so i have "The Sims", the original one that came out in the late 90's i believe, i played it back then and enjoyed it and just found the CD again while cleaning
so i thought i would try it out again, i loaded it onto a computer with windows vista, when i double click the icon to play the game the welcome screen appears with a few options, i click on "play"....right after i do that i get a popup saying "the sims has stopped working, windows is checking for a solution to the problem"
if this game played fine way back then on a windows 98 computer, why won't it play on my vista computer?
it can not be a display issue because i am using the "old style" projection type monitor on both machines,
second question is......
i want to try to load this game on a laptop, but the laptop has no CD drive, is it possible to copy the installation CD contents to a USB drive and install it that way on the laptop???
