Sims 3 Supernatural Update Corrupted. [SOLVED]

Post by Aeriesze on Wed 08 Oct 2014, 05:18

Hi, I've recently tried to install the Sims 3 Supernatural expansion pack, and everything can extract properly until it gets to the update, which freezes.

So I tried to open the update .exe file itself, and it gives me the message that TS3_1.38.151.0180xx_update.exe is corrupt, and I don't know how to go about this.

I've looked to see if this has occurred elsewhere, so if it does, I'm really just an idiot and I apologize beforehand.

Thanks for all you do.

Hello Aeriesze,


The update + crack inside Supernatural is long outdated already. For the latest patch + crack, simply do the steps from #2 to #4 here; everything should be self-explanatory there:

Good luck and post back if you indeed have more questions. Smile

Ah, thanks for such quick replies. (:
Sorry, I just have a really hard time understanding what to do next..
Because the patch & update are outdated, after I've applied the current patch & fix, what do I do now with the Supernatural RAR file? Because it'll still have the outdated patch on its update folder..
Sorry, I know it's self-explanatory, but I can't get my head around it.

Hi there! Smile

The only thing you need to do with the Supernatural folder is install the expansion pack, double clicking the Autorun inside. The product code is inside the Installation Guide, but the rest of the guide can be ignored.

After that, you just need to continue with the Steps 2-4 from the guide posted by Carlos. Very Happy

Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck!

What you "do" with the .RAR file is a totally different issue, and has nothing to do with what I suggested before. Smile  


If you do what I suggested initially, you will update the game, and have the latest crack too. If you wish, the latest update (step #2 in the guide I linked to) will "overwrite" any old updates and cracks. So just run this manual patch from step #2 and you're good to go; then continue with steps #3 and #4 of the guide. What I suggested was a way of getting the game to run, if you wish.

What you should do with the .RAR file, however, is to back it up somewhere, if possible, like on an external hard-drive. So that you won't have to re-download in case something happens, and you need to re-install Windows.

Thanks to the both of you. (:
I had a few more issues, but luckily I didn't need to pester you guys about them.
Everything is fine and dandy now!
Sorry for the misinterpretations.

Keep being awesome!
