How to play on Windows

  1. Make sure you have uninstalled all older versions of The Sims 2 games, including registry entries, and make sure there is no “EA Games” folder in your Documents folder (if you do then delete it). Also make sure that you disable your antivirus before installing the game.
  2. Click on the download button and download The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection.rar
  3. Extract the “The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection” folder to your desktop. If you don’t know how to extract files, see this article: https://oldgamesdownload.com/wiki/install-games-on-windows/
  4. Open the folder called “Game Files” found inside of the extracted folder and double click on the Setup.exe file. Click on install and wait for the game to finish installing.
  5. Go into the Redist folder and install “dxwebsetup.exe” by double clicking on it and going through the setup.
  6. There will now be a Sims 2 icon on your desktop! Right click it and select run as administrator to run the game (always run the game as an administrator).
  7. Enjoy the game!

Installation notes:

  • This is a repack of The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection and includes almost all game’s expansion and stuff packs (a few packs are missing such as IKEA Home Stuff)
  • The first time you open the game, it will take some time to start and you might see a black screen for a while. It will also skip the intro video, please be patient, next time it will launch quickly!
  • Change ‘Shadows’ from high to either low or medium through the ingame graphics options , otherwise a black square will appear underneath your Sims instead of indoor shadows…
  • If you can’t change the resolution of the game from 800×600 to another, read ‘Resolution change.txt’ textfile provided in the “Game Files” folder. If they are asking you for administrator permission, then move the file to your desktop, make the changes and then drag it back to its original folder.

  3. Heyy, just wanted to leave a (long) comment here for people who are struggling with the installation process. Especially to those that encountered the persistent “unarc.dll error” or “isdone.dll error” and their variants – basically telling you the files are corrupted.

    Have tried to deal with this issue for several hours, but to no luck. Tried searching around in Sims 2 threads and watching videos specifically to these errors:

    – Long story short, the download link and installation provided here (which is safe BTW!) just conflicts with devices that have updated OS.

    – You can still fix these issues, but it’s a long and arduous process which can be confusing for non-techy people (like myself). Since it’s a problem on a device-to-device basis, there’s no “fix all” solution unfortunately.

    (Solution) I HIGHLY recommend checking out this reddit thread as an alternative to installing Sims 2 if you’re up to it: https://www.reddit.com/r/sims2help/wiki/general-information/

    ^^ I have followed the instructions written here, and Sims 2 has been running smoothly for the past few days!

    Again, there’s no issue with the link provided in this page, just that the process is incompatible to a lot of modern devices – which leads to crashing and install issues.

    Sorry for the wall of text, hope this helped anyone. Enjoy the game!!
