So... I'm another person here with issues running Sims 2 Glare
I recently had to uninstall my game due to corruption (saved while a sim was on the phone), and had to reinstall. Had managed to find a fix to running Sims 2 on my laptop before, but cannot find anything now that works. I installed the Directx 9.0c files, do I have to put them into my game? Would appreciate help, sims 4 hasn't filled the void Undecided

OS: Windows 10

Note- My game STILL seems to be corrupted. I haven't played a game yet to see the symptoms, but all my custom hoods are still there along with families.

DX9 won't work on a Win10 system. And DX12 is incapable of performing the DX9 functions. You need DX11, and even that is no guarantee that it will actually work.

Shoot. How do I get Dx 11, and install it?

You can download it from here:
https://directx-11.en.lo4d.com/download

And just run the install.

This might be a silly question, but will downloading Directx11 get rid of my current version of Directx?

Also, still getting the DirectX error.

No, and your issue, is Windows 10. It's a very hostile, Sims 2 environment. I keep several ThinkPads around, with Win7Pro, so I can play older games like TS2.
