Hello there fellow Dutchman,

Please open the "Support" and then "Updates" folder in the .rar file you downloaded.
Now run the 1.55 patch manually, let it finish and then install your game. Have fun!

If you downloaded the fix after the release of Island Paradise by G4TW, then no, those files are the same.
Otherwise yes.

Just delete that file, along with the Thumbnails folder. It will be re created automatically!

Ok, let us try something.
Go to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and delete the file named CasThumbnails.package
Then start your game.
Then exit and retry the install...
Does it work?
