Help updating games. [SOLVED]

Post by Michelle801 on Tue 22 Jul 2014, 00:30

Help This has never happened before, every time I try to install anything, I keep getting this error

Before trying to update


After Trying to update


Now before I tried to even install anything, I installed my physical copies of The Sims 3/Ambitions/World Adventures/Pets/Showtime and Diesel Stuff first

Everything is going good, I then torrented the expansions and stuff packs I wanted and once they were done, I opened one of them to start the installation process and got that error.

Am I doing something wrong? This now happens with every expansion and Stuff pack that I got off G4TW Sever, which it never did, since I’ve used it in the past and installing was never a problem.

Help is greatly appreciated, Thanks!

Hello,

Have you tried updating the game with the "manual superpatch" ? Look here, under step #2:

Keep in mind the other steps too, though. Good luck, and keep us posted ! Smile

I went and downloaded the super patch and as soon as I did this showed up

I updated the launcher via the base game and that helped a little with the installation, but now that error is worrying me as I never had that problem either, so far, generations and Seasons is giving that problem error. The patch also can't identify either

Can you right-click on the patch and choose "Run as Administrator" ? Also, did you get "Seasons" from a physical disc or did you pirate it ? Have you tried un-installing Seasons and then re-booting the computer ? After that, try re-running the patch.

Something probably went wrong during the installation of your games...did you extract the contents of the (pirated) game downloads with
WinRAR, and into an extra folder ? Because that's the way it should be done, to avoid any possible issues.

I tried that just now (running as administrator) and so far, it’s worked flawlessly, no errors yet. I’ll let you know when I finish installing Smile
