Installed wrong can't uninstall base game. [SOLVED]

Post by Jabbrwockii on Tue 03 Mar 2015, 08:30

Hello everyone. I recently downloaded and attempted to install the complete collection but realized I did it wrong and can't uninstall the base game. The files are gone so yeah.... I'm wondering if anyone can help me. Everytime I try to uninstall from the control panel it gives me some odd error message. The code says
>SetupNew/setup.cpp
Papp
Pvendor
Pguid
$15.00.498

. Oh and if it helps, I'm installing on an external Hard drive.

Hello and welcome to the forum,


I once wrote a guide on here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t19018-un-installing-the-sims-3-a-reference-guide


It may be lengthy and difficult to read, but that should help you get rid of any improperly (un-)installed Sims 3 applications. Note that you will need to focus ONLY on the stuff about the Sims 3 base game, since you seemingly have no other expansions. Good luck and keep us posted !


P.S. after you deleted the relevant stuff, please make sure to re-boot the computer, to complete the un-install.

I finally figured it out with a PC Geek friend of mine. I'm currently re-installing TS3 and the expansions again. Thank you though, you may close and archive this post now.

You may still want to bookmark the guide I linked to, for future reference. And from my own experience, I actually avoid uninstalling anything on Windows systems, because of exactly these issues. If something goes wrong (which happens very often, even to experienced users) then you can bet to spend a long time on getting rid of the stuff.

Make sure to do all installations properly, then you should be fine. 


Feel free to open a new thread at anytime, if you have anything else to ask or chat about. Problem solved, topic closed. Smile
