problem during set up

Post by ellie555 on Fri 17 May 2013, 16:51

Hello everyone! I am extremely new to all this online game-downloading so I apologise in advance since my questions might be stupid! I downloaded yesterday Sims 3 University life! I extracted the Simssetup.exe but when I try to run the set up a window pops up with a red X and some weird numbers and codes! I honestly have no idea from these staff! can you help me?
Thank you

Hello there,

Did you use "WinRAR" for extracting the contents of that .RAR file ? With WinRAR open the .RAR file and select "Extract to". Now you have to select a location for extracting all the contents of the .RAR file.

After extraction use the "setup.exe", or whatever it's called
Wink.

What you just described is exactly what I did! I extracted the setup.exe and when I double-clicked in order to start the installation this window popped!

OK, so you made sure to extract all files in the .RAR (not just the setup.exe) ? Maybe your download is corrupted..
What exactly does the error window say ?

//EDIT

Try also this: select "extract to" and in the options on the left mark the option "keep broken files". Now try extracting again.

Alright, I'm not quite sure if you did that, but..open Win RAR again, select "File", then "Select all". Now all files in the .RAR are "marked". Now you can either drag the contents out with your mouse cursor, or you use the "Extract to" option. Keep in mind that you want to extract ALL files of the .RAR (for example, to a folder on your desktop). Again, don't forget to do what I suggested above (the thing with the "keep broken files") Wink.

thank you!it all worked! I installed the expansion! I followed all the necessary steps! however it asks for the disk! Copying the "#Crack" wasn't enough? Is there more to it?

//EDIT

when I copied and pasted the two files from "crack", two others (from
the base sims) already existed! i was asked wether i wanted to replace
the existing with the new or keep them both and i chose the latter! did i
do wrong?

Everything you copy from the Ultimate fix should replace the existing files Wink.

Probably the easiest way is to delete both "TS3W.exe" files. And do the same with the two "TSL Host.dll" (or whatever they are called). Then re-copy the crack from the Ultimate fix, into that folder.
