Help with Sims File Maid 2...?

Hey everyone! I just downloaded the Sims File Maid 2 to manage my added junk I plan to put to use for my Sims 2 game. c: However, I am having some trouble, in the fact that I cannot click and drag any of the downloaded files onto the lawn. :/ I was under the impression that was how it all worked, but I get a little cross-out sign in place of my cursor instead. If anyone out there is familiar with this program, help or advice would be greatly appreciated! I've tried consulting the FAQ's on the website where you download the program, but I haven't yielded anything yet... :(

I believe it doesn't work with Windows Vista. And people have been reporting problems with it in XP as well. I don't know anyone that actually uses that program any more.

Why not put the .package files into the Downloads folder manually (ie. copy and paste or unzip/unrar straight into there) and use the Clean Installer to install Sims2Pack files?

The funny thing is, I had to create a download folder in my Sims 2 file, and there's nothing in it to open the files with :(

What do you mean there's nothing in it to open the files with??

You need to get WinRar and CleanInstaller. After installing WinRarand Clean Installer, download files straight to the folder where you intend to keep them, right click, and the option to unrar them should pop up. After unrar-ing, right click and choose "Open With Clean Installer".

Ok, I will try this. :3 Generally, I'm pretty computer savvy, but sometimes I get a bit clueless, lol. Like with things like this.

Where did you create this folder? And what sims2 file? Or do you mean folder? Of course there in nothing in the folder. You just made it...

I can't link to it right now because I'm on the iPhone but why don't you google "downloading for fracking idiots"? I am not insulting you, that is the title of the tutorial that you need to read in order to learn more about how to make custom content work in your game.

Lol, no insult felt. I've heard of that guide and even chuckled a bit when I first read it.
