  1. :( Hi,

    I was having problems starting The Sims on my PC, so I did a manual uninstall with the directions from the EA support website*. After the uninstall I tried on reinstall the game but I got an error message saying:

    Error Number: 0x80070725
    Description: Incompatible version of the RPC stub.

    Setup will now terminate.
    Any suggestions?
