Sims 3 Updated, now asking for disk.[SOLVED]

Post by RainbowChris on Fri 22 Jun 2012, 05:57

Well I updated my Sims 3/Sims 3 Pets with the newest version today and now the game keeps asking me to insert the disk.

I've had these games installed since November last year and had no problems until now, I tried the ultimate fix and it didn't seem to work although I was using instructions (using files from #crack folder and changing them for files in the Game/Bin folder) directed to people who are downloading and updating it for the first time so maybe that made a difference? I don't know enough of about the mechanics of it to know.
I also tried remounting the .ISO images with Virtual Clone Drive and that didn't fix the problem either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, though please remember, I absolutely fail at this stuff so you might have to explain it like I'm clueless.

Hello,

Can you confirm that your current base game version is 1.34? Have a look at your launcher as shown in the image below.
If it is, make sure you have the latest fix, open the #crack folder in the fix and apply those files to the base game\bin.

Yup, just double checked

1.34.27.016017

I tried the fix that you suggested and the .exe file went fine but the .dll file said "You need permission to perform this action"

Yes, I am indeed.

Hmmm...I just tried to put the .dll file in the Bin folder again and it worked just fine O.o

It seems to have fixed my problem, my game started right up no problem.

I wonder why I wasn't able to move the file until now...

Anyways, thank you very much Very Happy
