How do I get the right layout in my Sims 4 folder!

Post by middler on Tue 14 Apr 2015, 12:03

Well, I took the plunge by downloading the Sims 4. Only now I see a different layout in my folder Sims4 when I try to copy the Sims4 Get to Work into the Sims4 base game.
In the folder Elektronic Arts I see:

folder: Lanquage Changer
file: Installation Guide
file: setup (windows installer)
file: setup1
file: setup2
file: setup3
file: setup4
file: setup5

But I don't see the next layout wich I need to copy the folders from Get to Work:

folder: _Installer
folder: Data
folder: Delta
folder: EP01
folder: FP01
folder: Game
folder: GP01
folder: Support
file: #Installation Guide

How do I solve this problem? I tried different things but not the right ones?

Hi there, @middler! Smile

The first folder you are talking about (with all of the setup files) has the files for the installation of the game. To install The Sims 4, you need to double click The_Sims_4_Setup.exe and follow the instructions in the Installation Guide.

After that, this folder can be saved elsewhere or deleted if you so wish. But don't put it on Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts, as it may cause problems and confusions. In there is where you will find the The Sims 4 folder that contains the second list of folders you mentioned. Also make sure that you are looking in Program Files (x86), not in Documents, as those are completely different locations.

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