Sims Game Start brings up Printer Software?

  Tony_B 22:34 10 May 2005

I recently installed a copy of Sims Deluxe on my girlfriends computer. Using the screen that comes up to allow installation proved useless, everytime I clicked 'Install' the computer brought up a new window for the scanning option of the Epsom 420 multi-function.

I eventually installed the game by accessing the internal files and hitting setup.

Once installed I added Sims dating on to the original package. I had the same trouble with the install buttom and used the setup icon in the game files.

Everything installed ok, and I tested the game and it opened fine.

Now when you hit game start icon in the programs menue the printer scanner software starts.

What is going on here? I assume that the link for the start and install buttons was incorrect, but I don't know how to correct this.

Any Idea's?

First right click on the icon and select properties and see what software it points to. If it is wrong change the path to the game exe instead.
