Sims 3: Not able to install any expansions?

Post by SilverQueen on Tue 04 Sep 2012, 16:47

Hello,
I have installed the sims 3 base game from this site, without applying the #crack folder.
When I wanted to install any othe expansion pack, the setup won't start up.
I had changed my SKU version for World Adventures (which was located in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE SOFTWARE Wow6432Node Sims The sims 3 ) but after failing to install WA, I changed it back, for the next expansion, whithout any luck...
I have tried to reinstall the Sims, but it won't help.
This is the message I get when trying to instal an expansion:


Please help!

//EDIT

my english is a bit lagging though, I'm Dutch

Hello,


Please open the .rar file you downloaded using only WinRar, which can be downloaded from www.games4theworld.org . (If you use any other software than WinRar, like WinZip or 7-zip, the files will get messed up!)
When you've opened the file using WinRar, select áll the files in it and drag & drop them to a folder on your Desktop. When the extraction is done, close the .rar file and open the folder on your Desktop. Now, start by reading the included "# Installation Guide.txt" and you should be able to get the game to work yourself. Good luck!

Ps. Indien gewenst, kan het natuurlijk altijd nog in het Nederlands.

Hello,
I have done everything you said, and the message is gone, but I still can't install any expansion pack or update. I don't know what is wrong this time.

But thank you for the help you already gave me Smile
