When I try to start the game, the following message comes up:

"Failed to enumerate any DirectX 9 compatible graphics adapters in this system!

Please make sure you have a DirextX 9 compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest manufacturer provided driver.

The application will now terminate..."

I have dirext x 10 installed... can anyone help?

I had the same problem when I tried to run the game right from the .exe. When I use the launcher it works fine.

If that doesn't help, have you tried updating the drivers for your graphics card? You can also googling the error message to get a ton of suggestions.

My drivers are up to date (though my graphics card stinks...), I have 2gigs of RAM and 448mb of video RAM.

When I tried searching, all it came up with was with others bemoaning the problem with no actual solutions >.<

Seems like you have an onboard video card, what kind is it?

Are you executing your game from "...EA Games\The Sims 2 Apartment Life\TSBin"?
