Having problems with your EA - Electronic Arts Sims: Complete Collection for Windows ?

Stuck on loading

\015 We are running this on windows vista, and when we go into the neighbourhood the expansion packs begin to load, but they keep doing this in a loop and then the program freezes. We left it to see if it resolved itself, but it was doing this for nearly an hour until we closed it down using task manager. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

So is there no way in which I could play The Sims on my vista laptop, I am having the same problem, there must be a solution somewhere?
This edition is having some known compatibility issues with Vista. So please check for any patches or updates which will fix this.If you are unable to find, post a reply.I will check for relevant urls.
