Sims 3 Expansions Problem

Post by 2fast5me on Wed 06 Aug 2014, 10:42

Hello,

I have a problem with the Sims 3 Expansions. I have the steam version of Sims 3 (Latest update: 1.67) and no expansions. My OS is Windows 8.1

The problem is that the installers for all the expansions that were provided at the downloads section of the Games4TheWorld give an error message saying, "This product requires an installed copy of The Sims 3. Please install The Sims 3 before installing this product."



I tried to install the Manual Patch like what the Ultimate Fix said but to no avail.

Please help me, thanks.

Hello,


You cannot use the expansions from G4TW, along with the base game from Steam. Smile  So if you don't want to buy the expansions from Steam, un-install that Steam base game for now, and then re-boot the computer.


Then get your base game from G4TW too, here at this site:

Good luck !
