Hello,


Welcome to the forum!
You can find all of the downloads here. After that, unrar and follow the instructions.
Use the crack in the Fix rather than the one that came with the expansions. 
More that you do not have the "Electronic Arts" folder, look for the "Origin" folder instead.


Note that, if your game was updated to 1.69.xx, you should reinstall your origin base game and disable automatic updates. Use this patch to update to 1.67.


Good luck, and let us know if you have any questions.

Download WinRar from this link https://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html
press CTRL + F and type WinRar. You'll find link, clicl it and download WinRar. 
Now, uninstall WinRar that you had installed and install WinRar that you download. It should be all OK. Future tip: almost everything that you download from G4TW must be unpacked with WinRar.

Now that Ultimate Fix thing that you asked. Open Sims 3 Launcher and please reply which version you have. It's in low left corner. If it's 1.69.xx you'll need Ultimate Fix, but if it says 1.67 it's OK and you don't have to download Ultimate Fix.

Go to this link: https://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html. Press CTRL + F and type name of expansion pack and/or stuff pack that you want and download it.
Install EPs and SPs that you downloaded. Apply cracks, restart pc and right click on Sims 3 in Origin to verify files.

When you extract the expansion, you can run setup and it will install. But you ought to have an Origin folder in Program Files (x86), that is, if your base game is currently installed.

Hello @TeeLoveBaby,


If you install WinRAR, double-clicking on (downloaded) .RAR files on your computer should automatically open the file in WinRAR. If it's not the case, you could right-click on the .RAR file and choose "open with -> WinRAR".

Then, once the file opens with WinRAR, you can mark all contents inside it with your mouse. As if you were marking text. Then you can drag and drop the marked items OUT, for example into a freshly-created folder.

After the extraction is done, you should go to the folder, and start the installation from there. Also close the WinRAR window, then. Smile

Do you think you can upload a screenshot maybe, of what it looks exactly, when you open the download with WinRAR ? Smile

Some other users pointed out that you could try disconnecting your internet prior to using the "launcher". Other than that, and if you "just" want to run the game, you don't need the launcher. You can also start the game directly with the TS3W.exe file, located under C:\Program files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
