The Sims 1: Complete Collection Installation Error. [SOLVED]

Post by 911181 on Sun 11 Dec 2011, 06:55

Hello:

I downloaded this torrent and I extrated the files using WinRAR. I double click start.exe and click the install button, then I get the following error, "Unknown error encountered, aborted setup...". Then a pop-up shows up, "An error occured while launching the setup. The remote procedure call failed.". If I tried to double-click start.exe without extracting then nothing happens. Any suggestions I really want to play.

Hello,

I'll reinstall mine and let you know if I have any issues too.

//EDIT

Hello,

It seems to be working just fine for me. Please use the following extraction method:


Please open the .rar file you downloaded using only WinRar, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org . (If you use any other software than WinRar, like WinZip or 7-zip, the files will get messed up!)
When
you've opened the file using WinRar, select áll the files in it and
drag & drop them to a folder on your Desktop. When the extraction is
done, close the .rar file and open the folder on your Desktop.
Now,
start by reading the included "# Installation Guide.txt" and you should
be able to get the game to work yourself. Good luck!

Hello,

Please open the "setup" folder and start the "setup.exe" instead. See if it makes any difference.

I was so happy when i found this Sims collection, but maybe i have the same problem.
Kept me busy for the last 2 hours Sad
I can install, but to start the game it seems its starting but then screen goes black and its gone.

When i did fix compatibility problems, it said its missing "The Sims Data Directory".

Done copy n paste.
Have tried as explained above by desktop, that also doesnt work.
I have tried settings to 800x600.
Not really sure what else i can do. I dont even get the start up screen anymore for possible options.

I have windows 7, dont know if thats an isshue.

Hope it can be fixed.

I figured it out. I had to use the "Eraser" tool in the "Eraser" folder. Now it works! Very Happy

Hello,

The "Eraser", lol? That's odd. Anyhow, thank you for the information, I'll keep it in mind for future reference!

Have fun playing!
