EP Installer can't Open [SOLVED]

Post by Dr3amST on Wed 14 Jan 2015, 23:00

Hello all,


Before I already had Sims 3 installed, played it and had a world saved. However recently I've decided to try and install Sims 3 Ambitions.
I downloaded the files from the official Games4theworld website with no problems.


When I try to open the app for the installer, it just gives an error.


I've also tried the .dmg file method using disk utility with no result.



I'm also on Mac OS X 10.10.1 if that helps.




Help is very much appreciated and I want to fix this as soon as possible.


Thanks a lot!



FIXED IT! Please close this thread

It was just me being stupid and not reading instructions.

Thought it was ok to unarchive the .rar file using RAR Unarchiver and got that error even with .dmg method.

Using Stuffit expander did the trick, thought still don't know what the difference but heyho, it works! Smile

After solving that error, I had integrity error and the "have to have sims 3 installed" error which I solved as well using your guides.

Thanks very much for all the guides and keep up the great work! Smile

Helper edit: Thanks for letting us know! As you asked, I'll close the topic now. Feel free to open a new one if you need it. Have fun!
