    "The Sims Complete Collection" problem-DESPERATE!!

    I bought the complete collection a little while ago happy because I am all about the first sims...no problems installing. it went well, however when I went to play it, it crashed and I got the "The Sims complete collection has stopped working, windows is looking for a solution for the problem" and of course, it doesn't find one. I have uninstalled it and re-installed it at no avail to get around the problem. Any advice would be fantastic, thanks in advance

    Hello emhenson08,
    Try the game in compatibility mode, XP will be the best option here, and run as administrator.

    Compatibility Mode

    Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.
