Sims 1 Complete Collection Problem with start.exe.

Post by Princess1989 on Fri 08 Sep 2017, 01:18

I installed the game correctly but when I try and transfer the sims.exe from the #crack to the sims folder on programs x86 it says windows cant create a shortcut here. Do you want the shortcut on the desktop instead? I cant merge the files or do a shortcut so what am I supposed to do.

copy the crack and paste it C:Program Files(x86)/Maxis/The Sims , then copy it again from there where you pasted the crack and paste it to desktop .

Yes, I''ve seen that problem many times.
Somewhere there seem to be a fault in the neighbourhoods.
Using another neighbourhood can solve the problem.

When you look at your install folder you'll notice that there are 8 neighbourhoods, called:
UserData
UserData2, 3,4,5,6,7 and 8.

I suppose that your problem already starts with neighbourhood 1 (folder UserData)
Change the foldername UserData to f.e. UUserData.

The game however needs a folder Userdata, so what you can do is:
Make a copy of f.e. UserData8 and rename that copy back to UserData.
Now start your game again and see if the problem is now solved.

Another possibility is to download an empty UserData from THIS SITE
Extract with Winrar, delete the UserData that causes the problem and replace by the downloaded and extracted neighbourhood.
After a succesful start you may of course delete the UUserData

By the Way
copy the crack and paste it C:Program Files(x86)/Maxis/The Sims , then copy it again from there where you pasted the crack and paste it to desktop .

Don't copy/paste it to your desktop: Use a shortcut instead for your desktop.
