This user has the following games installed:

Sims 2, University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Free Time, Apartment Life
Default My pc does not want an EP...
Hi! I am trying to install Sims2 after I don't know how many years (pc, windows 10). It works, but when I come to the EP n.8 (Free TIme) I get a message that says that my pc blocked the app for security reasons and I don't know how to solve the problem.
I tried to contac EA Games/Origin and they told me that the game is too old and they cannot help me.

Second problem: my kids lost (again) the cd of the EP n.9 (apartment life). I still have the box and the code, but the cd is missing.
EAGames/Origin told me, again, that it is my problem and they do not have the codes any more.

Can someone help me? Thanks!

Actually my son was able to figure out a fix for the error message for my updated Win 10 pc.
I'll ask him again but I think he enabled "Administrative privileges" and allowed all apps ?

Second problem, you may have to borrow or buy a new disc.
My Uni. disc stopped installing after it installed half way.
It quit at the Voices6.package.
I finally had to order a like new Uni cd to replace it.
Anything for my sims.
Hope that helped.

Could be a problem with SecuRom - Windows 10 doesn't like it, and it's part of all the CDs from Bon Voyage and out, but it could be there's only a reaction to some of the CDs.

There's a tutorial on installing discs on Win10 here (mainly on the "blocked update" issue) - here
A tip on the block issue you seem to have - here
And a couple extra tips on "if all else fails" here.

There are still a few ways you can get the UC, so all hope isn't completely lost if you can't find the AL disc.

in theory I have admin privileges...I will double check...
As for Aparment Life I found it on Amazon but the used CD costs as much as the new one was... I will keep on checking.
Thanks, for now, I will keep you posted!

ok, I tried basically everything and nothing worked
The only good thing is that I found an Apartment Life CD at a human price

ok, husband worked his magic and now it is working. Just I cannot see the CC in the game...yes, I clicked on "show CC at the start", but I do not get anything.
Oh my, why did I forget everything???? Where are the CC supposed to go? in the download file in the base game, right?

Read this, and follow it step by step:

When you're done with that, read either one of these (don't be offended by the titles - I think they're just meant to be like the "*insert theme here* for dummies" books)
* If you feel like you don't have a clue what you're doing -
* If you just need a refresher -
