  1. Ok so previously I downloaded a torrented version, of all the expansion packs including the base game, for University, it gets to 75% and then come up with the message,

    "A problem occurred when trying to transfer the file 'E:\TSBin\Sims2EP1.exe' from the media.

    Do you want to retry to copy the file or cancel the installation?"

    This happened with the Torrent version, so I gave in and went and bought them for pennies... When it arrived this morning I Installed the base game with a few exp. included, then went to install University again and the same message came up as like on the torrent install.

    I thought this would sort it out, Please help as would like to get playing today,

    Thanks in advance.

    "My' problem was that I downloaded' the DVD patch to Sims2 - when in reality, I had the CD version - there are 2 patches' - pick the right one."

    Quote from a another website.

    Hope this helps.

    I do not actually own the sims 2, im just reading other forums with people with a similar problem to yourself.

    The fix I posted applies to the original version and not the pirate one, Im presuming there are 2 versions of a patch, one for the dvd version and one for the cd version.

    Installing the wrong patch version seems to cause the problem you have.

    Sorry I cant be more precise, I have no idea of the install order, or patches required.
