That means where do I have to install it into??
Hello,

First of all: this should NOT happen, which is why I'm a bit surprised, but OK. Try changing the location to C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts.

Either way, you should be able to install it on another location (whatever you prefer); you can even install expansions on an external hard-drive, but personally, I do NOT recommend that. Just stick with your "main" hard-drive.

Good luck - and let us know the outcome !

Firstly, thanks alot for your fast reply!!! But Previously I have tried to install on quite alot of places and have tried to used the recommended installation but once I open the game it does not have the university expansion but only the island paradise expansion pack only. But I will try your method and get Back to you soon! Wink

Hello,

How do you mean it doesn't have the University Life expansion? If you open the launcher, you can tell which expansions have been installed by looking at the icons on the bottom of the launcher. The ones that are lit up, are installed.
If you were going by the loading screen, it makes sense that you're getting the Island Paradise loading screen, even though you installed University Life after that. You get the latest EP's loading screen, not the one you installed last.
