Installing "Into the Future"/opening .exe on a mac.

Post by hm_matty on Sun 10 Nov 2013, 04:10

I recently downloaded the "Into The Future" expansion pack from the pirate bay. After download was complete, I unzipped the .rar file and tried to follow the included instructions but when asked to open the 'Sims3EP11Setup.exe' I run into an error because macs cannot open .exe files as they are made for windows. Does anyone know a way for me to get around this or change it so that I can properly open and install the expansion? Did I download the wrong version? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Hello,

Regarding this issue, you have to convert the EP to a .dmg file. Please go to this post: 

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t11808-brand-new-how-to-install-the-sims-3-on-mac-os-guide-read-it-here-now-new


Download the mac guide and go to Part 2 which shows you how to do exactly that. Be sure to read the inatructions carefully! 

After that, follow Parts 3 and 4 to complete your installation. 

Please let us know how it goes! Wink

I have already tried that. I converted both Into the Future and World Adventures into separate new images like it said to do. Once finished, I proceeded to click the installer for Into the Future in which case it told me it was broken and the only thing I could do is sent it to the trash. For world adventures, I clicked the installer and nothing happened. It won't open or begin installing. Nothing happens.

Did you use stuffit expander to extract the files?

Yes I did. I deleted the files and torrents from my computer and am currently using Pirate Bay to re-download them and go back thru the process. Hopefully it will work this time thru.


//EDIT

Just downloaded and installed Into the Future. I currently have the base game, high end stuff, late night, and supernatural installed. Do I still have to install the ultimate fix it patch thing? or will just the crack work since this is the latest EP?

That's great to know.

The Ultimate Fix is a MUST. Please do not use any of the crack files that come with the Expansion Packs.

Follow the Mac Install Guide exactly! Wink

Let us know if it works out for you Smile

I got "Into the future" to work. I used the crack that came with it. I didn't see your post until after. The game is working fine though. Haven't used the ultimate fix yet. It is still downloading. Waiting on other EP's to download as well so I can install more.

Ok, but after you install the older EPs you MUST you the Ultimate Fix.. Otherwise your game will not run. Smile

Do let us know how it goes and enjoy your game for now! Wink

Thank you Dieneryn. I bought The base game, high end stuff, late night, and supernatural from Origin. Into the Future is running fabulously, and I cannot wait for these other Eps to download so I can install them as well.
