"Invalid file found" despite desperate measures, updating to 1.24 (Sims 3) [SOLVED]

Post by Viet2010 on Mon 01 Aug 2011, 19:46

Dear Games4theworld,

I am getting the "Invalid file found" error despite following the directions from the ultimate fix's .pdf. I have copypasta'd the path to the locations so that there should be no error, yet there is one!



I made it so that you can see the names of the files if you see something that could be invalid.

Hello,

Which files did you copy to that folder? Could you make a screenshot of that too, please?

I copied the Town Life folder's files into The Sims 3's bin folder.

Hello,

Then you might have copied the other original files to the wrong folder(s). Please re-do the Fix and read all the steps VERY carefully on where exactly to put which file(s). Very carefully and slowly.
Let me know the result here, please.

So I:

1. Replace the files from the base game.
2. Replace the files from World Adventures.
3. Replace the files from Ambitions.
4. Replace the files from Late Night.
5. Replace the files from Outdoor Living Stuff.
6. Replace the files from Town Life Stuff.
7. Update.
8. Crack.

I have WA, Ambitions, LN, Outdoor Living Stuff, Generations, and Town Life.

EDIT: I'm still getting the error despite doing everything carefully.

I would if I hadn't uninstalled everything. Please lock this thread, I no longer need help.

Admin edit: Yes, you're welcome. Topic closed.
