This user has the following games installed:

Default Bodyshop wont start
Hey guys, after many years of break I thought to design some clothes to the sims two, but the sims 2 bodyshop wont start. Is there another version of bodyshop I can download? Because no matter how much i push the bodyshop icon, it just do not want to load the program. Any ideas or suggestion please?

Did you delete the cache files?

There are a few things you can do:
1. Make sure you open the bodyshop of the last EP that you have.
2. Delete the cache files in The Sims 2 folder.
3. Open the Task manager to see if the program is loading. It depends on how fast you pc is, but on my last pc it could take up to 10 or 20 minutes before the program opened and still was loading. But it was already loading in task manager.
4. When opening bodyshop don't do anything else on your pc

My body Shop use to take 40 minutes and looked like it was doing nothing for at least 10, so if you have much cc you need to be very patient. I would open task manager after a few minutes to see if it was working in there, if it was I left it alone.

In the task manager you can see how much RAM a program is using. I think Bodyshop needs +100 (or at least that's what I am waiting for when loading) to know when it's going to start.
As Joandsarah77 said, the more cc, the longer the loading time.

Thanks for the tips guys. I noticed i needed to use that body shop in the EP2 folder , the others do not not work. I have 16 gig ram memory, so it loads quickly, even though i have quite many cc.

Programs>EA Games>M&G>Body Shop. Unless of course you are on the UC, I think it might be Fun with pets folder. That is the path for win 7 anyway, win 10 probably says something else.

No, they're not. Finished files from Bodyshop end up in the SavedSims folder, NOT the project folder.

The files in the project folders are the template for those that end up in SavedSims, but they won't show up ingame, and they lack some important resources.

Also, you need to use the Bodyshop version that came with the latest released EP you have. M&G is considered a mini-EP by the game, so if you have M&G (or Fun with Pets, or the Ultimate Collection), you need to use the M&G Bodyshop version.
