Sims 3 installation attempt failed...again.[SOLVED]

Post by DukeOfFisticuffs on Sat 14 Jul 2012, 19:15

Hi, I recently wanted to add some expansions to my game (World Adventures, Ambitions, and Master Suite Stuff to be exact). Well I went to the link http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly-must-read and followed every step to the letter, used the manual patch, then the fix to crack the games. When I start up now it says no disc found. On many previous tries to install I've gotten an error that says read log then shuts the game off. I'm pretty sure I did everything right so I made an account today to finally ask for help

above is an image of my program(x86)/electronic arts/sims3/game/bin.
All help greatly appreciated I am at a loss as of now and don't want to reinstall again. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Unfortunately, the 2 files we'd need to see aren't on this screenshot (TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll).
The good news is that you probably don't have to reinstall. And I don't think I need to see another screenshot.
Please open the fix and look for the #crack folder, and copy both files in there to the folder you're showing here, allowing them to overwrite what's in there.

Right I forgot to scroll down but I did copy the two files from the #Crack folder in the fix to the base games bin folder. That's my problem is that I've already done everything and I can't get the game to work.

Hello,

Ok, can you please show a screenshot of the same folder, but with the 2 files showing?

Hello,

Thanks.
I'm looking at the dates on TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll and they don't match the date on the crack in the fix, which is 7/10/2012.
I think you may be using an old fix, it has been updated a few days ago. You can download it here.

Hello,

Are you logged on as Administrator?
You can also get an error if the launcher or the game is active.
