Multiple Expansion Pack Launcher Installation Issues

Post by Thawkin6 on Mon 10 Jun 2013, 21:26

I have installed the Sims 3 base game along with several other Expansion packs, however when I try to install: High End Loft Stuff, Supernatural and Town Life Stuff the launcher icon bounces in the doc and when I click on the icon it disappears. There was another post on here about correcting it by editing the info.plist on the Sims 3 icon; I have done this and I am still having a problem with these three packs. I assure you I have installed all of them from Games4theworld.

Any and all help is appreciated!!!!

Hello,

How do you open your rar files and unrar them? You should use StuffIt Expander to open them.

And you've created DMGs from the files you've downloaded and extracted with StuffIT Expander?

Yes, I used Disk Utility to create the image and copied everything that was extracted from that folder into the dmg.

I'm beginning to think maybe the files are corrupted somehow.. I mean sometimes while downloading is processing something corrupt the files. 

Can you redownload one of those expansion packs that you want to install but can't right now, and create a new DMG to see if that happens with it or not?
