the sims 2 compatibility issues


I am trying to start the sims 2 on windows 7 (64bit) but it all the time gives this message:

This programm has known compatibility issues

Below it says : the sims 2 has a known compatibility issue with this version of windows.

I have updated both my windows and the sims 2 (updater), i have tried to change my screen resolution but that also has no effect.

Anyone any ideas how to solve this ?
