Downloading The Sims 3 Island Paradise CRC error

Post by alanaaa_x on Sun 21 Jul 2013, 13:53

I was having problems with the game, so i downloaded the island paradise update found in its folder. I successfully installed it until the end where it says:

CRC error: the file doesnt match the file in the setups .cab file. The medium from which you are running the setup may be corrupted; contact your software vendor.

Have no idea, help!

Hello,

Did you have the same problem when installing other expansion packs?

Hello,

Did you unzip The Sims 3: Island Paradise using WinRAR?

Hello,

Have you applied the Ultimate Fix, which can be found here?

Apply the contents of #crack folder in the Ultimate Fix to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
