The Sims 3 Generations Installation problem

Post by Lzperson on Wed 10 Jun 2015, 15:55

Hi there,
I have a problem with the installation of The Sims 3 Genarations. I hope I am not posting this in the wrong thread. So, I have installed the base game, Pets and Late Night which are purchased, and Seasons, World Adventures and Ambitions from your torrents. I have applied the Ultimate Fix and everything had worked perfectly until I tried to install Generations. The problem is, as soon as the extraction of the installer from the rar is complete, the installshield wizard loading bar instantly fills up halfway and I get a message saying there was a problem and the installation can't be completed. The details are these:


Error code:           -5006 : 0x80070005

Error Information:

>SetupNew\setup.cpp (630)

PAPP

PVENDOR:Electronic Arts (the sims 3 link)

PGUID:E6B88BD6-E4B2-4701-A648-B6DAC6E491CC

$15.0.0.498

@Windows Vista Service Pack 0 (9200)




IE Version: 9.11.9600.17842

I have Windows 8.1. I can't understand why this is happening, as I didn;t have any problems with the previous installations. I hope I can get a response soon. Thanks!

Welcome to our Forum!

I had to edit your post, sorry, because the black font did not work with the Forum background when using a regular web browser on a computer, making it almost impossible to read.

Just in case, are you using an administrator account? Please, run the installer with the right click, then "run as administrator", I believe you have a good chance to fix this problem.

I got some info at Microsoft Website, just in case: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/816731

You can also follow the instructions on the video below and from the link after it. Please, let us know if you got your problem solved or if you need further assistance.

Hello there,

Please open the .rar file you downloaded using only WinRAR, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org . (If you use any other software than WinRAR, like WinZip or 7-Zip, the files will usually get messed up!)
After opening the .rar file using WinRAR, select all the files in it and drag & drop them to an empty folder on your Desktop. When the extraction has finished, close the .rar file and open the folder on your Desktop. 
Now start by reading the included "# Installation Guide.txt", and you should be able to get the game to work yourself.
