Problems installing Expansions

Post by michellecat87 on Tue 04 Sep 2012, 19:23

I have already purchased the Sims 3 base game. I downloaded the expansion packs. When I went to install them without using the cracks, It gave me this error (I read about the ultimate patch.)



> SetupNew\setuop.cpp (140)

PAPP:

PVENDOR:

PGUID:

$15.0.0.498

@Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (7601)

IE Version 9.0.8112.16421



Does anyone know what this means. I am running Windows 7.

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!

I used winrar. When I start using the cracks it works fine until crack 3 where it says

" The setup has detected that the installed game region for this update is incorrect. This update requires a different game region in order to be installed"

If i just go to the setup I get the error message I posted earlier.

Hello,

You may skip the "# Crack" folders, all of them.
Only use the "# Crack" that comes with the Ultimate Fix.
