Keep getting error when trying to copy & replace. [SOLVED]

Post by bri1992 on Thu 05 Feb 2015, 00:25

Every time I try to copy and replace .rar files into the folders I keep getting a 'The system cannot find the path specified' and 'Access is denied' because it can't be created. Nothing seems to work.

Hi there, @bri1992, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Very Happy

Please, take a look at this topic:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t17678-permissions-error-when-copying-cracked-files-fix

It shows a possible way to overcome this error. It is written for The Sims 3, but it can also be applied to The Sims 4 if you do the instructions for the folder where you are copying the Ultimate Fix into (it should be Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4).

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

I see. Does the User Account you are using have Administrator rights?

Did you use WinRAR to extract the RAR file? And did you extract the file before trying to copy it to the install location, or did you extract it directly there? Also, where exactly is it that you are copying the files to?

Yes my account has Administrator rights.

I used WinRAR and I extracted the files directly to C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4, but I didn't extract the file before copying it.

I also didn't see a FP01 or GP01 folder when I downloaded the torrent for The Sims 4.

Yeah, those two folders come in the Ultimate Fix, not the actual The Sims 4 torrent.

Just to be clear, you are extracting the Ultimate Fix in there, right? The game torrent doesn't need to be extracted to that location.

Yes. I am extracting the Ultimate Fix. No matter how many time I extract the Fix there is 160 errors saying it can't find the path.

//EDIT

I figured out what I did wrong. I didn't extract the file before trying to copy it to the install location.

That's good to hear! Very Happy

So, the files are copying without problems now? And is the game working fine?
