I've read somewhere here (I think it was Lady ElDi) that the "Invalid file found" error is caused by a misplaced .exe/.dll.. If you have all of those in the right folders, you can try a lazy 'half-uninstall' I do when something's not going well with Sims 3..
I copy my entire \Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 folder to the desktop the launch the game so that it creates a new directory free of anything I may have messed up.. I guess in your case you can try launching it so it will make the directory, quit and then run your patch..
Hopefully someone that knows what's going on will log on soon to help you.. Until then, this try is harmless..

Hello,
I believe these are 3 ways to patch your game, but they have nothing to do with the "invalid file" error.
The official Sims forums are obviously not dealing with that kind of error since it doesn't happen with retail versions.
The key is to put all the files in the fix in the right folders, which means reading carefully and following each step to the letter.
