The Sims 3 : World aventures asks an update, how to do? [SOLVED]

Post by maschera on Tue 26 Jun 2012, 23:01

Hi !

I installed the Sims 3 on my system ; with all expanions... But unable to launch the game properly. So I looked at http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly and I decided to uninstall and reinstall everything.
So here am I. I just installed the Sims 3 base ; now I want to install World Adventures... And when the Installshield Wizard begins it tells me (approximatively, I translate from french) : "setup has detected The Sims 3 have to be updated to be installed"... And I don't have any choice but to accept. I wanted to know if it was ok with the "procedure".

Thank you ! Smile

Hello,

Yes, there's no harm in updating during the installation progress.

Hi,

Thanks you for your answer ! The problem is that when I click on "yes" it loads and eventually tells me it's impossible to update. So I'm stucked. Is it unrecommended to update via the Sims 3 launcher ?

Have a nice day !

Hi ! Thanks you very much. I did it.
The problem is that in this tutorial => http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly you tell that after the intallation of the wished expansions, we had to "update" the game.
The problem is that I already did it before the World Adventures expansion !
So now when I want to start this update, it tells me that my game is already updated, and that if I proceed anyway the update it will copy my Sims 3...

What have I to do ?
Thanks you Smile

Hello,

If your base is at game version 1.34, you shouldn't be asked to update during the installation. You can however get a notice that your base game is a more recent version than the expansion you're trying to install. That's no problem though, you can ignore that message.

Hello,

That particular service initialization error code indicated that you're either using an outdated/incompatible crack, or outdated mods.
