The Sims 3 EP Struggle Is Real! [SOLVED]

Post by SimSimma on Thu 18 Sep 2014, 07:46

Ok, I installed my legit Sims 3 & Sims 3 Late Night EP. And Then I Accidentally DL's Seasons Before Generations And Now every time I try to install any pack afterwards (even any AFTER Seasons) It tells me it's gonna install seasons & even after I do that, it tells me it's reinstalling seasons regardless of which EP/SP I choose to install in it's place. I tried Censored googling it with no luck. Please help, I'm Censored  Dying Over Here... Sad Sad Sad

FUU! FUU! FUU!

Hello,
Order of install should not be a problem.
However, in your situation, have you tried to uninstall Seasons and restart your PC, then try again with the rest?

Hi Shamrock,
I did & it gave me the same exact thing. I even uninstalled & reinstalled the base game. Still gave me seasons prompt.

Hi there! Smile

How exactly are you trying to install the EPs? There shouldn't be a reason of why clicking the Autorun in one folder would open the Setup from a completely different folder. 

And did you use WinRAR to extract the files from the .rar files? You need to make sure to extract each EP's files in a different folder from the others. They all should be separated, or it may cause problems.

Hey SeoY,

I'll try putting them in different folders & see what happens. Thanks, I'll keep you posted.

//EDIT


It Works Now, They're All In Separate Folders! Haha! Thanks Shamrock & SeoY!
