Yes, it's confusing, but I can't even open the program. Each time I try, I receive a message that says: Sims2Pack Clean Installer has stopped working. I'm not provided with any other information. The program just won't open.

I have tried the uninstall/re-install solution with no change. It installed easily and removed easily.

I also tried the non-install way, but that didn't work either.

I have a folder in my downloads folder where all my lots are. The major problem is that Clean Installer won't install (or even look at) any lots. I managed to install most of my downloads folder thanks to 'Install All', but it won't work at all for my lots.

I have no idea what to do next.

Which operating system are you using? 32-bit or 64-bit? Have you got .NET installed and working correctly?

Can you explain exactly what you did to get the no-install version working? Where did you copy the files onto your hard drive? Did you extract all of the files? How are you attempting to run the Clean Installer?

I'm using Windows 7 with 64-bit. .Net is installed and working fine.

I couldn't get the no-install to work. I followed the instructions on what to do. After I unzipped the files, I put them on desktop for easy access. Everything was extracted from the folder.

Unfortunately, if I try to open the Sims2PackCleanInstaller.exe, it won't open. It also won't open if I try to install any lots. I'll just receive the 'Sims2Pack Clean Installer has stopped working' message.

Are you running as an administrator on your computer?

Yes, I'm administrator. It asks for permission before trying to run the program and I always click yes. Problem is that the minute I do, the program stops working.

At this point, I'm stumped. I gather that there's no way for you to get any additional information about the error? The only thing that I can think of is to create a debug version which will print out messages about how far it's getting. That would give us an idea of where it's failing.

Have you tried the older version 1.5.1.4, which worked for so long?
