Town Life Stuff/Generations Setup Error

Post by omgxmunchies on Mon 15 Aug 2011, 22:48

Following the instructions in the 'How To Install The Sims 3 Correctly' post, I installed the base game, and then tried to install Generations. I got this error:

>SetupNew\setup.cpp (140)
PAPP:
PVENDOR:
PGUID:
$15.0.0.498
@Windows Vista Service Pack 0 (7600)
IE Version: 8.0.7600.16385

I get the same error if I try to install Town Life Stuff. I'm not even running Vista, I have Windows 7 on this computer. HELP.

Hello,

Please open the .rar file you downloaded using only WinRar, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org . (If you use any other software than WinRar, like WinZip or 7-zip, the files will get messed up!)
When you've opened the file using WinRar, select áll the files in it and drag & drop them to a folder on your Desktop. When the extraction is done, close the .rar file and open the folder on your Desktop.
Now, start by reading the included "# Installation Guide.txt" and you should be able to get the game to work yourself. Good luck!

Okay, thanks. I've been using 7-Zip (which worked just fine on the base install), but I'll see if WinRar fixes it. Smile

Hello,

It should fix the error, yes. The reason why it did work on the base game is because the base game doesn't contain lots of files, just 2 .ISO's, so nothing can be messed up.

Please let us know the result here!
