I can't install expensions packs with same crack name/file. [SOLVED]

Post by Anthi_chan on Thu 17 Oct 2013, 10:39

Hey,

I installed High End Loft and Outdoor and University and they work fine, but when I try to install another expansion pack with the same crack name/file as University (ST3W.exe) it stops working. When I de-install the expansion pack the game works fine again. Because of this I could only install these 3 packs so far since High End and Outdoor have different crack names/files.

Can The Ultimate Fix solve this problem or is it something else?

Thank you ~!

Hello,

Normally, if you follow the instructions here:  http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

then there shouldn't be any problem. So after you installed all expansions you want, you should apply the latest manual patch (step #2 in the instructions) and after that the Ultimate fix (step #4). You can then double-click on the TS3W.exe in the base game location to start the game.

Let us know the result. Good luck ! Smile
