"This product requires an installed copy of The Sims 3. Please install The Sims 3 before installing this product."

The topic title says it all. I have properly installed the base game with the games4theworld custom updater, successfully started the base game in a test run, and then I moved onto expansions. And they all have this error. It may just be me being stupid (it normally is) but I'm posting incase I can get support, and incase it's something bigger.

Thanks!

Hello,

What can you tell us about the base game, did you download it from us, or from another source? And if it's the latter, is it a "stand-alone" base game, or a special edition or custom installer of some sort?
Did you, by any chance, install on an external drive that may now have been assigned a different drive letter?
