The Sims 2 - Mansion and Garden Stuff wont install

Post by Caribsimmer on Sun 22 Jan 2017, 17:54

Hey guys, I've had the Sims 2 complete collection on my pc for a few month now and i decided to extract and install it. I followed the instructions included ad installed all the packs, but Mansion and Garden stuff is giving me the "Inset Disk 1" pop up. I get it no matter where i move the folder the installation file is in or what i rename it. Help!

First of all re-apply the crack for Mansion & Garden. If that doesn't help:

Maybe you had Mansion & Garden installed previously.
Check the register.

1. Keep Windowskey pressed and type R
2. In the little window type   regedit
3. Look for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and click it open
4. Look for folder SOFTWARE and click it open (only applicable for 32-bits windows)
   64-bits Window owners: Search for WoW6432Node and click it open
5. Look for EA GAMES and click it open
6. Right-click on Mansion & Garden and choose Remove/Delete.
7. close regedit and re-boot your computer
8. re-install Mansion & Garden and apply the crack

Hello and welcome to the Forum @Caribsimmer,

Did you use WinRAR for extracting the contents of the .rar? Did you extract ALL contents of the .rar, into empty folders, one folder per game/expansion? Then start the installation from the folder, where you extracted all contents of the .rar to.

Then it looks like Mansion&Garden is damaged.
Let your torrent-client force a recheck on the torrent.
