Hello, I have just downloaded CS from the download page and attempted to install. It stucks at the please wait thing after I say yes to the liceance aggrement thingy, which comes after I put the serial key in. I am using Windows 10 and i tried to make it run in the compability mode but it stucks at the same place again. How can I fix this?


Edit: I left it open and after 50-60 minutes later it started the installation. I guess the way to fix it is to wait.

Hello @Unesty,

No, it definitely should not take that long for the installation to start. I am not sure; it could be related to the fact that one should install the old DirectX 9. It does help oftentimes for various issues in The Sims 2.

Another thing you could try is this. Go under Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features -> Turn Windows Features on or off. In the window that comes up check the box named "Legacy components", then click "OK". It may take a while for the changes to be saved, maybe you also need to re-boot after that.

But then try the game again.
