I think I know my problem now... I only had sims 3 + world adventures and ambitions.. but it says I need atleast one dlc after generations.

Can you confirm this could be the problem?

Yes, you ALSO need to have at least one of the expansions/stuffpacks from "Generations" onwards, too. See step #1 here:

Good luck again !
