Hello,

It doesn't really matter where you got your games from, as long as they're not modified installers there shouldn't be any problems.

Here's a guide that explains how everything is installed, but if you have more questions, please ask.
Note that after uninstalling The Sims, your pc has to be restarted before you can successfully reinstall.

Hello,

Will you install all the expansionpacks? If you are, I recommend starting with Master Suite stuff so your game will be at patch level 1.29. It doesn't really matter in which order you install the expansions, but this will make it easier in the long run.
After that, get the 191mb 1.31 patch here (Region 2 - Worldwide) and install it.
Now you can start installing all your other expansions in no particular order.
You don't have to use any cracks and it's not recommended to use any. Apply the fix, and when you get to step 11, use the manual patch instead of the launcher to update.

Edit: Yes I'm still here Smile just making lunch.

Hello,

Yes Master Suite stuff is a stuff pack, and extra something you can install.
Please let us know the result and don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

Hello,

The install directory doesn't play a part in this, I assure you. I have everything on D: myself.
Ok so we change the SKU version for the region 7 patch. It goes like this:

-Open "Start", type "regedit" in the search box and
then press [ENTER].
-When you're in the Register Editor, navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Sims > The Sims 3 OR IT MAY BE IN:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Sims > The Sims 3 (Windows 7, Vista)

-Here you'll see a file called "SKU". Double click on it and change the value -to 7 and press "OK". Now close the Register Editor.

Then you should be able to use the region 7 patch.

Hello,

Check the registry again to make sure that you did, or try one of the other patches, though I'm quite certain that either the region 2 or 7 should work.

Hello,

Did you apply the crack at all when you installed the base?

Hello,

No that was right since you shouldn't apply the crack.
What's the current SKU version, can you take a screenshot of the registry with the SKU open?

Hello,

Ahh I see the problem Smile My bad actually Facepalm I'm so sorry.
Go back to this site and get the 1.29 superpatch first. The download link is in the red box. Install that patch, and then continue on with the 1.31 patch.

Hello,

You mean the Ultimate Fix?
If yes, just open the Ultimate Fix' .rar file using WinRAR (No other software!) and then read the included "# Installation Guide.pdf", which can be opened using Adobe Reader.
