vista and the sims help
 
i resently found a old copy of the sims and i wanted to show my GF how much
better it is for the pc than the ps2.
When i instal the sims it works fine and no problems, i run the game when
i'm done, that when i go play it the second time it starts to load then
crashes and goes back to the desktop.
I know it's a long shot but does anyone know how to fix it?

thanks

Erin, I sims2 games and I had to get the patches for all of the games. I am
not sure which version of sims you have, but if you have sims2 go to
http://thesims2.ea.com, and then to help for the patches. I hope this will
help.

I also installed it ok but it won't work even trying in in XP mode. So I
would also like someone to give me some advice on this. (should it be Win98
mode even?

I can load and get the neighbourhood screens ok and can access the houses
etc. but I create Sims and try to place them but they then disappear
entirely.

Is the problem that the "My Documents" folder is no longer named that in
Vista and all the connections and folders are misdirected?

They seemed to be in some type of "roaming" folder, not the usual ones I am
used to.

If you find an answer about the Sims please share I bought my new computer to
play the sims and I can't get any of them to work right!
Thanks,
