sims 3 expasion installation [SOLVED]

Post by tbtbtb on Sat 12 Jul 2014, 16:33

Hi I'm terrible at all this so I'm hoping someone can help me. Judging by looking through the threads, I'm having the same problem a lot of people are. I have The sims 3 base game from origin, and I have installed The Sims 3 University. I have downloaded the manual patch and ultimate fix. My issue is probably stupid, but I'm stuck on no.4 
4. Open the "# Crack" folder in the Ultimate Fix and drag & drop the .exe and .dll file in there to exactly: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin   and choose "Copy and Replace" on the pop-up that appears, telling you the files already exist in that folder. 
(If you downloaded and installed your base game via Origin, the crack goes into this folder instead: C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3\Game\Bin )


I can't find either of these. Is there a place I can copy and paste the links so I can find them? Thank you Smile

Hi there,

Do you have a The Sims 3 Game Launcher icon on your Desktop or something? Then just right-click on it and choose "Open file location". What folder are you taken to?

After the download is finished, you double-click on that downloaded patch (which is about 1.62 GB in size), and follow the on-screen instructions.
