[The Sims 2] Compatibility with Windows 8/10

★★★ Newbie

i just got a new laptop recently and decided to install my sims 2 game and a few of my expansions because i havent played in ages. sims2 (original) installed easily, but every expansion i've tried to install has crashed after i put in disc 4 of sims 2. i then decided to just play the original version without any of the extras and got told that i couldnt play it due to compatibility issues :\ is there any way i could fix this and continue to play sims 2 on my new computer?
