I hope this is the right place..it is Sims related and has to do with my sims downloads

What have I done now..

Ok, I made a mistake when I created a sim..of course  shame

So I downloaded SimPE again..the last time I made a mistake I was able to fix it with SimPE..but this time around ALL of my downloads are coming up DBPF Packages..why

So I uninstalled and did a full search for anything left of SimPE and deleted all that..and I am still getting the DBPF Packages instead of the download..

I think I better restart the computer and come back in maybe that might help..

Be back in a bit  runcircle

This isn't really solved..what I did was do a restore back to yesterday and all my downloads are back..

Not sure what happened but this was the only way that I could do it without going nuts again..sorry I posted this without thinking of doing that restore..first

But if anyone knows what happened I would like to know so I don't do that again..

Also while I am at it..I had the old SimPE..when I went in it kept saying that I needed the new SimPE..but I don't know where that is..does anyone know..

Sorry again... :sunny:

Hello Sam,

Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .package file(s) from the .rar or .zip file

Auto-Installer: extract the installer to your desktop and execute it; all the needed files will be automatically copied in the proper locations.

Manual Install: extract all the files from the zip in a temporary folder on your desktop; read carefully and follow the instructions provided in the TXT file contained in the zip.


which CEP version you have ???

here there is a from march 2009 CEP 2009

I keep my fingers crossed Sam, hopefully everything works :coffee:

Now I have become a little nervous because I had to reinstall Simpe the weekend and now has such files, too, but it has worked in the past so I hold my thumbs to work now. It will soon start my game.


Thank you Crissi for the beautiful signature

Marie don't be nervous..please..this is me..as you know, I know how to really mess things up... shame so don't be nervous just do what you have always done.. and don't think twice about it..if you question yourself you WILL mess up..so don't.. I think we all need a grouphug  :cbs:

Wait I just read your post again Marie..are you saying that your downloads are the same way with the DBPF Packages after installing SimPE..so it may not be just me.. dontgetit


I just took the solved off of the topic..I think this needs to be kept open at least for a bit more..

I agree, Sam. I have not worked in the SimPE or with any sims 2 files for quite a while, and can not offer any advice. But maybe there is yet another sims 2 player out there who might be able to shed more light on this.

It's ok Anita..:summerBa:

I just did my download of SimPE..and put it on my desktop instead of my program files..and it worked.. my downloads are working properly and I can get into SimPE without that stupid popup saying it's not updated..need a updated SimPE..

I think I will leave this open for those of us that have brain farts giggle on what we are doing with the SimPE if that is ok with Staff :Spring2

My game refused to start yesterday and I almost had a panic because I'm CROOK at solving problems on the computer when my English is not the best but after two hours, I managed to figure out that it was my cache files that were filled again, I have to delete them each time. I had found a turiotal on how you did it but it disappeared when I installed on Simpe and then did it even though it is DBPF and it is a Simpe icon for download. If I think of it, it's probably been a long time.
I hope you manage to solve your problems because it is difficult when one's hobby starts to mess with.
