HELP, Installed expansion packs & the main game disappear. [SOLVED]

Post by windkeith on Sat 02 Mar 2013, 12:32

Please help, as shown below the main game version became 0.0.0.0 and cannot start the game ever since the expansion packs installed.
As you can see the icon also not shown as the latest expansion pack that I installed.

Hello,

This should fix your problem: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
DO NOT skip any steps and RE-DOWNLOAD both the manual patch and the Ultimate Fix.

Good luck!

;)Thx man, I will give a try.
Just want to makesure one thing, do I need to follow the "# Installation Guide.txt" in each of the expansions, e.g. change the SKU? or I just install them stright away as the First step said " Install The Sims 3 and all expansions you like..."?

Hello,

Only install the expansion packs. For World Adventures you should probably change the SKU value, yes.
