Sims 2 not installing on Windows 7

★★★ Newbie

Hey there,


I've finally decided to install The Sims 2 on my new Windows 7 new laptop, but it won't install.  At 1% this message comes up: An error occured when trying to transfer the file D:/Support/es/Leeme.txt from the media and then asks me to retry installation, but it still won't work.  What do I do?


Thanks in advance for any help.

Are you installing from disc? If yes, try to redeem your Sims 2 games in Origin and then download and install them from there. Given that the previous owner hasn't already done that.


Read here how to do that:
