Well, sadly I haven't been able to get it to work at all either. So I'm sorry to say, but you might just not be able to use that lot. You could always try to recreate it though.

Adding to what invalidusername said, if an item/lot from the exchange is so "difficult" to install, you might as well just forget about it. Most likely, even if you managed to install that somehow, you will get issues with that item/lot, sooner or later.

Hello, I downloaded sims 3 base game, ambitions and supernatural eps from torrent. And I'm playing them without any problem almost one week. However i wanted to install midnight hollow and downloaded it from this website but i received midnighthollow.sims3pack: requires a software update. then i did everything written on guides at this website including decrapifying it and the thing about creating a mod file but still im receiving the same error. Im trying to fix this for last 2 days but nothing happened. I'll be so glad if someone can help to me.

Thanks a lot:)
