NEED MAJOR HELP!!

Post by Ashapee on Tue 17 Jun 2014, 18:10

Okay, so I had to get a new hard drive in my computer and when my friend did that he went ahead and put on all of the sims 3 games on for me. Everything worked fine until I got some new store content and then the new content wouldn't work; so then I downloaded your store fix, but the way he had everything set up it wasn't in the same folders that you said to place things in your instructions- I didn't even had an Electronic Arts folder... So I decided to uninstall all of the games and reinstall all of them using your torrents, that way I'll know how to fix my problems. Well.... I can't World Adventures to install, I keep getting the regional code error and when I went to do the patches in WA I'd get an invalid file error.. So I decided just to skip it for now. And all the expansions and stuff packs installed just fine. Then when I go to open my sims launcher the error during startup see log for details error pops up. I watched the video for the fix to that, but if I already have all the EPS installed would I have to uninstall and reinstall them? Because there aren't any duplicates in the regedit. I even did the Ultimate Fix, but for some reason the installation guide comes up a bunch of random characters instead of instructions. PLEASE HELP! Even if you yell at me  pale  Thanks in advance!

Hello,

Always make sure to re-do the steps from #2 to #4 here:

Ignore the cracks and patches that are included in the expansions. Good luck for now ! Smile

Sorry for the late reply, but can you un-install the base game only, and then RE-BOOT the computer ? After that, re-install the base game and re-do the steps from #2 to #4 I mentioned in my last post. Good luck !
