Help updating Sims 3

Post by geekierchick on Thu 08 Dec 2011, 11:51

Good day, I have been trying to look for something that could fix my problem. I'm a noob at patches, cracks and what not. Anyway, my problem is I have Sims 3 on my Windows 7 pc, which i installed from a CD (pirate) version is 1.8.something. I am having an issue with this version, it won't let me move houses. So I try to update to the latest version, but it says that I have no version of Sims 3 installed. My question is, can I directly apply the Ultimate Fix (from another thread) to the Sims 3 I currently have installed? If so how? Sorry for the trouble and thank you very much.

Hello,

You say you bought the base game on a (pirated) disc. 98% of these discs have been modified. This means, your PC won't recognize the game when installed. It might be installed, but your PC won't "see" it.

The only way to fix this is by uninstalling the version you have now and installing a non-modified version. (See: www.games4theworld.org )

Omigoodness I was really hoping I wouldn't have to do that, because it'll mean a week's downloading for me lol. We don't have the fastest connection in the world. But I'm sure that'll fix it, and if I can play my game, then it'll be worth it.

By the way I love this statement of yours:

Hello,

Though, the Ultimate Fix also states that if you update to the latest version, you must install at least one of these expansions, to make it all work: Generations, Pets, Town Life Stuff.
All correct instructions can be found here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

I'm glad you like it! I'll keep this topic open for you, please let us know if you have any more issues.
