The Sims 2 Complete Collection - can't install Family Fun. [SOLVED]

Post by nikomiku on Wed 15 Jun 2016, 19:08

Hello!  I'm new here.
I've got your's Sims 2 Complete Collection torrent, downloaded and extracted it into fresh folder. The installation was fine until I tried to install Bon Voyage and Family Fun. When I clicked AutoRun.exe on both of games, a window "Please insert disk number 1" appeared before language selection, not after, which is odd. Strangely, the rest of EPs and SPs autoruns run fine without problems.  Hmmm, sure? I moved both games to the other folders, run them as administrator and in compability mode, but it helped nothing. Has anybody got any solution for this strange problem? pale

Hello, welcome to the forum,  Very Happy
try following this guide. Try running .exe files of these expansion packs as administrator, not AutoRun.exe. Also try again extracting .rar files that give you error.

Ok but, try to extract them again, it's possible an error occurred when you first extracted these files.

Welcome to the forum @nekomiku,


Did you use WinRAR for extraction ? And did you eventually move the folders with the extracted stuff, directly under the desktop ? I still happen to have both of these DLC on MEGA, back then from when I helped compiling the pack.

Bon Voyage:
https://goo.gl/3L5joI


Family Fun Stuff:
https://goo.gl/LlYKzp



So yes, try re-downloading these packs if all else fails and see what you can do with that. Good luck !

Can you upload it to the other site? Because MEGA says that I exceeded the limit.

To download files you need to delete cookies for Mega.nz.
If you're using Chrome:
1. Go to Settings using menu in top right corner. (three horizontal lines)
2. Scroll down and click Show advanced settings...
3. In the Privacy section, click Content settings.
4. Under Cookies, click All cookies and site data.
If you want to delete all cookies, click Remove all.
If you want to delete cookies just for Mega.zn, in search bar type Mega.nz and hover over mega.nz and you'll see little grey x. Click on it and try again downloading files you need.
Use this method for every file sharing service if pop up that you exceeded limit.
If you have other internet browsers just google how to delete cookies (name of your browser).
If you're using Mozilla Firefox click here.
If you're using Opera click here.

Not necessary, I pasted the link to IE, and it started without problems.

EDIT: It shows an error with not enough memory.

Not necessarily, but it is worth a try if you are really having difficulties. That said, you can also press CTRL + SHIFT + DELETE, to bring up a menu. From there, you can choose to delete the cache, cookies, browsing history and more. This should work in Chrome, Firefox as well as Internet Explorer.

OK, I finally managed to install BV, now there's other problem - when I try to install Family Fun, a window "Unable to locale required file or required file is corrupted." appears.

Try restarting your PC. If that doesn't work try extracting .rar file again.
Follow the steps mentioned below:
Right click on the program setup file and click Properties.
Click Compatibility tab.
Under compatibility mode section, check mark "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and select "Windows XP Service Pack 3" from the dropdown list.
Under "Privilege Level" section, check mark "Run this program as an administrator"
Click ok to apply the changes.
Open the file and install it.

Go extracted folder. I don't really remember but either it's setup.exe or ep04.exe, depending on addon. If you can't find it in search bar type .exe

But no setup.exe Hmmm, sure?

It says that it can't locate CD-ROM. And I think it's for running the game.
