    Manual Install

    I know this is kind of late, but... I have run into this problem before. Perhaps this will help you.

    First, create a new folder on your desktop and label it Sims 2 Deluxe.

    Put your Sims 2 Deluxe DVD into your DVD drive. Go to my computer, go to your DVD drive, right click and hit open. Click on one folder, then Ctrl-A to highlight all the folders there, then Ctrl-C to copy all of the folders. Paste them into the Sims 2 Deluxe folder you created on your desktop.

    Open the folder, and you'll see the autorun icon. Double click on it and your install screen should pop up.

    You might want to leave the folder on your desktop in case you ever need to reinstall it; I know I've had to reinstall mine several times because of errors.

    You also might want to make sure your video card is compatible with the game. Mine isn't and I was able to play it anyways, but I'm forever having problems and having to reinstall my game.

    I hope this helps! I know what its like to want to play the Sims!!!
