Can't Update The Sims 3 After Installing Town Life Stuff. [SOLVED]

Post by Syddie on Fri 14 Oct 2011, 04:55

I have had the sims 3 and full updated for a while and after installing Town Life Stuff I was unable to apply the fix and update it. The most off part is that it's telling me that I need to update from 1.23 to 1.24 which is an update that I should have installed already. I uninstalled the base game, generations, and town life stuff and reinstalled them (since they weren't showing up on my launcher. The launcher wasn't recognizing that i had them) and was unable to open the launcher at all until I applied the crack. After applying the crack it again told me that I need the 1.23 to 1.24 update and was unable to update it with the crack applied. Please help me figure out a way to fix this without having to completely redownload all the expansions to reinstall them.

Hello,
Fortunately, you don't have to reinstall your game at all. This problem is solved by applying the ultimate fix. You'll find the link in my signature.
Let us know if you run into any more problems.

The fix doesn't work. This problem occurred even with the fix applied. All applying the fix did was make the Base Game, Generations, and Town Life Stuff read as if they weren't installed at all and I was unable to find the update that I needed to install. I thought I had mentioned that the fix didn't work, if I didn't I meant to.

//EDIT



This is as far as I can get with the fix applied and NO crack

Hello,
You can update to 1.24 manually, that often works with this type of error.. Assuming you've applied the fix up to step 12, instead of using the launcher to update, download and execute the patch, apply the crack (step 14) and your game should work. Let us know if it does, if it doesn't, we'll look for other solutions.

I had this EXACT same problem. I did as you said and downloaded the manual update and ran it. Fixed the issue and I'm now running the 1.24 version! Thank you! Smile
