The files in ''The Sims 3 Store updates 1 to 26 (Up to July)'' are .package files, to install them read here how to install .package files & mods: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t13615-the-sims-3-noobs-guide
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Do you have The sims 3 base game to make the EP's (Expansion Pack) work?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If yes, to make the game work, you need to crack it so whats the latest EP that you installed? (Make sure its higher than other EP's for example Ambitions comes after World Adventure so Ambitions is the newest) after you extract the EP from the format .rar you see a complete folder that you will find setup in it, also in that folder you will find ''#crack'' folder, open it then copy files from it to here C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin, thats how to crack the game directly after installing the EP.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But the best way to crack the game is the apply the Ultimate Fix, to apply it read the ''Installation guide'' in the fix or watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TrRrF5ysPa8
But before applying the ultimate fix you need to apply the latest patch for the game found here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v155-fix-manual-patch (or if you have Island Paradise you can find the patch in ''Support'' then ''Updates'' in the extracted folder).
