Vista = no cheat window!!

Vista = no cheat window!!

I just bought a new HP laptop to replace my other laptop. This new obviously has higher specs and all. I installed my Sims game just like I had installed to my previous laptop(same disk and everything) it works great even faster but when I tried to Ctrl +Shift+C for a cheat nothing happened!!
Is there some other way to do it? I already tried uninstalling and installing again.

Try pressing control and shift buttons first at the same time, then press c button while still holding the other two buttons.

Did this cheat code work for you????

I have a hp laptop with vista, and the cheat works just fine. What I have noticed is that sometimes the cheat window collapses. You can drag the edge of the cheat window to make it expand and collapse. Try the Ctrl + Shift + C again, and even though you don't see the cheat window, try typing expand.

Okay, I have A vista laptop and it wouldn't work for me either until someone told me to hold down the vista icon that's next to the alt button at the bottom of the keyboard.

Hope This Helps!

I had the same problem with my vista laptop but then I found out what to do. Instead of typing in ctrl+shift+c you have to type in ctrl+window+shift+c. The window button should be a flag. Hope it works for you!
