Installation problems. [SOLVED]

Post by jananifan on Fri 12 Jul 2013, 15:18

Help  I had installed most of the sims 3 expansion packs up until University Life and they were working fine. I wanted to install Island Paradise and that's when the problems started. I have to admit that I hadn't downloaded the catches and fixes. What I did was uninstall all the sims games, and then reinstall them, without the cracks. When it came to install university life it asked for a disk, but there is none in the downloaded folder. When I skipped installing Unilife to install Island Paradise it didn't want to update the base gamewhen it worked fine throughout the previous games. I thought of applying the fixes or anything else that was suggested but to do all of that it is necessary to have the games installed. Am I doing something wrong? How can I fix this? Please help. Thank you

Hello,

Have you tried this before installing Island Paradise and University Life?

Hello,


Just do it once and you can install both expansions straight away. Remember to apply the latest Ultimate Fix afterwards!

I was able to install Island Paradise just like you said, but Uni Life still won't go. When it's nearly done with installing it asks for a disk. I've already tried using the ones of the base game, but it doesn't recognize it either =/

Well Uni Life won't finish the installation and according to what I read, the fix can only be applied after the game is installed, or am I wrong?

Hello,



Bear in mind that you should only use WinRAR to extract The Sims 3: University Life torrent. Other tools can mess up your files. Have you downloaded the latest Ultimate Fix (version 1.55)? I think yours is outdated.

I downloaded it today so I think the fix must be up to date.
I applied it but it still asks for a disk. I think I'm just gonna download the game again.
