Can't install University Life EP on Mac?!?!

Post by toffhy9913 on Thu 07 Mar 2013, 02:49

Alright so I have been trying for so long to install this EP and I have Ultimate Fix. Alright so I download the file, then extracted it using Zipeg. Then I tried to open the installer.exe or whatever, but it came up with a bunch of gibberish and said "This cannot be run in DOS mode." Then I looked on here and found out that you have to used Disk Utility. So I did, created a new image and then double clicked it, then I dragged the extracted University Life file into the white thing but its still telling me that it cant be run in DOS mode? What do I do!?!?!?!

I'd also like to say that there is only one thing in my University Life folder, Sims3EP09Setup.exe (which is what gives me the DOS mode problem when I double click it.)

You have to extract the files from the RAR with Stuffit Expander. Then you have to put all the files into a DMG with Disk Utility application and after you copy all the files there, you have to click on the Installer, not the .exe

I'm also struggling with this. Downloaded torrent, extrated files using UnRarX. I can see the # Crack folder has the installer in but when I click on it the installer doesn't launch. Help please!

It wasn't working for me because I wasn't using Stifflt expander to extract. Try using that.

Yes, with Stufflt it puts everything into one folder. I was using Zinga before and it wasn't doing that.
