Does the sims 2 ultimate collection work for windows 8? It doesn't work when I download it

Today I found out that they were putting sims 2 ultimate collection for free on origin and I was wondering if it would work on my windows 8 computer? I tried downloading it but this message keeps coming up when I entered the code and when I pressed download it wouldn’t download, the message says (we’ve encounter a problem) An unexpected error has occurred. Please try again in a few moments but I tried again and again and I even restarted my computer but nothing seems to work. What should I do?

I fixed everything, what I had to do was reset my computer since my game never was able to dowload since it kept saying error and after resetting my computer I downloaded origin again and I went to sims 2 and it finally worked when I downloaded it and it only took an hour to dowload and I'm now going into game and it's fine

There is a fix for crashes on the game, it's a problem with Integrated Graphics, if you have a NVIDIA there's a solution :

When you are in "Manage 3D settings" thing, and if you can't find the Ultimate Collection shortcut, click on "Add" (in the right side of the list) and go in :

C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection\Fun with Pets\SP9\TSBin

You will find an application named "Sims2EP9.exe", choose this application and then keep following the tutorial Standard smile

Please be patient on the first start. I can take up to 20 min to start.
