I am trying to install the Sims Deluxe Edition and it gets to about 25% and then it stops. I get the error message that says "the remote procedure call failed". I have no idea what this means. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions please let me know. I would really love to figure this thing out.
Ok the EA site has nothing. Oh what a surprise.. They changed it and it is now very unhelpful. So I googled for a thought. The following error might occur during the file transfer process. This error, which occurs during the file transfer process, is usually specific to how the installation was authored by your software vendor, in which case the vendor would have to debug the issue to determine the cause of the error. One specific situation is related to files that the installation author is attempting to install and register on the target machine. Another situation might occur when the installation author is calling function DLLs during the installation. If the error occurs during initialization, there are a few troubleshooting steps to try to fix the error message. Now here is the link to that helpful thing.. But it is not for the game Sims.. http://consumer.installshield.com/kb.asp?id=Q110644 Is your computer all updated, drivers and all that?
