Installing Sims 4

Post by Bibietje on Sun 23 Apr 2017, 20:22

Hi,

I've downloaded Sims 4 and all the packs from this website and it works great (Thank you!). So I wanted to install it on my sister her laptop and I just copied all the rar files I downloaded on my laptop on a usb stick (thinking about the long downloading times) and extracted them on her laptop. When trying to install The Sims 4 I get 2 error messages:
1. 12007 http://download.microsoft.com/B/C/3/BC31082E-81B1-48D5-AA89-96DD2B853126/vcreditst_86.exe
2. Warning 4154. Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2013x86 prerequisite was not correctly installed

I canceled the installation and would like to know what I should do. Should I just download the files on her laptop or is there a way to fix the errors?

Thank you!

Hello,


That doesn't have anything to do with the way the files were transferred on your sister's laptop. You can find that particular software on Microsoft download pages.


You may have to do a clean install, that means uninstalling your current version from Control Panel, before installing the latest.

You need both the redist files + directX installed on your sisters laptop.
You can download them HERE

When download is completed:
Click on each of the 3  .exe files
Open the folder DirectX and click on DXSETUP.exe
