Yup. It is. I tried installing on mac too with the a crack on my cd that has to be manually installed (I didn't use this when I used the Game Fix) and I got the same error. Sad

Ok then.

Uh, I have a CD. Didn't get it from here though. It was working already first time I used it. Along with Generations and Fast Lane Stuff. But I used the manual crack included in the CD. After that, I decided to get the other expansions from the same place I got the CD. Then while installing, I had an error for low memory. Then I changed the settings of my VM so I'd have more memory. It wouldn't work so I just compressed the VM Hard Disk then when I started it, I got the blue screen (boot blah blah) so I just reinstalled Windows XP on my VM and deleted the old one. When I installed it again, that started to show up even with just the base game or base game plus Generations and Fast Lane Stuff.

Hello,

OK, so let's assume it's a modified installer.

Hello,

I'd recommend downloading a Mac version in torrent format.
