Ok I did for the first time installed The Sims 2 game and I did install the latest patch for it. But I have a problem I got an error message saying this. I do have directX 9.0c installed already and all of the Windows updates and driver updated.
"Failed to find any DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapters in this system! Please make sure you have a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The application will now terminate."
I did some reasearch and my Intel video chip and this is what it says.
"The Intel® 82810 and 82815 graphics controllers are compatible with versions of Microsoft* DirectX* up to 9.0 with version 6.7 of the graphics drivers. Not all of the new features of DirectX 9.0 are supported, however. They are also compatible with previous version of DirectX (8.x, 7.x, 6.x and 5.x)."
