Did you install the base game? If so, where did you install it?

Hello,

In order for the expansions to work, you need the The Sims 3 base game.
You can download it from www.games4theworld.org ; it's called "The Sims 3".

Please create your own topic. It makes it easier to solve the problem, and to keep everything straight. Smile

The one thing I found out is that when I installed it via Origin, it didn't show up in the Program and Features - Add or Remove Programs, which could be the reason why Windows doesn't think it's installed, so when I installed the Base game from here it showed up in said program and the error message never appeared, could be something worth looking at and trying out.
