Island Paradise - asking for a disc during installation

Post by Katcastle on Tue 07 Jan 2014, 08:55

Hey, So I have bought version of TS3 with a couple of expansion pack already downloaded on my windows 8 laptop. So what happens is that when I start to install Island Paradise after I put in the serial code is it ask for a disc/ location of the files such as game / game data/whatever.. not sure what to do.

So you downloaded the IP expansion from G4TW?
Please use WinRAR to extract everything before double-clicking the install file...

sorry yeah, I did download it from here. I cant see any other files that need to be opened, but should I be looking in any particular folder. I dont know if this effects anything but I my setup is Sims3EP10Setup.exe instead of 09 that is in the installation guide

Yeah, this is normal, the setup guide was simply not updated.
No, I was making sure you extracted everything before launching the setup (launching from 7-zip or WinRAR will not work).
