Can't install anything after updating. [SOLVED]

Post by bopeep on Fri 05 Aug 2011, 07:46

Hi,

I've searched the forums, I've read and followed the most recent instructions. Even though I have the original game and expansions, I still downloaded all of them from you guys. I installed sims 3 base game without crack, went to install town life and it said it needed to update the game so I did that and then applied the crack. Next I went to install ambitions and I received the error message

"setup has detected that version 4.3.04 of the sims 3 ambitions is already installed. This setup installs an earlier version the sims 3 ambitions 4.0.87. You will have to install the previous version before installing this version"

I get a similar message regardless of what expansion I go to install like world adventures, late night, or generations and I'm going crazy on how to fix this. I've uninstalled everything, restarted my computer and reinstalled and continue to get the same error message. Please help me!

Thanks in advance

Hello,
Don't apply the crack until after you've installed everything.

Hello,

How can your game version be v4.3.04, if Town Life Stuff is v9.xx.xx ? Are you sure you installed Town Life Stuff? Just to be sure, also install Generations.

I have figured it out..... finally. When I installed the base game and it updated, it also installed high-end and ambitions, or at least the patches for them. I had to go into control panel and uninstall them even though I've never installed them and then I was able to install it properly. At least that's what I believe happened, because I uninstalled all of my sims and then ran a registry cleaner to make sure nothing was left behind and restarted. It was only after I installed the base game that I couldn't install those two expansions.

Thank you for your help and your hard work with this site. I am now a happy simmer again!!!
