  1. Whenever I try to play The Sims 2 Apartment life, I get this error message:

    Failed to enumerate any DirectX 9 compatible graphics adapters in this system!

    Please make sure you have a DirectX 9 compatible graphics adapter and have installed the lates manufacturer provided driver.

    The application will now terminate...

    I was able to play all of my Sims 2 Expansion packs until I installed The Sims 2 Apartment Life. Here are the expansion packs that I have besides Apartment Life:

    The Sims 2 Open For Business
    The Sims 2 Pets
    The Sims 2 University
    The Sims 2 Freetime

    Here are my computer specifications from dxdiag:
