- The Sims2Pack is released under the GNU General Public License.

To install, just download Sims2PackInstaller.zip and unzip it. Run the installation EXE from the unzipped location.

I have included the source code for the latest version in Sims2PackInstallerSource.zip. There is no need to download this file unless you are a C# programmer who wishes to look at or modify the code.
Please report any problems with this new version in the Sims2Pack forum. Be sure to mention which version you are using.
How To Help:
The most important thing is to let me know if you have any problems. I have a limited ability to do testing, so I'm hoping that people will tell me when things go wrong.
Specifically, if you notice that a piece of CC is incorrectly identified, or has other incorrect information, please let me know. If possible, a copy of the CC (or a link to the download) may help me to find the bug.

Sharing, Requests, Help
Please do not share my programs, lots, or neighborhoods without my permission. Instead, please direct people to the latest release on this website.
Feel free to share my mods, but be sure to give people a link to the download thread here, just in case there are any future fixes.
The source code for most of my programs is available in the download thread. If I am inactive on ModTheSims for a year, or if I die, you may take over development and support of any of my programs without my permission, but the program must remain free of cost and you must keep the source code in the public domain.

For help with any of my tools, please post in the appropriate download thread.

I will delete such requests without responding. Please see rule #5 here for details: http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=135664
