As for the Ultimate Fix:
  I have watched the video tutorial and it says to move the base game crack into the base game directory, as well as the expansion into its correct directory.
  The written tutorial that comes with the Ultimate Fix doesn't say anything about putting the base game cracks into the base game directory, only the expansion into its correct directory.
  Which one is correct..the video tutorial or the written tutorial?
I dare not install the cracks till I know which is correct for fear of getting the errors again and again.
Please help.

Hello,

In this case, you only need the folder "#crack" in the Ultimate Fix. Simply drag and drop the content of this folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and replace the existing files. You don't need other folders/files. You only need the #crack.

Ok thank you again Cat..I'll try that and let you know if it worked.
To be 100% clear..I don't need the contents of the "All expansion packs released after and including Generations" folder at all before installing the update? Even if I have more than 1 expansion in the list of expansions compatible with the folder "All expansion packs released after and including Generations"?

Hello,

You don't need the content of this folder.

Hi Kotona14,
I was but I took them all out when I uninstalled The Sims 3 again...and Dalphy's Dashboard didn't find any conflicts with them, but I took them out anyway. I doubt I'll use mods again, but maybe I'll be tempted LOL

//EDIT


I've updated via the manual patch and I'm about to install expansion Supernatural. I still haven't played the game yet as I'm trying to do this step by step.

Oh..just an heads up..Origin just updated
 
OK I installed the exp. Supernatural, and dragged the contents of the Ultimate Fix's #Crack folder to "C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin".
It asked if I wanted to apply the store patch and I said no.
I got the error below. I then restarted and installed the patch and restarted the game.
I got the same error below again.
How do I fix this please?
Fleur

P.S. I have no game mods installed.


 
Question..Do I need to re-download Ultimate Fix and Manual Update and apply them both after every expansion?
Question..Do I only need to apply the contents of the #Crack folder from Ultimate Fix after every installation of the expansions for the Sims 3?

Hello,

I think you need to redownload the Ultimate Fix. Make sure the manual patch you have applied is 1.57. And please NO double-posting. Edit your post instead. This is the last warning.

OK...I have re-downloaded and moved the #Crack contents of the Ultimate Fix to the correct place on my computer.
I tested the game and I got no pop up..YAY!!

Now I want to install the expansion, The Sims 3 - World Adventures.
Question is..Do I have to redownload and move the contents of the #Crack folder to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin again?
Or do I have to move the contents from the Ultimate Fix\World Adventure to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin ?

Thanx

Hello,

After installing The Sims 3: World Adventures, simply copy and paste the files from the folder #crack in the Ultimate Fix to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Then basically you are done and you can run the game to see if it works or not.

Hello,

Yes, but remember: make sure the Ultimate Fix is compatible with the base game version before applying. Otherwise, you may get the error again.

Hello,

Not really, unless a patch is released. If so, redownload the Ultimate Fix.
