Sims 3 "complete collection" stuck on installing (won't finish)

Post by dvdmcwilliams on Thu 19 Jan 2017, 22:40

I've downloaded the sims 3 complete collection, and i started to install sims 3 etc, but it wont finish, it gets stuck (10 minutes and counting...) and cannot even cancel the installation, what should i do to install the game properly?
Clean installation, i've never installed sims 3 on my new computer, Windows 7 x64, 16gb ram, GTX 980, installing on D: drive (C: is ssd and got no more space for it).

Edit: i touched the "X" to close the window and oddly it finished the installation  Why.

Hello and welcome back,

Did you download the Games4theworld-version of the compilation...? If so, did you extract the contents of the .rar file with WinRAR?
