Possible silly question about how to install The Sims 4. [SOLVED]

Post by xbeccalouise on Sun 22 Jan 2017, 02:35

Hi,
Iv'e installed The Sims 4 and all expansion packs from your website and The Sims 4 works fine, however the expansion packs don't show up in-game. 

Sorry if it's a silly question, but when installing the expansion packs, do I simply drag and drop the files into the Sims 4 folder OR is there an install icon hiding somewhere?!

OR do I have to install each SP file one by one? 

Please help!

Hello again,

Yes, drag and drop only. Smile  If certain DLC don't show up, check out this here:

Also make sure you are running the game as Administrator, by right-clicking and choosing "run as Administrator". Good luck!

Yes, moving the install folder "The Sims 4" to the desktop can work wonders sometimes. In any case, feel free to open a new topic anytime again you need more advice or help. Until then: have fun! Problem solved, topic closed. Very Happy
