The Sims 3 doesn't pass windows xp logo testing.

So I have win xp sp 2 and want to install sims 3 (I know it's 5 years late but whatever). But when I instapp it a message says "the software you're installing has not passed windows logo testing, to verify its compability on windows xp"
If I click continue, the software finish installing, but it won't open the app. I tried disabling on my computer > properties > hardware and reinstalling but the message still pops out. Any help?

It would help your cause if you had SP3 installed.

In any case have you tried installing it using compatibility mode for XP?

Edit: also check the system requirements to ensure your hardware is up to scratch.

When's the last time you ran Windows Update? My guess is your computer is seriously behind in terms of updates & security fixes. You didn't do your system any favors by not installing SP3.
