The Sims 2 Complete Collection: I can't get it to launch.

Post by jdsain on Mon 27 Nov 2017, 10:16

Hi! Honestly, this is probably a very stupid question to ask, but recently I tried downloading the sims 2 ultimate collection and while everything downloaded successfully, I can't get the game to launch. I've completed all the instructions, but i get a pop up saying I don't have DirectX 9? I'm not really sure what to do about this. I don't know if it matters, but I'm using Windows 10. If someone can please help, that'd be great! I apologize for my ignorance, I've never really done anything like this.

Hello and welcome to the Forum @jdsain,

You could try downloading and installing DirectX9 from the link here. Other than that, you could try using the "graphics rules maker" and see if it can add your graphics card to the game's database, and from then on see how it goes. The post here gives you initial instructions:

Good luck!
