Unable to install Sims 3 Generations. encountered Update Error. [SOLVED]

Post by picanicanick on Thu 30 Jun 2011, 04:33

Hello,

I already followed your instructions in the game fix and how to install. I downloaded everything I need.

So do you mean that I really need to uninstall every expansion and stuff packs I have and install Generations instead after the base game? I am not sure because I think I already followed that steps you mentioned.

Thanks in advance and I hope you will not delete me.

Hello,

No, if you've already done a step, just skip it and move on to the next step.

Hello,

Thanks for replying. I already read the steps and downloaded the fix.

THe problem is, I am UNABLE to install Generations due to the "Unable to update" error message. I get this whenever I try to install Generations. I am prompted to update first before I could continue with installation.

What's next?

Hello,

In that case I recommend you do as following:

1. Completely uninstall The Sims 3 + All expansions and everything else.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall everything using this order: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly-must-read (So Generations after the base game!)

HI Admin,

I did try that already. I can't install Generations after the base game either as I keep being prompted to update but when I try to update, I get the Unable to update error. I carefully followed all your instructions.

One thing I did to be able to install Generations is to download the latest patch for Generations which I got from SIms3 site (TS3_1.22.9.0110xx_update). I was able to install Generations because of the patch however I can't play the game. I get the "unable to validate copy of disc error". I also even used the fix you uploaded from this site. I am 100% sure that I am doing the instructions you have posted. My SKU is set to "1". Maybe you can also update the fix you posted.

THanks

Hello,

You're most welcome. Enjoy playing and please let me know if you have any more problems! For now, topic closed.

Ps. For people who are wondering what I did: I just re-applied the Ultimate Fix correctly and done, problem solved. Smile
