while doing some cleaning, I recently found my old Sims CD ,
it is the original Sims game from maybe late 1990's? (just my estimate)
i have not played it in over 10 years,
i thought what the heck, try it out again,
loaded it onto my windows Vista computer (fresh install)
when i try to start the game two things happen,
i get a popup in my taskbar by the clock that says "the color scheme has been changed to windows vista basic"
immediately after that i get a popup that says "The Sims has stopped working, windows is checking for a solution to the problem"
this popup comes up immediately, it doesn't even load the welcome page for the game,
i have uninstalled and re-installed the game, same thing,
when i bought this game new i believe i played it on a windows 98 computer with a max of 500mb RAM, so i am confident my current system with 4GB ram exceeds the minimum requirements,
EDIT:::: i also tried the game in safe mode, same thing happens
