Whenever I try to save it says there was an error in saving the house. I also can't figure out how to move my own family in to a house.

What is wrong? Does it have anything to do with my using Vista?

It found a fix for this on Google. You have to run it as administrator to make it work right.

These are the exact steps I took.

Left click on start. On my pc it is in the lower left hand corner.
Left click on all programs and find Maxis.
Right click on Maxis and click expand.
Right click on The Sims and click expand.
Right click on either The Sims...800x600 or The Sims...1027x768 and click run as administrator.

When I didn't do that I couldn't save or move a family I created in to a house. When I ran it as administrator it worked right.

Thanks for posting a fix. UN/reinstalling it works for about two plays, as well.
