    Your entire problem is caused by FreeSO not being able to find XAudio .dll's. All that is needed is for you to reinstall/install all optional DirectX 9.0c components. In Google, search for "directx web installer", it should be the first search result. Proceed to download and install DirectX. FreeSO should launch correctly with no errors at all! (hopefully) :p

    I Installed OpenGL and OpenAL and NET Framework
    I updated my Drivers and installed The Microsoft Visual C++ for 32bit
    I am trying everything several times I have installed and reinstalled a doz times.
    every time I change something I just keep getting different errors.
    Seems the only thing left for me too do is get windows 10 because freeso doesn't like windows 7 at all.

    Turns out the game will run some on my old labtop... I can get into freeso.ml I just have to wait a very long time for the lot to load. search option works very slow but I cant get into empty lot at all.

    I can now get onto empty lot I zoom in all the way and then click over and over until it works. finally building my house woohoo

    Being unable to process information in a specific form (like text) is not uncommon, actually. It is just rarely accommodated. It is great of you to do it!

    I tried to install Freeso but the WinZip box came up. It said that my trial has run out and I have to buy WinZip. Do I have to buy WinZip to install it? Plus, I installed the old Sims Online CD's that I bought years ago. Will that one work?

    Get rid of WinZip and download 7-Zip (completely free) it has no trial. If you are installing The Sims 1 on Windows 10 you have to get past the SecuROM protection (DRM). For the Sims online you will need to download the installer (since FreeSO uses a specific version I think) from EA's servers since they provide the latest (and last) updates for The Sims Online. (You could try to install the game from your CD's, it may work but I don't know.)

    I deleted the WinZip. That is fine. I installed the 7-zip and that is now done.
    I installed the Freeso. When I clicked the Freeso short cut to start the game, all it showed me was the exception box. I found the freeso.exe was not install. So I deleted the Freeso folder so I can redownload the Freeso program. When I click install freeso, all it is doing "now" is giving me a documents folder. Not the download program. The download is from freeso.net.
    Can you give me step by step instructions and the links so I can download the program?

    A very big thanks goes to xXJDrocksXx, he has made a universal installer that gives you the option to install either the GS (Global Server) client or the Legacy Client! :eek:
    The link to the download is right here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m0lh70eq8s1op1l/FreeSO Installer.zip?dl=0
    If Dropbox asks you to sign-in, you don't have to just press the tiny "X" in the top right hand corner of the window.

    Once into the installer (after extracting it with 7-Zip/Winrar) you run the "FreeSO Installer.exe". It is completely up to you whether you don't mind waiting for the GS to be up or if you want to reminisce in single player. Just select either the "Legacy" or "Global Server" option.

    Right now the Global Server is not up yet, neither registrations or donations will be accepted yet until Rhys says so.

    I'm trying to download the game but for some reason I cannot extract the dist files into the TSOclient files.
    Also, when I click on the link to download the extra packing slips, it doesn't download... Could someone help me please?

    Dont use WinRar to extract .zip files into system protected areas. But you are using the legacy version switch to the Global Server version unless if you really want to play offline by yourself. Just download the FreeSO installer from: https://freeso.net/

    When installing using the installer make sure that you select either the "Global Server Edition" or "Legacy Edition" :)
