Quantum Power Pack Installation Failure. [SOLVED]

Post by IntoTheAbysmalFuture on Sat 26 Oct 2013, 19:25

I've recently performed a clean install of The Sims 3, some EPs, and Into the Future EP.  Followed the install instructions, I've been playing the game perfectly fine with the most up to date patch.  For some reason the limited edition Quantum Power Pack fails to install even though everything is up to date.  

The error is as follows: 
EP11LimitedSET.Sims3Pack: Installation failed: Please make sure your game has the latest Software Updates and try again.  Done!
 


I've searched for a remedy to no avail, and on these forums this is the only post I've found related to the Quantum Power Pack: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t14622-limited-edition-quantum-power-pack?highlight=quantum+power


Can anyone provide suggestions as to what I can do to fix this problem?

You need to decrapify the sims3pack before installing it.

This error is an error caused by the "lock" of store content preventing you to install the official store content without buying (I know, greedy EA).

To get rid of this error, please read Lady Eldi's post: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t5933-how-to-decrapify-a-sims3pack-file-and-avoid-the-please-update-game-launcher-error

Follow the instructions correctly and you will be fine.

cat2006house, you are absolutely correct.  I decrapified the Sims3Pack and it installed without a hitch!  Thank you so much for your support.

Edit:  I'm so thankful that it was such an easy fix rather than something like a complete reinstall of The Sims 3.

Nope, that squares me away just fine.  This problem is solved and everything else appears to be running smoothly.  Again thank you for your help.
