Sims 3 failing to launch after mounting.[SOLVED]

Post by Secretninjacat on Wed 05 Feb 2014, 21:58

I have downloaded all of the sims3 expansions available all from games4theworld and downloaded Daemon Tools Lite. However when I mounted both the start disk and disk 1, I couldn't get either one to open or run. I clicked on the icon, attempted to run it as administrator and even re-downloaded the sims 3 base game. It doesn't give an error or anything, it just wont start the instillation.

It was originally the video I went to when I first started trying to install the game. It was the reason I downloaded daemon tools lite instead of using the sheep clone drive. I followed the video but nothing happens after I mount the discs and then select the sims3 iso, I have tried unmounting and mounting the other iso first and trying to open it but the same thing happens. It looks like its loading for half a second then just stops.


//EDIT

I was able to find the problem myself, I had installed Sims 3 on a different hard drive that I no longer have on my computer. Even though I didn't have the game still on my computer there where registry files hidden about my computer that told my computer I still had a version of the sims. I was able to go to the ea help forums and find everything I needed to get rid of. Good luck to anyone else with this problem.
