Sims 3 Generations Installation problem

Post by cmabb21 on Sun 17 Jul 2011, 03:25

I'm trying to install Generations and during the setup it tells me that I have to update sims 3 before this product can be installed. But then i get an error message saying that "Update of the sims 3 failed, Setup is unable to continue" please help.

Have you installed any expansion packs before trying Generations?

Hello,

I assume you have cracks applied for all the other expansions, am I right?

Hello,

Please apply this Fix, but only up to the step where you update the game. Don't move on in applying the Crack!
Now, try to install Generations and see if it makes any difference. (The difference now is that you have the original files for the game applied and you've got the latest version)

Hello,

Skip the Generations step, move on to the next step. Note that those files you see are not the crack files, but the original files used for updating the game without any problems. The actual crack is in the "# Crack" folder. (The one you DO NOT need to apply at this point yet)

//EDIT




im still getting this error message

//EDIT

its still telling me my base game is not compatible and to update it but its still saying my game is up to date

//EDIT

ok, well after about 5 or 6 tries, it updated and is contiunuing to install generations

//EDIT

once Generations was done installing, i went ahead and finished applying the ultimate fix and everything seemed to be working fine except that now the game freezes after it loads up.
