Cannot even try to setup any Sims games?!

Post by likelucklove on Mon 10 Jun 2013, 18:22

I recently had to do a complete reset on my laptop so have had to download all the games again WhatDidUJustCallMe?

When I have tried to install any of the Sims 3 packs, it has come up with the error message I in the photo bucket link. Does anyone know what to do? I already have the base game, late night and ambitions since I bought them and they were on origin.

After the error message has come up, I can try and install it using recommended settings, but it comes up with the same error. I need to play I haven't even played university Sad

TIA!

Try to use WinRAR to open the archive, then extract the files (all). Then only, try to install.

Worked a treat, thank you. I installed winzip instead or winrar.
