Hello,

Please make sure you have the LATEST Ultimate Fix. I stongly suggest you to redownload one from http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems.

Afterwards, drag and drop the content of the folder #crack from the Ultimate Fix to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

OR if you have bought/downloaded & installed the base game via Origin, drag and drop the content of the folder #crack from the Ultimate Fix to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

Hello,

Can you show me the screenshots of which folder from the Ultimate Fix you have opened and where you have applied the Ultimate Fix to? This problem will only exist because you have done something wrong. Also did you buy the base game via Origin?

Hello,

Which hard disk drive did you install Origin to? It's not C: right?

Hello,

Please check if there are any folders named Origin/Origin Games in other hard disk drives.

Hello,

Are you sure you have bought the base game and the expansions/stuff packs via Origin? Are they bought from store and in the form of discs?

Hello,

How about the base game? Did you buy it from a retail store or from Origin? Is it a disc copy or a digital copy?

Hello,

Then you should apply the #crack of the Ultimate Fix to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Next time please search carefully on your computer and don't say "No I found no folder that is named Origin Games" unless you have searched thoroughly.

Hello,

So does applying the #crack to Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin folder work?

No. But thanks for the help! I've never had that problem with any of the other EPs I downloaded from here, so I kinda freaked.
