The Sims (1) on Holiday - disk won't install

vbimport

#1

I’ve been given a load of Sims disks and am trying to install On Holiday, but my machine is having trouble (I’ve already installed The Sims, with no problem, and it runs fine). It can read the disk, asked me if I wanted to install the game but then just whirred around for a bit and then stopped. I’ve put compatibility to 98, I’ve ‘opened’ the disk and double clicked on setup.ini, autorun.inf and start.exe. The same thing happens.

Any ideas on how I can get this to run? Thanks.

Which OS are you using ?

You can try to copy the content of the CD to HDD and try to run the setup from there.

No error message, nothing. Just my cursor doing the whirry thing and then it stops. Running Windows 7, but the compatibility is set to 98 so shouldn’t be a problem (did the same with The Sims and it’s OK).

Since then I have switched off my firewall and tried again. Still no luck.

Copied to HDD, still no luck.:frowning:
