Sims 3 Install error "Please insert disk 1 which contains the file blah blah blah." Possible Fix

Post by candicelj1708 on Mon 02 Jul 2012, 01:47

While I was trying to install High End Loft Stuff, I kept getting an error that said "Please insert disk 1 which contains the file Game/Bin/resource.cfg." I didn't know what was up at first, but then I decided to navigate to the folder it was referring to. Resource.cfg wasn't there. So I looked in the .rar to see if it was in there. It was! For some reason, when I unzipped the .rar, that file didn't get copied. So I unzipped it again and it installed fine. I'm just posting this in case other people have this error. It's not always the download! Sometimes its on our end. Make sure you check that this isn't the problem before posting anything. I couldn't post in The Sims 3 PC Fixes forum, so I posted here. I hope it wasn't wrong for me to do so.

Hello,

Thanks for sharing.
However, this problem could be avoided by using winRAR to extract the files.

Thank you so much for this! I did use winrar to extract but I guess it didn't extract everything the first time.

I'm actually having that problem right now trying to install the base game but I think I found my missing file though I'm not sure if it's in the right place. I'm kinda confused and really don't want to mess up anything.

Also there is a "Game" folder that's empty, I'm not sure if it really is or if the files are just hidden from me.

I would really appreciate some help  Oh my... Help
