The Sims 3 Installation help.

Post by errrx on Sun 01 Aug 2010, 14:51

I'm now installing Games4theWorld's version of the Sims 3 in my laptop. And this appears all the time, even after clicking the Retry button. Please help me. Smile




Thanks so much. Smile

Hello,

Try the following:

1. Select áll the files in the .rar file you downloaded.
2. Drag & drop them to a folder on your Desktop.
3. Restart the Installation and see if it works.


Side note:

First, Mount both Images. When the Installation asks for Disk 1,
click 'Browse' and select óne of the two Mounted Images. If you get an
error, just click the other Image you Mounted. When the Installation
asks for Disk 2, do the same. The Installation should go on now.

Hi, how do I mount the files? I burnt the files instead of mounting them because I don't know how to do it that way. Thanks. Smile

Hello,

If you don't know how to Mount, read our free Mounting Guide on www.games4theworld.org under "All our Downloads".

Hi Smile

Thanks, it works. Smile Another Q, do I have to accept the installation of the Download Manager or not?

ok so never mind this question. Smile

I'm now installing the World Adventures (I'm installing all expansion packs and following the fix), and i'm on step 9 which says:
9. Start the The Sims 3 launcher. You'll get a message that you're version of the Game is not
compatible. Click 'OK'. You're now on the Update window. Check the box inf front of the
'SIms3_2.5.12.004002_from_2.0.86.00.2002.exe' and click 'Update now'.


Everytime I open the Sims 3 launcher, a prompt opens like this:

[img][/img]

then if I click 'Cancel' and look at the 'Game Updates' tab, the update is different from the one that is listed on the instructions:

[img][/img]



What should I do now?


Thanks in advance. Very Happy

Hello,

That doesn't matter, just Update. You'll then automatically have the latest version of the Game.

Hi again Smile

So now I'm using the fix using selyo's files.

It says in the instructions:
A).Go to Run and type ( Reg Edit ).
B).Go to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Electronic Arts\sims3]
C).On the Right side you will find a kay called (SKU) Double click on it and edit the Number chose from 2 to 7.

-I found this folder, but all that appears is this (and not the window in which I have to change the number:

[img][/img]

D).You will find a registry Key for each one of the expanstion packs too change the value of SKU if you faced same Error when updateing .
-then I don't quite understand this. If I click on the expansion pack folders in the RegEdit, all that appears is this:

[img][/img]

Which one should I change?

I'm kinda lost now. I don't exactly understand the steps in the Fix after instructing us to download selyo's cracks.

I'm sorry I'm such a newbie. Sad

Thank you again Very Happy

OMG.

I totally did it! I'm so happy it's now working! Hooray! Smile

Thanks for all the help Admin and Yusifer!

YEY!

Last question, in the game launcher, there always appears a window saying that I don't have the latest version of the game. What should I do? Ignore it?


A BIG THANK YOU AGAIN. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Hello,

Have you tried updating it, when it prompts you for it?
If you want to risk reinstalling everything, you could try that.

I tried updating the Sims 3 and this is what appears:


[img][/img]


I've already tried it a few times and it really doesn't work. Here's the update version:

[img][/img]

In a few times a tried playing the game, my laptop crashes. In the middle of the game, it would suddenly stop then a blue screen will appear that says that there has been an error. It has may thing written in it but it happens so fast that I couldn't read the whole text. After that, I would have to turn on my laptop again. Sad
