I tried starting up the Sims 2, I followed the guide and everything, but everytime I tried I just ended up getting the DirectX 9 error. I read on the forum that I should change certain things in Graphics Rules.sgr , but every time I try to save, it says I don't have the authority/permission (I have a Dutch laptop, I don't know how it translates to English) to open the file. 

Here's what it looks like:

so yea what do I do now? 
btw the crack file is in the right location so that can't be it.

Hello and welcome to the Forum,

I suppose the easiest way is for you to right-click on this file and go under "Properties". In the tab that says "general", look down below for a box named "Read-only". Make sure that the box is UNMARKED. See my own example.

Not from the exact same file as yours, but in principle this applies to almost any file. Good luck!
