My SO wants Sims 2 on their laptop (which I have done before, they had to get a new hard drive recently) so I downloaded the Ultimate Collection from my Origin account. I get a "No directx 9.0 compatible drivers found" error. They have Directx 12 on an Intel e5800 graphics card. I have tried:

- Downloading and running the dxwebsetup from Microsoft and letting it install and then restarting.

- Using the Graphics rules maker which literally did absolutely nothing

- Starting the game from the most recent game .exe in Windows XP service pack 3 compatibility mode and then service pack 2 compatibility mode

- Following the leefish guide to replace graphics rules with hers in Config and CSConfig in my most recent game's TSdata folder

The only way to get it to start is to put -w at the end.  They're on the cusp of being legally blind and I am legally blind so it's very hard to play this way.



Please help me out!

I'm pretty sure it's this one. I've also tried downloading the Microsoft Direct X tool and the June 2010 Microsoft files with the Direct X set up and it didn't fix the problem.
