Exclamation Sims 2 H&M Fashion Problem

Well I seem to be having some problems and I'm about to give up. I un-installed and re-installed the game several times trying different methods to get this to work.. I have Expansions: (below)

The Sims 2 (Cd Version)
University
Nightlife
Holiday (Christmas) Party Pack
Open for Business
Family Fun Stuff
Glamour Life Stuff
Pets
Seasons
H&M Fashion

Everytime I try to run H&M Fashion. It gives me this error message. "You are running the wrong version of The Sims 2. Please run The Sims 2 Seasons instead." However when I delete Expansions Pets and Seasons. H&M Fashions run perfectly fine.. So I was wondering what to do?


Also I was wondering, ever since I installed the seasons expansion my resolution is at 800x600.. and it won't let me change it in the menu.. So I was also wondering if this is normal.
Any suggestions. Thanks

Welce

Also In celebration stuff expansion, it gives that problem so you must enter game with seasons.But I don't know why is it.

I can change my resolution in seasons maybe your monitor don't support other
resolutions or other resolution's Hz. but maybe

I wish I could help you

sorry my bad english

Well I found out the resolution problem... It works before the game is patched then after it sets itself to 800x600 so I'm not sure why. but my monitor can go way higher.

I still can't get the H&M fashion expansion to work.. Even when I run it in seasons, it doesn't recognize it. So I'm going crazy.. I really want to play it.

Edit: It does the same with and without..

Since it behaves the same with the original exe i suppose you can ask EA-games support...

The stuff packs are not truly expansions. So they will use exe from the true expansions packs(expansion packs are considered: University, NightLife, Open For Business, Pets and Seasons). The stuff packs are adding just stuff(clothes, furnitures and such). The "stuff" packs are not changing the gameplay and they do not bring some new elements into play.

The problem is quite simple:
The addon h&m fashion includes an update for the seasons game to a newer version, if you now start the game with the cracked addon exe it gives you an error message that the addon exe is not the latest version...cause seasons is now the latest one...
You need a cracked version of the uptated Seasons exe (old one is 1.6, new one is 1.7) to get this working...if u replace the 1.7 version from seasons with the old cracked version from 1.6, i think the game doesnt works correct any longer...
We have to wait, til a cracked version of the latest seasons exe is available...

Hey, I have the same problem, but when I uninstall the seasons and pets expansion packs I am able to play the game with the H&M cd, the reason why we can't play pets and seasons with the H&M cs is because when the stuff pack is installed it also installs the latest patches for seasons and pets, if there is a way to prevent the patches from installing then we will be able to play seasons and pets with the H&M cd.... I've tried just hitting cancel when the patches are being installed but that makes the installation of the whole H&M pack to cancel, so does anybody know a way to prevent the patches from pets and seasons to install and just install the H&M stuff?

BTW, I have the H&M cd but downloaded the other expansion packs....

If u have Seasons or Pets installed, you will never start the game from H&M addon.
The only way to start the game is with seasons or pets, and using an image file and latest yasu tool. (til a new cracked version of the updated .exe is available)
The celeb and H&M stuff is already available, and the game is running perfect without any crash or error...
