can't run SIMS 2 on windows 7 after installation

hi. can you help me out here? can sims 2 be played on windows 7? is sims 2 compatible with windows 7? because i've tried to install sims 2 on my laptop and after completing the installation, and pressing "run the program", it says that "Please insert the correct CD-ROM, press Okay and restart". where is the problem? is it with the CD or with the compatibility? thanks.

Is this a legit copy, or one you've downloaded and burned to a disc?

Hello everybody!
I have the same issue as the one posted before. I have installed the sims 2 game on my Windows 7 ultimate and the installation went fine. Unfortunatly, I can't play the game because of that error of compatibility. Although, I've checked on windows compatibility site and it says the game is comapatible!

Hi kitten07,

If the updates alone don't work, try running the game in Compatibility Mode for Windows XP SP2. Let me know if that helps.

Cheers,

I've installed it all over again and tried with sims 2 deluxe and ran that compatibility with windows xp SP2. BUT when I try to run the game it says "Conflict with Emulation Software detected" This is wearing me out. My emulation soft is Magic ISO
