Manual Patch doesn't work. [SOLVED]

Post by chi168 on Thu 23 Feb 2012, 16:15

Hello, I have tried using the fix that i found in order to update the sims 3 and I got to the updatestage. The normal update wouldnt work so I downloaded the manual patch and tried it. It took a long while to load and then i got a popup window saying something about service pack 1. I updated my computer to try again and the same thing happened only now it said service pack 2 instead. Ive thought about reinstalling everything as I now cant play the game at all, please help!

The error message i get sais:
>SetupNew\setup.cpp(140)
PAPP:
PVENDOR:
PGUID:
$
@Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (6002)
IE Version 8.0.6001.19088

I just updated to service pack 2 and its windows vista.
I press the update and then it asks for permision to start. I accept and instead or starting i get that message.

Would be nice to know if i can fix it because otherwise I'll just reinstall it, I would really like to have it working tonight...

Hello,

There's no need to reinstall anything!
Please re-download and re-apply this manual patch: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v129-fix-manual-patch (ONLY this version)
