How can I play The Sims on PC?

In the Preparing for Teens quest, I was asked to play The Sims on a PC. I tried letting my sims play SimCity on the laptop but it didn't work? How can I do this?

I have this problem too. I doesnt want your Sims to play sims on a PC. I even tried buying a more expensive computer instead of laptop and it still wont work.
I think it wants you to play it on a PC. But you can't do that when you are playing freeplay on an ipad for example....It wont even let me skip the goal. Any ideas?

To complete this task your sims only needs a computer and you click play the Sims. I was confused at first too but then I watched a video tutorial and it said to do that. Hope this helped!

I can't get it to work. I bought a better computer, I made sure it was an Adult who was playing even the parent of the toddler. I've done it 4 times and still nothing. Sims you need to fix your game because I'm sick of the glitches and I'm getting ready uninstall
