    Missing Data Directory

    Not played the sims:superstar for a while, no files changed, taken away or anything. when i start up it goes to the splash screen then i get a "Fatal Error" saying: "Could not find The Sims data directory"

    i do not want to re-install coz it jus takes too long. i own legit copies of all the expansions, along with the original.

    is the shortcut your using right? check the path and make sure it points towards the sims directory and game .exe

    the shortcut points to:
    C:\Program Files\The Sims\Sims.exe
    right where its supposed 2 be, i get the same error with the autoplay screen aswell
    could it be a registry problem?

    is there anyway i could combine all of the expansion packs in to one installation file. it would save alot of time when installing or re-installing
