Hi,

I've got a little and simple problem when i try to launch the Legacy BS: the program doesn't start and i've an error message ("Can't rename the folders inside "(Documents)\EA Games".
Be sure that ALL the windows are closed, including
the DOWNLOADS folder, and that there is no other
program that is accessing files within the
the EA Games folder (including BodyShop and HomeCrafter).
If you need help, visit http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=107015")

I can confirm that all my windows / programs are closed. There are 5 folders in my EA games folder: The sims 2, SimPE backup, The sims 2 Bodyshop, Basegamestater, and the sims 2 LBS.

Can you tell me what's wrong please? Thx

Apparently, nothing... Please post in the BaseGameStarter thread, attaching the zip of the entire "BaseGameStarter" folder, and I will take a look.

But sometimes - and I don't know why - the folders can't be renamed because of a Windows program that isn't visible, but still doesn't release the folders, preventing a correct renaming.
Restarting Windows is the only solution, in this case...

I've finally started my Journal. Information only, no questions.

Lastrie, one of the folders in my pets directory was 'read only' - I changed the setting on that folder and that is how I got my legacy bodyshop to run. Maybe that's the problem on your system also.

Okay, when I double-clicked my LBS, nothing comes up, that means, the program doesn't start itself!! Why?!?! I don't see it in my Task Manager as well, please help!!

P/s: I have the same problem like lastrie, except it doesn't show any error message, just.. nothing happens.. (there was a log running under the taskbar though but it disappeared in 10 secs!!)

It's "gilysse" with a small "g"..

Sorry but I am no longer open for suggestions.

check if any of your sims folders are read-write protected. That's what prevented mine from running, there was a folder that couldn't be renamed. I fixed the protection and everything started working.

I know this seems like a pretty dead thread, but I have a question regarding this. I've installed seasons since then (and soon Bon Voyage), and I was wondering if that would have solved the problem? I'm on a mac, so everything seems to be much more difficult.

But you are my love, the astronaut,
Flying in the face of science.
I would gladly stay an afterthought,
Just bring back some nice reminders.
