Problem with installation of expansions of The Sims 3

Post by Celotom on Sun 04 May 2014, 23:24

Hello! Sorry for my bad english, I'm brazilian Razz. I'm having a problem with the installation of The Sims 3 Expasions that I download at here, Games4theworld, and I did everything that I needed to do (as seen in the guides that the site offers), like trying to create the .dmg file and other things. The problem is, every time I try to open the installer, It just closes, quickly, and nothing happens. Can you guys help me? Thank you, very much Smile .

Same problem here

I am having exactly the same problem.
Using the Sims 3 Mac Installation Guide provided by this website, I successfully installed the base game, and created .dmg files for each expansion.  
I used the base game and expansion packs recommended by the Mac guide.
I have followed the steps in the guide exactly up to "Part 3: Installing Expansion Packs", which is where the problem started.

After mounting the .dmg file, I attempt to open the installer within it, but it seems like nothing happens.  I have tried double clicking it, right click > opening it, nothing works.  After my attempts I wait a bit before 'ejecting' the .dmg, and when I do there is no warning saying that it's in use, proving that it isn't just very slow opening the installer.

I first emailed explaining my problem, and they quickly responded. They said they have no mac experience, but recommended I go to this forum for help.  So here I am.

Hello Celotom,

Did you use Stuffit Expander to unzip your expansion files? Also, can you show me a screenshot of your launcher? Smile

Eppsticy51 and Oatsey1983, please open your own topic if you require answers. Everyone's problem is different. Thank you for understanding. Smile
