daughters birthday today, yay! got her sims2 for the pc! went to install it!
put it in....followed all the 'click next', 'choose language' stuff....and as its whizzing away an error message came up. cannot install this file. gave me the file name and prompted to try again! something about it being a media file?
before i got the game i checked the specs and the pc should be fine. but why wont it install this file?
im not brilliant with computers but i know a little!
any help would be great!
mom in a panick b 4 schools up :(

Try installing it again and give us the error message it comes up with. It could be a faulty disk or it might be your computer.

went to try to install it again for the 6th time so i could get the error message, and it actually worked! i can load it up n everything :)
sorry to bother you all
hope you have a lovely day
not so panicky mom! xx

Didn't expect that. As long as its working then great, could have been something as simple as a mark on the CD.

Glad its sorted.
