Download the Patch with Chrome and extract using WinRAR.

Hi, so I've been having this problem as well but I'm fairly new to this type of thing. I saw your reply Shamrock but I don't understand what you mean by download with Chrome and extract using Winrar. Could you explain it please? It would be really appreciated. Thanks!

I saw this is another similar thread so I am trying it now, I will post if it works or not.

I am installing the Sims 3 Island Paradise now, I hope it will end up okay, but what I did to get past the error is that I extracted all the files into one folder, went into Support > Updates and double-clicked on the update so it updates manually. Worked. If it still shows you an error, I'd suggest you apply the Ultimate Fix and then try to update. Good luck!


Edit:


Update works, lets see what else happens

//EDIT

Try that fix I shared, it's working for me so far. There might still be bumps in the road but this at least fixes the "Need to update" problem.

Happy gaming

Thanks for the advice. Sorry I'm a little slow, but what does it mean to extract the files into one folder? Which files in which folder? Again I apologize for all the lack of knowledge.

Just use Winrar and click Extract. That way all files will be extracted to the same folder! Wink

Thank you. I downloaded the super patch with Google Chrome and it worked. My game is updated. (:

Any saved items/games you want to keep? Any CC you don't want to lose?
If not, delete the folder Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.
Then restart your game.
Does it help?
