Cracked the sims 3, still asking me to insert disk

Post by StephCary6281 on Thu 06 Feb 2014, 00:46

ok, so after updating to version 1.67, using the manaul patch provided on this site, the sims is asking me to insert my disk, so i downloaded the ultimate fix. and tried to apply the crack .  it would only allow me to put one of the two .rar files in the Bin folder... i cant seem to catch an admin on the chatbox. but i hate not being able to play my sims. can anyone please tell me what i did wrong?

Hello,

What kind of error message do you get when pasting the two files from the #crack of the Ultimate fix, into the base game location ?

If you have Windows Vista or a later OS, go to C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Right-click on the Bin-folder and choose "properties". Then go to the "Sharing" tab; there, choose "Advanced Sharing".

In the next window, mark the box "Share this folder" and click on the "Permissions" button. And in the following window, mark "allow" next to "full control". Now, close all windows by clicking on "Apply" and then on "OK".

This means you have enabled "sharing" for the Bin-folder. You may have to repeat the process for the "parent"-folders too. This means, continue with the Game-folder, then The Sims 3, then Electronic Arts, etc.


Other than that, there is no real explanation. Please close the Sims 3 launcher when trying to paste the #crack files to their correct locations too. Usually, there is no big deal involving the application of the cracks, but keep us updated ! Smile

Hello again,

Please try what I already explained before in my previous reply:

Yes, this includes Windows 7 too Wink  (since Windows 7 came right after Vista, so 'later').

Keep us updated !
