Sims 3 is corrupted or not properly installed.

Post by Syllabolic on Mon 01 Jan 2018, 03:27

Heya! I've downloaded The Sims 3 full edition torrent, and all was going fine until I tried installing Into The Future. Every time I tried installing it, I'd get a pop up saying "The Sims 3 is corrupted or not properly installed. I tried updating origin (I read other posts on here and that was suggested), I've tried installing Seasons before trying to install Into The Future once more (I also attempted to install Island Paradise but that had the same message). Also, I'm installing the Sims 3 on my portable hard drive thingy, and it seems to run just fine.
I did the whole typing in the command shtick, and I opened up the Sims3.reg, and here's what it said:

(P.S.: on a completely different note, my computer says that it is a 32 bit machine, but only the 64 bit prompt worked, and in general 64 bit programs run on my computer. Did HP just mislabel my computer?)

Hello,


You can find out which version of windows you're running by going into Settings>System>About, but it shouldn't matter for The Sims 3, since it's a 32-bit game. 


To summarise:
You're installing the game on an external HD;
You've installed everything on the same day/without restarts;
Only Into the Future is giving you problems.


The only thing that occurs to me, if that it might be that you've restarted at some point before installing the expansion, and the external drive was assigned a different drive letter. if that's what happened, the regiostry entries don't match the drive letter anymore, and you can easily fix it by reassigning it the same drive letter it had when you installed the base game, and the other expansions. 
You can do that by right-clicking on the Windows icon in the lower left corner of your desktop, and going into Disk Management. Find the disk, and assign it a (fixed) letter.


Also, make sure you're installing "Into the Future" to the same partition as everything else!

Hi! 
Thanks for the reply.
So I'm really bad with never restarting my computer, and I know for sure that I have not restarted my laptop that day. Also, I'm having issues with Paradise Living (I think that's what it's called? Too lazy to go look) and University Life.

Just another thought from me @Syllabolic. It is not directly stated in your opening message, but the very first time you installed the base game of The Sims 3, you must have installed it "someplace". That should be clear.

My question now is, did you MOVE that installation folder of the TS3 basegame, at any point after that?
