Reinstalled Windows, now The Sims 3 does not recognize the expansions

Post by dakydaky on Tue 23 Jul 2013, 15:13

Hello,

so, I noticed the game did not work after updating windows, so I went on and reinstalled the base game like the popup windows told me to. I installed your latest patch, fixes etc. And the base game works perfectly now. The problem is, it does not detect any of the expansions when I open the launcher. Is there any other solution rather than re-downloading 50gb of expansions all again? Thanks.

Yes, that means the Ultimate Fix is not properly done.
Please use my new tool (see here).

Eh, thanks, but for some reason when I open your tool it says that I have to have at least one of the following installed, and I have Pets and Generations.

Then there is a problem.
Open the registry, and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Node6432\Sims.
There, delete all folders that correspond to games you don't have installed on your pc.
Then retry the tool.

Country        US
Display Name -  The Sims 3

No, I installed the large as hell 50gb pack or something, then I changed to other disc and reinstalled the windows, so it is possible that registry changed. Is it possible for you to make some kind or reg-fixer? For the base game I used the Razor1911 verzo.

Nope, we need to do a Team Viewer session.
Otherwise you'll have to uninstall all your games and re install from here...

The registry is empty.
I will try and generate the missing registry files.
Please give me a list (I forgot to note them down) of all the expansions you have!

Try this. Double click it and accept that it may cause changes.
Then retry with the tool.
I can't promise anything though, too many stuff to guess!
Otherwise, clean re install is in order!!
