The sims 1 won't start

Post by wickedshadow on Mon 30 Jul 2012, 14:53

Hi! I installed the sims 1, all the games. I did exactly as it said in the installation guide. I opened the crack-folder and copied to c:\Program files (x86)\Maxis\the sims and replaced the old files. But when I start the game it just gets to a black screen, like it's starting. But a few seconds later it just shuts down... What's wrong?


I also tried the other way that you're showing in your youtubevideo. I
installe the sims first. But when I do it just comes up a text with
"Unknown error encountered, setup aborted"

Please try running the game's .exe file as an Administrator: right-click on the .exe file and choose "Run as admin".
Good luck!
