Post by TeeReckx on Sat 21 Mar 2015, 22:21

I'm running on a MAC, right now I am trying to Install the Sims 3 University when I run the "Sims3EP09Setup.exe" I get the error "The contents of the file "Sims3EP09Setup.exe" can no be extracted with this program. This is my second time trying to install S3Uni and the S3rar has already went through Stuffit Expander too. Anyway to help please respond, Thank you.

Hello and welcome to the forum,


Not sure if that issue is the same as what you asked me in your e-mail, but our downloads are meant for Windows OS in the first place. If you want to use our The Sims 3 games on Mac, please consult this guide here:

http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/Guides/Sims_3_Mac_Guide.pdf

Should you have further questions, please wait either for Phoebe to get back to you, or wait for someone else with better Mac knowledge than me, to help you out. Note that currently, Phoebe is not regularly on the forum though, so you might have to wait a little while. 

Next: do NOT send team members messages asking about support on games/software/hardware, please. Smile  Things like that should either be posted on the forum or our Facebook page. One exception is that the team member you are contacting specifically allows such private conversation. Please check the individual team member's signature & profile for more information on this.

This is is also the reason why I put a bold red notice at the end of my signature: I generally do not answer mails asking about game support. This e-mail button on my profile is mainly intended for private chat with friends and such. And of course, in case of "emergencies", like troublesome forum users, people may use that e-mail button to report these issues to me.

Hello, the problem is that you try to click the .exe that macs are not supported. Instead, you must convert the files into a .dmg!

Here is my mini guide *copy and paste*:


For mac, you have to individually install each expansion mac manually, please refer to the Mac guide.
CLICK HERE

edit: I download this file myself and install the program myself, and it works!
Here's my mini guide/tutorial installing the Base Game!

1. After download you MUST open with Stuffit Expander
2. After extracting all the file, make a .dmg file with disk utility
   a. more info how go to here "CLICK HERE" <- scroll down to the bottom

    ---. Install the expansions
3. Use the #Crack that was provided in the expansions folder that was part of the download. (crack part of the .dmg)
4. Open Launcher (Check if the expansion was successfully installed /see if icon is listed/) if not, try to reinstall. (DO NOT PLAY)
5. Close Launcher
6. Now use the crack in the #Crack folder in the Ultimate Fix you download from Games4world.
7. Done! Very Happy Happy playing!





!! When you install the EP make sure you INSTALL IN RELEASE ORDER! If you do know you can go here
