The Sims 3 won't update

Post by alinabueno on Fri 07 Sep 2012, 21:41

I downloaded the base game and the expansions Generations, Late Night and World Adventures from games4theworld and now I tried updating it to the latest version but after a while it stopped and a warning came up. Something like "A file wasn't found" and when I clicked "okay" the update page closed. What's wrong?

I downloaded it exactly how the post told me to and the game is working. I just can't update it to the latest version.

Step 2 is telling you to use the manual patch, which doesn't, that I've ever seen, cause that error.

I downloaded the patch and restarted the computer and it's working. Thank you.
