!HELP! All packs in menu say 'Download to use' for some reason even though ive added all the games?

Post by eleemo1 on Wed 30 Aug 2017, 17:48

So after hours of fixing my freezing loading screen, when that started working... all the packs in the main menu say 'Download to use' even though I've installed them all by following the forum of how to install all dlc properly... 

Please help!!

I can't place the problem. Has it something to do with Origin or ZLOrigin ?

Did you by any chance install the update only fix? If you have done that, everything will be gone. It returns the game to base game only. That might be the problem.

Hi there,


There is no need to worry regarding the pop up error. Generally, people do no bother to check or hover over the icons at the start up page. lol. If there are no packs greyed out (save for one and if you have installed up till Toddler's stuff pack), the DLCs/packs had indeed been correctly installed and you can enjoy the game.



Do keep me updated if you have further questions/bugs in-game. If not, I'll be closing the thread after your confirmation.  Very Happy Very Happy

Actually I'm having the same problem. When i load the game the Vampires and bowling stuff packs are not showing up. When I'm on the main menu and I hover over those 2 packs it says Downlode to use. How do I fix this?

It looks like you have not installed Vampires (Toddlers\Bowling).
Do install the pack.
Then delete the folder Game from your install folder Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4
Install Parenthood, Fitness and Toddler Stuff again.
