Sims3pack files in download folder not showing in launcher?[SOLVED]

Post by xxxvlfxxx on Tue 28 Aug 2012, 14:53

I've been using custom content for many years & luckily have had no real problems. Over the years I have downloaded lots of custom content which I hardly use so I thought it was time for a clean up, unistalling all custom content.

So all custom content is uninstalled. I have now downloaded a few items placing them in my downloads folder, but when I open the launcher only a few items appear? Why won't the other items show up? Never had this problem before.

I can install the content by individually clicking on each one but it's annoying having to do it for every one

Help would be appreciated Smile

Before you uninstall all your sims3pack files copy the save folder (My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Saves) to a safe place like the desktop. Then, when you have re-installed the sims3packs you can copy the folder back and your save games will all be there.

I followed all steps but it still isn't working correctly. If I copy 5 downloads into the downloads only 3 of them will show in the launcher?

Not sure what else to do
