i have just bought the sims 2, i loaded all 4 cd's without a problem, and the installation was completed.
when i try to click on the icon to start the game, a small box appears with no writing in, just a red cross, i have no idea why its doing this and would appreciate any suggestions
i can start up the sims body shop with no problem, its just the main application that refuses to work
im running on windows xp
my pc is an Amd 2400 , 256Ram , i have a Gforce 2 graphics card which the game readme says is acceptable, and have just downloaded the recent directx 9.0 patch.
ive tried changing the screen resolutions to see if that helped, but still no success, also disabled my antivirus as someone suggested that may be a cause, but thats not helped either.
does anyone have any suggestions please?
