Sims 3 Game not working

Post by Captain_cum223 on Thu 04 Jul 2013, 05:40

Alrighty i'm on my laptop which I had downloaded and installed (sims 3 deluxe edition build 8.1 or something from Kickass Torrents) this sims 3 deluxe and I've been playing it for a while and decided to get the sims 3 Island Paradise expansion.  When I downloaded it I ran the install and the update so the install would work but when I click to play my sims 3 it says "please reinstall the sims 3" the only problem is that this sims 3 that I have is weird, as in there's no "uninstall" at all anywhere.  I don't want to lose anything so what can I do?

Ok, if your OS is in English, you could try my new tool (see this topic).
It will apply the Ultimate Fix for you.

Hello,



Are you sure you apply the #crack in the Ultimate Fix to the correct directory: C:\Program Files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin?

Your game is badly installed (this is what the error means).
So it cannot be working at all.
Why R.G.Catalyst?
