Sorry this update took so long. I had the same problem a lot of you are having and it seems to have mostly been a Firefox and .RAR bug. I wanted to test this maid thoroughly before I posted it.

Version 1.2.50727

Fixes in this release
--------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
Improved error handling.... kinda, nothing specific
Program can be closed, without using Task Manager, after encountering an error
Individual user settings are saved, not global (also fixes all users have same download directory)
Fixed the maid extracting "0" files (blame my husband for that one!!)
Better .RAR handling


Known Issues
--------------------------------------
--------------------------------------
Program may not startup - End Task in task manager and try again until I get to the root of the problem
Program has to be restarted if an error is encountered
Directory Monitoring may not work when downloading files from FireFox
--------------------------------------
--------------------------------------


New Release 1.1.619.... There's a new tool out, Sims 2 RoboFileMaid 3000. It's similar to Sims File Maid 2, but expands greatly on the functionality and has a prettier user interface.

Unfortunately not very many things do. If I were familiar with programming for Mac I would do it.

Do you have permission to repost this? What if there are updates? Are you going to keep up with this and replace the files? It wouldn't be good to have outdated files lingering around. Please make sure you have permission to repost this or I'll have to remove the attachments.

My sincere apologizes! Then you have all the permission in the world. Sorry for jumping to conclusions. Just lately there was a rash of repostings of content from other sites and your description was rather vague that you were the co-creator.

It doesn't work for me, this pop-up says: To run this application, you must first install one of the following versions of the .Net Framework: v2.0.50727

How do I avoid this?

Ivan, this program requires .net framework v2 to run. There's a link to the microsoft site at neoscrib.com.

I for one love sims2 file maid. I'm going to try this and see if I like it any better than the other program. If I do I'll be changing my sig, lol

I love Sims file maid too and recomend it to many people. I'm looking forward to trying this baby out thanx.
daysies- I totally see where you were coming from, there has been many many theives lately posting mods from other sites and having to have their threads locked. It really is stupid and a waste of everyones time including their own. I'm glad this program is legit. Thankyou mstybl95 & your hubby for making it......it is very pretty :-)

we actually created it because my file maid kept giving me errors for things that had no errors. originally, we weren't going to post it, but after my hubby tinkered with it and gave it all these different features i just had to share. the part i love most is that she gets rid of everything when she's done installing the files.
