When I tried to install The Sims 2 on my pc while using Windows Vista I had a problem. When the installation reached 1% a message appeared saying: "A problem occured when trying to transfer the file 'F:/Support/es/Leeme.txt' from the media. Do you want to retry to copy the file,or cancel the installation?" and the installation couldn't go on because you had only 2 choices, retry or cancel. The problem actually is with the name of the file. In the cd/dvd the file has the name 'Leéme.txt' but in the installation the file has the name 'Leeme.txt'. What you really have to do is:
1.Open 'My Computer'
2.Right-click on the cd/dvd drive with the game in it and hit Open
3.Copy all the files of the game
4.Go to desktop, right-click and hit New<Folder.Rename the folder Disk 1
5.Paste the files of the game inside the folder
6.Go to Support<es and rename the file 'Leéme' into 'Leeme'
7.Go to Support<sv and rename the file 'läsmig' into 'lasmig'
8.Remove the cd/dvd from the drive
9.Start the installation from Disk 1<AutoRun.exe
The installation should now work properly until the end.
But when you try to run the game a message will appear saying 'This program has known compatibility issues'. Click check for solutions online and then follow the link that appears.This link provides you with a patch for the game!
Hope this information was helpful! Enjoy! Very Happy
