Hello,
I think you're right, and that means that you'll have to reinstall the base game.
Is this the first expansion you're installing?

the thing is, i just have the files, dont have the installer, just like i said, i just copy-pasted it, so what are you trying to say is to download the game installer? Any other solutions, since i got a slow internet and it will take many days to download it. Answer regarding to the expansion, yes its my first to install an expansion.

Hello,

Well, no, copy and pasting isn't going to work for sure. You'll need to remove everything first and then reinstalling using, indeed, the installer.
If you don't want to re-download, our CD/DVD Service might be interesting for you.

Besides that, your order isn't correct. Since you've got a slow connection, I recommend following these directions regarding the installation order: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
