Hello,

That's correct, but you just need to follow ALL instructions from the Fix. Don't skip any steps.
Instructions are included in the "# Installation Guide.pdf".

Hello,

Instructions are included in the "# Installation Guide.pdf".

Correction:
The Late Night files are not applied to the base game folder! Only the Generations/Town Life Stuff/Pets/Master Suite stuff/Showtime. The others are applied to their own game\bin folders. Read the installation guide carefully.

Hello,

Yes that's right, the patch is done at step 11. So if you were there but couldn't update, you can now use that patch and proceed to step 13 in the fix.

Hello,

The manual patch is installed in stead of step 11 (&12 obviously, if you didn't open it, you don't have to quit the launcher) so at this point you can install the manual update, then move on to step 13.

Hello,

When you reinstalled, did you restart the pc after uninstalling?

Hello,

Looks good. Small change:

1. Completely uninstall the game(s).
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall the games you want.
4. Download and apply the 1.33 manual patch: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v133-fix-manual-patch-updated
5. Download and apply the latest version of the Ultimate Fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems
6. Start the game and... ENJOY playing!

We'll be waiting for the result. Good luck!

Hello,

Start by running Ccleaner, and if that doesn't work, you may have to reinstall again I'm afraid. You did restart the pc right?

Hello,

Install the program, and use it to scan and fix the registry. Don't worry, it's very easy to use.
