Executing The Sims under Windows-XP

vbimport

#1

I’ve installed “The Sims” under Windows XP Pro, and my daughters can’t execute if their accounts doesn’t have administrator privileges.
Is there any solution to this annoyance?
Thanks in advance


#2

its been awhile since i’ve had this problem with anything - but i believe you can right click the program, and say “run as” and type administrator / password into a box. i cannot remember if it is saveable, though.

I’d like a patch so i could execute people in any Sims game :slight_smile:

Create a service to start the sims.
From Command prompt:


sc create "Sims Spoof" binPath= "C:\Program Files\Maxis\The Sims\sims.exe"

Then make the service automatic from within service management console.
