Island Paradise won't install. [SOLVED]

Post by LittlePenguin on Thu 05 Jun 2014, 16:15

OK so I was following these instructions exactly, but I was still on Step 1 when this happened. I already had up to Katy Perry from 2 years ago, was up to date with all the cracks and patches thanks to you guys, so I began with Diesel, then Supernatural, Seasons, 70s-80s-90s, and University Life. They all went perfect, no snags. Each one updated the game then installed the EP/SP. Then I tried to install Island Paradise, and InstallShield Wizard asked me to update Sims 3, just like all the ones before it did. Of course I say yes, but this time it said "Error with The Sims 3 update. Setup is unable to continue." It aborts and the Compatibility Assistant pops up, and I dismiss that.

I don't think it's because I'm offline while I'm installing because I was offline the whole time. I wondered if maybe the setup file had the wrong name, because the # Installation Guide said "Open the Sims3EP09Setup.exe" and the file in the folder is Sims3EP10Setup.exe but I counted and I think 10 is correct, so the typo in the Guide shouldn't matter.

So maybe there's just something wrong with my download? I'll try downloading it again to see if that helps. But if that doesn't help, where do I go from here?

Thanks...

Hello,

Download and execute the manual patch before installing the EP. 
I think this "sims3ep09setup.exe" is a typo in the installationguide.

Thanks. Will I have to do this again after I install Into the Future? Or will I be able to go directly to installing the Ultimate Fix?

Yes, after adding additional expansions, it's a good idea to re-appy the manual patch and then the Ultimate fix. Smile
