Yes i did that didnt help....:sad: and its the sims 1

is there an error message or what? - what happens ezactly - does it not come up at all?

are you logged in as an administrator?
has the sims previously been installed on that mchine?
what os and hardware do you have?

No, i have tried half to reinstall half my games and the installshield doesnt work! You know wer i cud fix it? :confused:

this happens sometimes. in my case installshield always gave me "unknown error"

there is software that can repair a broken installlshield but if that fails you may need to reinstall the OS

They want you to have it, instructions are there. Check your version number if you wish to get the same one [in program files\common files\]. Mine , XP home, is version 6, if that is any help.
