Un-installed and starting again (Sims 3) [Solved]

Post by jamie_tee on Sat 25 Sep 2010, 21:49

So I have downloaded The Sims 3 base game, World Adventures and Ambitions.

I successfully installed the base game but when i tried to install WA i got an "invalid file" error message. I decided to UN-install everything in case I did something wrong, is there any fix i should be using before i install WA? Also, i read somewhere that during the WA setup you shouldn't follow the instruction that says copy and replace items to the "bin" directory? is this true?

Thanks for the help in advance Smile

Hello,
Your problem can be fixed by install Ambitions expansion.

Follow this step:
1) Uninstall sims 3 base game and other expansion.
2) Reinstall SIMS 3 base game.
3) Install Wa
4) Install Ambition
5) Apply ambitions fix ( read this )

Now try play the WA.
Thanks.

thanks for the reply,

my problem with WA is i cant get it installed, the problems come when i do "step 5" in the installation guide, halfway through the install it gives me the error message "invalid file". Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks.

Ok, may I know, what software are you using to extract the torrent? If you use winzip or anything else. I suggest please use the Winrar. And then try again.

Yes im using Winrar.

"4. Open the 'Crack 2' folder in the '# Crack' file. Copy áll the files in that folder
to: C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and REPLACE them by the existing ones."

For this step, for the "bin" folder, do i merge them together? It doesnt give me the option to replace it.

Thanks.
