My proposed PC Specifications...

I remember when I got my new PC - Win7, pretty good specs. I was super excited and ready to install Sims2. As I am an old timer my Sims2 discs are the 4cd set. They installed ok into the x86 Program Files, but then - I could not install NightLife or Uni. The PC refused to read the upgrade disk, so it could not install.
I did in fact burst into tears. Here I was, ready to see TS2 in all it's glory - and the damn PC would not let me install it.
I got round it by installing EP's out of sequence - Base then AL then back to NL etc. All's well that ends well, but yea, was a very sad moment at the time.
Re the graphics card - I know that in TS3 you can edit one of the game files to add a graphics card - maybe it is also possible in TS2.
Actually - I have a friend who has just restarted playing sims2 and in the meantime her machine is Windows 7. We went through a lot of those trials together, but she didn't have AL. I've got them all, so I'm going to do what you did!
That's interesting about TS3 and graphics card - I will do a bit of a search on that, because I can't see that it should be TOO different in TS2.
