Well I'm not testing the new version on my new pc, but that really shouldn't be considered suspicious activity.  Many programs are installed and run at setup, any chat program for instance, any software to control your video card, or anti-virus program.  Find them in the Run folder in your HKCU or HKLM in your registry.  My only beef would be whether or not the program asked you if you wanted this *prior* to doing it.

It doesn't ask at all.

Also, what need what a CC tool have to start at startup anyway?

None.  There is absolutely no need for it to startup, unless it has some other hidden agenda.

well i'm not about to install the new version after what happened with the last fiasco. i am half tempted to, but i think i'd rather go without creating anything for ts3 then have to go through what happened to me the last time i installed the tsr tool.

I've been out of the loop, but isn't Wes still working on his tool?  Or are we in fact stuck with the tsr tool or nothing?

Seems the programmers for the TSR Tool are Mikael Sundberg, Johan Isacsson & Thomas Isacsson or so Sims Design Ave says.

I had their Challenge Wizard installed, but after reading this I promptly uninstalled. Does anyone know for sure whether that particular program is safe or not? Also, what about the lots that come with the challenge. There are some challenges I'd still like to play, even if I have no program to keep track of completed objectives.

Personally, I avoid everything TSR like the plague - just out of principal. Don't know if the TS2 Wizard, or the Challenge Wizard are safe or not, and don't really care. Why should I give TSR the publicity by using their programs- or playing their challenges. There are several challenge groups on Live Journal like Legacy Challenge, Several Yahoo Groups dedicated to Sims 2 challenges and more than 100 challenges listed in the challenges section at MTS- that are actual real challenges like trying to raise 26 kids, or raising 15 generations of a single family, or surviving a zombie apocalypse, or having a family of farmers that live off the proceeds of crops and fishing,  not things like lets see if your Sim can actually reach the top of their career or see cockroaches before they die.

You want challenges? Try keeping ahead of field mice during harvest season when you live in a house with a faulty foundation and an elderly cat that has gone on strike for the season.

Roger. And I am uninstalling all my sims games and stuff packs, and reinstalling (after running a spyware scan) just in case. Didn't really want to reinstall everything again, but I think the challenge wizard borked my AGS (even after reinstalling, I could never get family funds to work on any game created with it, it's been happening ever since I installed the challenge wizard)

New TSR version still wants to launch at Windows startup:


This is the installation protection, which is removed after the installation process is complete.

Believe me. If I find something I will demand for explanations, and if those explanations doesn´t convince me, Thomas and TSR will behave or face a RYG article  Cool

They won´t try anything with their free tools as lons as I am around watching  Grin

TSR now have there own TS3 launcher, allowing installation of Sims3Pack files. It will eventually support direct installation from the TSR site for subscribers only, according to TSR. It is written by jfade so I would assume its safe.

Anything hosted on their site, regardless of who made it, wouldn't ever find its way onto my hard drive. Cheesy Shoot, I don't even trust them enough to visit their website.

Why does that tool make it sound like you can only install on .Sims3Pack at a time? I just installed everything that has been in the store since June 2 the other day, check marked everything and clicked install. Yeah it was a little slow, but I doubt TSR's program is going to make installing any faster.

And for me personally I only will install store stuff with the launcher, that way I can tell it was from the store. I extract the .package files from .Sims3Packs to put in the mods folder, I don't really care it doesn't have a CC symbol, CC in Sims 1 didn't and we lived then, I think people could live now. And really, how hard is it to get up the Mods folder?
