Problem installing Generations. [SOLVED]

Post by Aedv on Sat 16 Jul 2011, 23:07

Hello,

I've made a account for this one question.
I have downloaded The Ultimate Bundle (Includes: Base Game, Late Night, High end Loft stuff, outdoor stuff, fast lane, ambitions, WA)
And I have downloaded Generations separatly because it isn't included in the Ultimate Bundle.

Well, I have already installed the Ultimate Bundle except for Ambitions + WA because I'm not interested in those expansions,
But, I wanted to install the Sims 3 Generations AFTER I had installed the Ultimate Bundle..

It just won't install. First it says that I need to update the game or something like that, and then it says "Installation cannot be resumed" and then it stops the installation.

I have played the Ultimate Bundle and it worked fine, but I want to play Generations too.

I just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong, I have re-installed the base game, tried to install Generations first and THEN the expansions (high end loft etc)
but that didn't work either.

** When I try to just patch/update the Ultimate Bundle (and not the Generations) it says this: "Setup has detected that no version of Sims 3 is installed, this update requires a previous version of the application is installed"

This is a real long post lol, but I hope someone can help me a.s.a.p..

Thanks

I would suggest a fresh installation of everything.

1. Uninstall all Sims 3 applications from your computer.
2. Delete Electronic Arts folder in Program Files, if it's still there.
3. Restart computer.
4. Install The Sims 3 base game, then Generations, then any other expansion pack you want. Only install them, don't do any patches or cracks!
5. After everything is installed, open the Sims 3 Launcher and update.
6. After updating, use the Generations crack from the file linked below (or you can just use the crack included with Generations expansion you downloaded) and place it in C:/Program Files/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Game/Bin.
7. Play your game and enjoy!

Thank you for your quick response.

I did everything you said. I uninstalled Sims 3 + EP's and all the other applications. I deleted the EA Folder from Documents + Program Files and
I also deleted Origin. I downloaded the Ultimate Fix (I already downloaded that yesterday to try and fix this problem but it didn't) and then I restarted my laptop.

I installed the Sims 3, ONLY the base game, and no patches or cracks
Then I 'Mounted' the Sims 3 Generation ISO (The ISO is called: rlds3gn) with Daemon Tools Lite and it said

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's in Dutch but I'll translate it:

  • 1st message: The Sims 3 should be updated for this product can be installed. The installer will now attempt to update the Sims 3. Do you want to continue? (I clicked Yes, continue)

    2nd message: The update for The Sims 3 has failed. The installation can not be resumed. (I clicked OK, lol there wasn't really an option)
    And then it just closes itself.

I really don't understand what I'm doing wrong. Is it the Generations ISO itself?

Thanks.

Hello,

Yes I did, but when I choose the option Install EA Download Manager it says this:

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The second message: You do not have the necessary rights to perform this process.

And when I click OK it doesn't install EA Download Manager.

I have tried just about everything, all the patches + updates don't work, and I even downloaded another Generation ISO but it doesn't work.

Hello,

You're talking about an Ultimate he Sims 3 Bundle. Sounds like a torrent from an other uploader which automatically installs all the expansions you like?
I'm 99% sure this is causing the problem, since such automated progresses usually result in your PC not recognizing all the seperate packs.
I recommend you download all the The Sims 3 game(s) / packs from ® Games4theworld Downloads and then reinstall them one by one, following this guide: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly-must-read

Please let us know if you have any more problems after that!

Hello,

Thank you for the response.

Yes well, I don't download torrents.. I download via yabsearch (Newsleecher?), so I can only download NZB's (And if I can download torrents I wouldn't know how lol)

But, I'm downloading all the EP's plus the base game separatly and I hope that will work.

I'll let you know if there are any further problems while installing the Sims.
But for now I want to compliment you all for the great support! Smile

Hello,

I've re-downloaded all the EP's + base game, and downloaded Late Night from your site with Bittorrent (It really took me a while).

But, I have a quick question.
It isn't really clear for me in the Installation Guide,
Do I, AFTER I installed the Sims 3 Base Game, update? And then install Generations and update it, and then install the EP's and update along with the EP's? Or don't update at all? I get lost in that part.

Because after installing The Sims 3 base game now, I have updated it.
Is that the correct way or?

Thanks

If you follow this guide: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly-must-read you don't update the game manually. At least not until you're completely finished installing and using the fix.
