I have a brand new laptop with Windows 10 and I'm having trouble getting Sims 2 to run on it. I have the ultimate collection through Origin. It installed with no problems, but when I try to run it I get a message that says "Failed to find any DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapters in this system! Please make sure you have a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The application will now terminate." I've tried altering Graphic Rules and Video Cards. I can get it to run in windowed mode, but the window is small and I can't play it that way.
Any suggestions?

You have to go download directx9c end users files from Microsoft. You can have more than one directx on your computer.

No worries! Uninstalled the old one and installed the new one. Still no changes. This is so frustrating.
