Can't install Store content after 1.67 patch

Post by monmari on Sun 9 Mar - 0:13

After update 1.67, I have problems with decrapified files since when I try to install them via Sims Launcher, I have a message saying I had to update to the latest version. I have the same message if I try to install without decrap, except for the files I downloaded from the offcial store. Yet my game is updated. I have the store fix and it's updated as well. I also tried the game fix but nothing seems to work. Simply, the Launcher can't read several files, al fresco market for example, either they're decrapified  or not. Could you help me?

Hi there

It seems like you need to decrapify them yourself, since sometimes it plays tricks on you.
So remove the ones you are trying to install now, unpack those you downloaded and use this guide to decrapify them yourself
How To Decrapify

I hope that works Smile

I decrapify myself all the pack I installed since I have the untouched version. Yet I have the same message when I try to install either untouched or decrapified files. The Launcher doesn't install them and I noticed that if I copy a file in download folder before installing and then opne the launcher it seems the launcher doesn't see it. The only files the launcher sees are free items I downloaded directly from the store

Hello,

Try this at first: go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete all of the following stuff:


-CASPartCache.package
-compositorCache.package
-scriptCache.package
-simCompositorCache.package
-socialCache.package
-plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"



Next, try again installing the items with the launcher. If it fails again, you might try the (more radical) solution from this topic here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t2208-sims3pack-installed-world-inaccessible-or-wont-install-fix

Keep in mind that after THAT solution, you'll basically have to re-install ALL your .sims3pack files. Also, I should mention that you should NOT install "too many" .sims3packs at once. Just install them in "small bunches". Otherwise, the launcher can't handle them, and they just won't install.

Otherwise, try "CC Magic", see this topic here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t15843-how-to-use-cc-magic


Whatever you do, good luck, and keep us posted ! Smile 

//EDIT

With CC Magic you can install much more .sims3packs in "one turn".

Well thanks for the solutions. I tried but it didn't works. I have already tried the first solution when I found out the problem since I use mods and usually delete cache files from time to time. I tried the second solution you suggested but at the end of the process the launcher install the packs it saw before and yet can't install the others. I can't use CCmagics since I have all the expansions and ccmagic is realesed for supernatural. I really don't know what to do. Consider that the packs the launcher can't install were perfectly functioning until I had to remove all contents in download folder to install university, islands and into the future and upgraded the game to 1.67. Thank you anyway.
