Hey all,

 I recently downloaded the sims 1 from here. I followed the instructions and step 1 is to open start.exe. Sadly, no matter how many times I try, nothing happens when I do it. What do I have to do to install the game?

Hello and welcome to the Forum,


You could right-click on the "Sims.exe" and choose "run as Administrator".

Another idea:


The sims 1 - start.exe. Clipbo10




Go to Control Panel -> Programs -> Programs and Features -> Turn Windows features on or off. In the next window, unfold the "Legacy components"-folder, and MARK the box "Direct Play". Click on OK after that.


That's all I can say for now - good luck ! Smile

P.S. sorry for the belated reply; I myself don't post 'regularly' anymore these days, or at least less regularly than I used to...  Talk to my left hand

I have this same problem and have tried that, but it was already marked. Any other tips? I tried the run as administrator and compatibility mode too.

I actually re-downloaded this thing and re-installed. Worked on the very first attempt.

Can you tell me the filesize of your "Sims.exe" that is located in the install directory (after copying the file from the #Crack folder)? On my end it is 2.90MB. Even so, you could try adding the install path of the game to the exclusions in your antivirus, and Windows 10 Defender. 

How to turn off Windows Defender on Windows 10:

If you have Windows 7 or 8(.1), I believe you can turn it off manually, directly from the program. 

After that, re-copy and re-paste the #Crack-file, into your install directory of the game, and overwrite the existing file of course. Maybe that could work.  Yess, aye lieeke!
