The Sims 3 - Followed instructions, install fails at update of expansions.

Post by DucoNihilum on Mon 10 Oct 2011, 09:47

So when trying to install Generations / Town Life (aside from the whole pack included) it says that the sims needs to be updated in order to continue, however, trying to update fails. I'm lost because I can't even get to step 2 of the troubleshooting.

The error I'm getting now is "Update of the sims failed, setup is unable to continue"

Other times I've gotten errors indicating that "The Sims" isn't installed.

Hello,
Can you tell me which version of the base game you have installed? Sometimes error like this happen with digital downloads.
Can you also tell me which version of the base game you're currently running? You can find out by hovering your mousepointer over the base game icon in the bottom left corner of the game launcher. The first 4 numbers should do.

The game is 1.19.44.010002. That's the base I'm running and the base that is installed. It's a part of the ultimate pack.

Hello,
Such a pack might be a problem because there are no original files available that you need to patch your game, and there may not be a crack available that is compatible.
You can try to update manually to version 1.22.9, then install your expansions, update to 1.24.3 (again manually) then install the crack from the ultimate fix.
This site has all the patches you need. Don't update to 1.25, that's mac only.
If this doesn't work, you may have to download and install G4TW version of the base game.
