Error when trying to update game

Post by Emilyzabeth on Sat 02 Mar 2013, 00:54

So i've never had a problem with updating manually until after I got mods and at first when I tried to update I remembered after I got the error that I forgot to remove the mods folder (in Documents)
So I deleted the Mods folder and that still didn't work so I deleted all the folders in the Documents Sims 3 folder and moved it to my desktop and I'm still getting this error with the installer loading halfway then disappearing?



I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Try re-downloading the file, then restarting your computer and running the file as soon as you can, before even opening any other programs.

Hello,

Is this the error you get when you use the manual patch?
If yes, please re-download it from step 2, using a different browser and avoiding the use of a download manager: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
