The Sims 3 base game stuck on installation

Post by heatherdc1980 on Thu 14 Apr 2016, 21:36

My base game Sims 3 has been installing for over four hours.  At least an hour of that has been stuck with no progress at the screen that says, "The InstallShield Wizard is installing The Sims 3." The bar has not moved in over an hour.  The option to "Cancel" is greyed out and unavailable.

What can I do?

//EDIT


LOL, it literally just finished.  Moments after I posted. Wow.

Hello and welcome to the forum @heatherdc1980,


Normally the installation shouldn't take so long. Did you encounter this type of installation problem in the past already, maybe with another game ?

Have you tried defragmenting your hard-drive (can help improving general speeds and performance of your hard-drive operations), and also freeing up some disk space ? Smile
