Sims 2 Double Deluxe
Sims2 Double Deluxe Installation
FINALLY downloaded this game. Installed it & it says to re-install because it won't run properly or something, so i re-install, and SAME THING. someone, anyone help?? I love this game but the installation and time consumption of it all sucks.
Did you pause the download midway through? I've heard pausing downloads here can lead to errors.
If you didn't pause, what operating system are you using? Perhaps running it in compability mode with windows XP could help?
Some things to try.
When downloading the Download file of the game, save it to your hard drive rather than just running it from the browser.
Upgrade your video drivers to the latest version - at least DirectX 9c. Actually, many games NEED 9c to work. Running 10 or 11 are not always good enough. DirectX can be found at www.microsoft.com
If you run games under Windows Vista, then try running "as administrator": for that you to right click on the icon of the game, then chose "run as administrator"
If you are using Windows XP and Vista it is better to have administrative rights on your account.
You also may try using Compatibility Mode when running games on Vista: right click on the game icon, choose Properties tab and there will be a "Compatibility" tab with different settings
Sometimes lowering down security/or turning it off and see if it changes the situation - it may block the execution or files or block access to/from them.
If you have a problem with a game, try downloading it one more time, but to a folder somewhere else that a system folder - like Desktop, or C:/Program Files. Try not running it from the browser, because its better you save the file to your hard drive.
If you still have no progress see if you can try to download and install on another PC and check if it is a game related problem, or a PC related one.
Try ignoring the message and running it anyway, it could just be a small problem with the installer.
