Administrator permission required after 1.67 fix. [SOLVED]

Post by mkwilke on Wed 12 Mar 2014, 16:54

Hi there i just downloaded the new update for sims3 1.67 last night after doing so it said I needed a game disc so I came on here and downloaded your ultimate fix package. I followed the instructions in there to a t. However, when I got to step 10 of applying the first crack to the sims3 base game/bin folder i got a box pop up when I tried to move and replace with crack. The pop up says Destination Folder Access Denied, You need permission to perform this action.

Here is what I have tried.
Going into properties and making myself the folder owner. Has not worked
Moving and adding the files instead of replacing them. This worked but I had no clue whether it would make the game work so I just deleted the files. I was basically just trying everything I could think of.
Moving and creating a shortcut of the files also worked but did the same as above.

So now heres the thing. Before I knew about the ultimate fix I had successfully put every crack from the original downloads that came with the games from games4theworld into the sims3 game/bin folder. So this is the first one that wont work. Now the really funny part is I am the only user on this laptop so I have administrator access. lol. So if anyone can help :)I would be forever greatful. Thanks sorry about the length. Very Happy


It fixed itself after I restarted the computer. Thanks anyways guys. Smile
