Need Help Getting Installation Started. [SOLVED]

Post by mrs.doby on Sun 18 Dec 2011, 06:33

Hi. I am new to G4TW but I LOVE it. I need some help getting things installed. I already own and have installed the games up to Fast Lanes Stuff, I am trying to install Outdoor Living Stuff via torrent. So far I have followed these directions 1-4 of the installation guide. When I went to change the SKU #, it was already set to 1. So I did not change anything. I installed the patch from the torrent and that went fine. But, when I try to install "Sims3SP03Setup.exe" I get an error message that says:

>SetupNew\setup.cpp(140)

PAPP:
PVENDOR:
PGUID:
S15.0.0.498
@Windows Vista Service Pack 0 (6000)
IE Version: 8.0.7600.16385

I have tried installed other expansion and stuff packs, but before it gets to the installation screen I get the same error message for each one. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Please open the .rar file you downloaded using only WinRar, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org . (If you use any other software than WinRar, like WinZip or 7-zip, the files will get messed up!)
When
you've opened the file using WinRar, select áll the files in it and
drag & drop them to a folder on your Desktop. When the extraction is
done, close the .rar file and open the folder on your Desktop.
Now,
start by reading the included "# Installation Guide.txt" and you should
be able to get the game to work yourself. Good luck!
