The sims 1, can`t launch start.exe file.[SOLVED]

Post by The Cat In Boots on Thu 19 Jul 2012, 16:04

Hello! I got The Sims complete collection, but when I try to run Start.exe file nothing happenings (I also tried as administrator). Start.exe showing up in the task manager as it`s working, but nothing moving on. I also tried using Compatibility Mode (I have Vista), but it didn`t help too.

Hello!
No, I didn't because I can't install the game, and if I understand right I need first open 'start.exe' and only then I can replace folder from the crack...
I can't open 'start.exe' to follow the Installation Guide...

I guess you have a mistake in installation guide, cuz it says:

The Sims 1: The Complete Collection - Installation Guide

1. Open the 'start.exe' and follow on screen instructions.


But I was able to install the game only when I open Setup.exe from Setup folder....

Now I install the game, apply crack, but when I try to start playing (I created desktop icon from that file that I replaced from the crack) appearing message "It comes to our attention that you have installed another Sim pack after The Sims Making Magic. For this work properly, The Sims Making Magic installer will now update your installation" and after I press OK "To continue with the installation, please insert disk 1 of the Sims Making Magic into the CD-ROM and press OK". And I can`t even close this message. Where is my mistake?

Hello,

I'm not sure actually.
But I just installed the game myself and "start.exe" worked just fine, though it took a little while for the installation to start.
I wonder if using that "setup.exe" is the reason people get the error you mention. We get the same problem a lot and it's solved when people watch this video.

Thanks for the help! I try solve it myself and game works when I run from administrator (I didn`t reinstall) and it`a even save just fine. Maybe it can also helps to people who have the same problem as me.
But if I`ll get some problems I`ll reinstall by instruction. Maybe my freaky computer just didn`t want load that start.exe file, I always have all bugs with all games I play on it Shocked
