Sims3Packs won't install! [SOLVED]

Post by uzi978 on Wed 05 Sep 2012, 22:25

Hello there,
I recently re-installed Sims 3 & all the EP and SPs up to Diesel Stuff, updated it to 1.36 (actually had to do this before I could get World Adventures installed) and am having a problem getting Sunlit Tides installed. I double click the Sims3Pack file, the launcher opens, bitches that it cannot connect to Origin (I never let it install the Origin Updater), and then does nothing. I tried opening the Sims3Pack while the Launcher was already open, and it still just sits there and does nothing. Not sure what I'm missing here, but any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!
Scott

EDIT: Actually, no Sims3Pack files will install, it's not just Sunlit Tides. Wondering if there's something wrong with the launcher?

Well, since I posted this, I ended up installing the Origin thing, that didn't help. I tried updating to 1.38, that failed because of a missing file error. I tried copying the Sims 3 base files back over, that didn't work... and I got confused copying base files/crack files, and ultimately started over. I installed the Sims 3 base game, updated to 1.36, then from 1.36 to 1.38, that worked. Now I'm going to reinstall all the expansion and stuff packs and see what happens. Hopefully I'll be able to install Sims3Packs once I'm done all that. What a pain!

I dunno, I was having this problem before I even installed the 1.38 patch.

Try copying the sims3packs to the downloads folder My Documents/Electronic Art/The Sims 3/Downloads then run the launcher.
