Okay, no need to get mad or frustrated Smile

If you followed the directions in the Ultimate Fix then hopefully you have a backup of the original un-cracked files. Copy them back to the Bin Directory(s) and over-write the cracked files (select Copy and Replace).

Now try launching the game. If it launches great, now you can install the 1.36 patch (either manually or with the game loader) and your EP/SP(s). After the game is fully patched and you have installed all the EP/SPs you want, then follow the directions for installing the Ultimate Fix and everything should be running smoothly.

If the game still wont launch after copying the original files back you can try uninstalling the last EP/SP installed, restarting and then launching the game. The Pets expansion does have a minor tendency to get corrupted during install, but uninstalling and then re-installing Pets usually fixes the problem.

Also make sure that you dont have any mods while updating and installing EP/SPs. Simply move them to a temporary folder and once your done installing evrything, move them back one at a time.

Hello,

No need to replace the files, just install the v1.36 manual patch and that one will replace everything with the original files.
Conclusion: please re-do step 2 to 5: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
DO NOT skip any steps!

Hello,

As for the message that the Sims 3 isn't installed properly, are the games you installed with an original disc separate games or a "deluxe" version?
