Sims 1 Collection Won't Start!

Post by Sumo3467 on Sat 25 Aug 2012, 21:56

Hello, I downloaded the Sims 1 Complete Collection from here and I've installed it using the exact directions from the installation guide and also from the video. But both times I tried to start it up, a black screen comes up for a few seconds and then it goes back to the desktop without any kind of error message. I don't know what to do. I've tried running it as admin, I've tried changing the compatibility and nothing seems to work. Please help!!

NOTE: I should probably say that both times I tried installing it, it never asked me to register. I don't know if that would make a difference, but I just figured I should note it.

Hello,

Try changing the compatibility mode to "Windows 2000".

Hello,

Try Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode, just to be sure.

Hello,

Odd, usually the "Run as admin" does the trick.
Please contact me via the Forum's chatbox when you see me online on the Forum.
I'll see what I can do for you.

Sorry for the problems!

Not sure if this has been figure out yet, but I have the same problem. Sad Tried everything I know of.

Edit: Just attempted a clean reinstall, the register prompt came up, but I still have the same problem trying to play. Nothing else has changed other than the register thing popping up.
