problem with world adventure.[SOLVED]

Post by hstark on Thu 22 Mar 2012, 04:06

i installed the sims 3 base game. did nothing else, didnt patch anything, didnt modify anithing, didnt crack anything.
ive had this problem before following the installation guides.
now ive reinstalled it and as ive said did nothing else but to install.
when i click on sims3ep01setup to install WE it says:

an error has ocurred (-5001 : 0xffffec75) when executing the installation program.
check if you have completed any other installation and close the remaining aplications.
if the error is still happening contact EA

what should i do?
my sku is 7
i have windows 7, fat32 system, but the E (where i install everything, cause the C drive is to little, dont have D drive tho) drive is ntfs because i couldnt download-unrar anything bigger than 4g.

also, im still downloading all the expantions. I have downloaded so far:
base game
WE
HIGH END LOFT STUFF
AMBITIONS
AND ABOUT TO FINISH FAST LANE AND START LATE NIGHT. i dont know if this helps but it wont hurt to say.

Hello,

Make sure nothing related to The Sims 3 is open, so make sure the launcher is closed etc.
If that doesn't do it, it looks like a problem for Admin.
Note that you need at least one of the following expansions: Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff or Generations to patch your game to the last version and apply the fix though.

Hello,

There's no particular order in which you have to install them, It'll work fine.

Hello,

When you install an expansion, its features are added to your existing game. So your save game stays the same.

also, how do i patch the games, because some of the downloads dont come with the updates, and if i update with the game launcher and ea manager when i wanna play it it'll say its not a registered version or pirate version and stuff like that.

edit: another one, do i patch first or apply the fix first?

Hello,

You shouldn't use the patches (or cracks!) that come with the files, they've become obsolete anyway. The best way to update your game is as follows:
-Use the 1.29 superpatch.
-Use either one of these incremental 1.31 patches. Region 2 or 7 should do, you may want to have a look at your SKU version before you decide which one you'll download and that's done as follows:

-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 have a look at the number shown.

After the 1.31 patch, use this manual patch to get to version 1.33.

Hello,

After the superpatch, don't forget to use the 1.31. Then the manual patch.
When you're finished installing everything, apply the crack from the fix.Smile
Good luck, and let us know if you need help.
