Hello everyone. wave

I recently (re)purchased The Sims 2 and tried to install it, but when I try to install University it says it will check to make sure the installation is up to date. *Please note I am using regular 'ol The Sims 2, NOT Double Deluxe or the Ultimate Collection.* So, it says to insert disk number 4, and I do. It updates normally and then says that the update has failed, and then installation terminates. I'm using a Windows 10 computer, fully updated. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

This should help you with installing the patches, Grumpy Loader seems to be the only way to get them working on Windows 8 and 10.

Thank you for the link, I've checked it out and am following the guide - so far it seems to be working. I'll update if I have anymore issues.


The Sims 2 is fully downloaded and the game(s) work just fine.
