Default Body Shop will not open at all.
I just received my copy of the Sims 2 Double Deluxe Edition yesterday.
After installing it the first time, the actual game worked fine. I didn't save anything.
I closed out of the actual game and noticed there wasn't a shortcut for Body Shop on my desktop so I went through the start menu to find it. I clicked on it and it just wouldn't open. I even left my computer on overnight to give it time to do so.
I've gone through the FAQ/Walkthrough for solving this problem numerous times, however, being as I hadn't saved or even actually played the game other than just seeing if it loads, none of the specified files to delete were in any of my folders; thus making the FAQ useless to me. I am posting to see if any of you could help me fix this issue.
I've included screenshots to show what I mean better.

After uninstalling and reinstalling the game numerous times only to have the same issue, I looked through each of the folders under
C:\Program Files\EA Games\The Sims 2 Double Deluxe\
, and tested each of the TS2BodyShop.exes there were in the CSBin subfolders .


Folders 'Base', 'EP2', and 'SP4' have both the PackageInstaller.exe and TS2BodyShop.exe, however, only the PackageInstaller seems to work in any of the folders, including 'EP99'.

When I clicked on C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 Double Deluxe\Base\CSBin\TS2BodyShop.exe, I received this error right away.
With the others, I didn't get anything at all; the program simply didn't run.

EP99? What's that? There certainly aren't 99 TS2 EPs...
You'll have to use the Bodyshop file for your latest EP; however if that's supposedly "EP99", then I'm afraid I've no idea what's going on there. :/

I haven't installed any EPs other than what comes with Double Deluxe.
Double Deluxe comes with Nightlife and the Celebration stuff pack.

When you play TS2 now, what's the name of the Sims 2 process in task manager?

I believe that EP99 is the Sims 2 Store Edition, which is the pseudo-EP which EA installs to make sure that all of their downloads will work, no matter what EPs you have.

At this time, it appears that no one here has any ideas. Perhaps you should ask EA how to run Body Shop with the Sims 2 Store Edition.
