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:

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

- 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

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:

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:

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.

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.

Update: I think the problem is that this file has a low reputation with Norton, so it gets deleted as a potential threat. I know this file is a few years old; can someone please confirm that it is safe? I can probably set it as an exception, but I don't like disagreeing with Norton (it's usually right!).
