Sims 2 Install on Windows 7

I can't get Sims 2 to install on Windows 7 build 7000. The autorun starts and then just stops. Nothing happens. It doesn't even ask for the license number. Can anyone give me any ideas or things to try?

Why don't you buy The Sims 3? TS2 is obsolete already. I have every single TS1 EP and the same goes for TS2 (all EP's and SP's). i deleted all of them so as to let free space for TS3 EP's! By the way , I tested both TS1 and TS2 on 7 and they work perfectly!

I have a different problem with w7 and sims2, and that is it does NOT save anything. Whenever I restart the game there is nothing but the basic buildings. There are no families not to mention that there is nothing left from what I had created during previous session. It's completely crazy. Had anyone a similar problem? Amy idea of solution?

Hi, my problem is kinda different, I upgraded from vista and before it my sims games played smoothly, now after reinstalling, they load fine, i can create families, but, when I try to get into a lot it loads and loads for ten minutes or so, when that happens I close sims 2 via task manager, then try to play again when i finally get into the lot, sims stay static, they don't move, just like statues, i tried unistalling and reintalling the games, patching etc, I don't know what else to do, please help.

Thanks in advance

I just got a brand new laptop with the newest version of Windows 7 and I put my Sims 2 CD into the drive and it doesn't run at all to install! I've tried everything I know to try and get it to do the Auto-run and to get it to install, but I'm not having any luck!!!

HELP PLEASE!!!
Hi, i have Windows 7 on my laptop and i have borrowed The Sims 2 from a friend to install it.
The Sims 2 installed fine but when i double click on the icon to play it, a message saying "This program has known compatibility issues" pops up. i can either Check for solutions online (which takes me to the sims 2 website to download a patch. i dont know what that is) or i can Run Program. if i click run program, then it goes into the sims 2 but its not full screen
if anyone knows how to make the game play with a full screen, or how to fix the compatibility issue, please let me know. it would be much appreciated

Patches are released to fix problems and/or add features the program. With that said, I highly recommend you install the latest patch available for the game. I would also suggest you update your Direct X files.

From my Tips on Troubleshooting Game Issues ....

5 - Update your Direct X files - Contrary to popular belief, just because Windows 7 is DX11 capable doesn’t mean it has the latest DX9 files!!! Most game issues can be fixed by simply updating the DX files.
Let me know.

thanks for telling me i should install a patch. i installed one called the sims 2 DVD patch, from the sims 2 website and it doesnt have compatibility issues anymore.
i suggest this for anyone with compatibility issues also

as for the screen issue, i changed the resolution in the game (under game settings) to match the resolution i had set for my laptop and now the game is fullscreen.
