Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Sims2Pack Clean Installer is a tool for Sims 2 and all people who download a lot of custom content. S2PCI can be used to categorize, catalog or remove that content. It will also help you in installing your files. You will be able to preview some content before installing. It has built in unrar and unzip routines, as well as possibility of installing dozens of files with single click.

For more information, please see the official website at:
http://sims2pack.modthesims2.com/

The newest version recognizes 64-bit and the Ultimate Collection, thanks to abluescarab.

Requirements:
- The Sims2Pack Clean Installer is released under the GNU General Public License.
- The program uses some DLLs from Datgen and SimPE; they are included in the installation.
- You need the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down...s.aspx?id=20137

Installation:
To install, just download Sims2PackInstaller.zip and unzip it. Run the installation EXE from the unzipped location.

If you would prefer a no-install version, download Sims2PackInstaller_NoInstall.zip and extract everything. You will have to set the file associations yourself. Here's a brief explanation of how to set up the no-install version:

To have the Sims2Pack Clean Installer install your CC into a non-default location, here are some suggestions:

If you always want to have the Sims2Pack Clean Installer install your CC into a non-default location, please see this post:

For multi-install, please see this post:
http://www.modthesims.info/showpost...2&postcount=203

I have included the source code for the latest version in Sims2PackInstallerSource.zip. There is no need to download this file unless you are a C# programmer who wishes to look at or modify the code.

Please report any problems with this new version in the Sims2Pack Clean Installer forum. Be sure to mention which version you are using.

To-Do List:

How To Help:
The most important thing is to let me know if you have any problems. I have a limited ability to do testing, so I'm hoping that people will tell me when things go wrong.

Specifically, if you notice that a piece of CC is incorrectly identified, or has other incorrect information, please let me know. If possible, a copy of the CC (or a link to the download) may help me to find the bug.

Does this installer also let me know if I have broken objects that are causing my game to crash? Is there a program that does that? Maybe like missing meshes, etc?

I am in need of assistance - I haven't updated my Clean Installer since version 1.6.11.0 (yeah I know) and now that I am ready to join everyone else and get up to date I am unable to uninstall the old version. There doesn't appear to be an uninstaller - it doesn't show up in my programs and features where you go to uninstall, but the files in my program files - it's been six years but I know that I didn't do a manual install. I have no idea what to do now. Thanks in advance for your help.

For me the program automatically detects that I already have the Clean Installer installed. So I just run the installer and it'll tell me that it detected another version of the Clean Installer and will uninstall that first.

That's about all I can tell you do. IF programmers would like to to improve this for compatibility issues for future Operating systems be my guess I am sure Mootilda would had liked someone to continue her work

For those who do not know Mootilda passed away a few years ago from cancer.

Sims2Pack Clean Installer is causing an unusual problem for me. My OS is Win7.
When this program is installed, it won't let me burn CD's.
Here's a pic of when I try to burn some MP3 data CD's by dragging folders onto my "D" drive, which contains a blank CD ready for burning:



Note the two Sims2Pack Clean Installer windows that pop up that prevent me from continuing with the burn procedure.
Any suggestions?

Do you have instructions for what and how to use this mod? I installed, loaded my mods but I see no install like on the pics, just the files plus a whole lot highlighted light or dark red and I don't know what it means.

I can't install this - when I unzip the file, it appears in the unzipped location for a second and then disappears. Does anyone know what to do? Thanks!
