The Sims 3 CC "Please Make Sure Your Game Has the Latest Software Updates and Try Again" Error's 100% Solution

Post by cagil99 on Wed 12 Sep 2012, 16:01

Most of exchange items not installing via Sims 3 Launcher if you updated your Sims to latest as I experienced Wink
First of all I want to say that I made this guide for xnoirx and I will glad if you can move this topic to tips and tricks.
Have you tried to install a Custom Content to Sims 3 via launcher and it says you:  "Please make sure your game has the latest software updates and try again."? Then you need to decrapify your sims3pack. Here is the link for it. There is a guide inside how to make it. Thank to G4TW! Wink
   You decraped your sims3pack and it still not works, you need to download CC Magic which is powerful CC installer. Here is the link. You need a free account to download it. It needs 3 more programs to get it work. Here is their link:

*Microsoft .NET Framework 4
*Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x86)
*Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64)

Note: You need both (x86) and (x64) to make it work.

   Then install CC Magic, then install these 3 files. Next, you are able to open CC Magic. Copy the sims3pack that you want to install with CC Magic then paste the files to Documents>Electronic Arts>CC Magic>Contents>Sims3Packs. After, open the CC Magic, from now I will explain with pictures Smile

When you open CC Magic, it should look like that :



   Click to enable button at the right top corner of CC to activate it or deactivate.
When you are done, you need to click Rebuild button at the top to make your selected CC's activated in game.



    Now you are done! Your sims3pack succesfullt installed. Now you can start Sims 3 with CC Magic or Sims 3 launcher, it doesn't matter!
If you want to start game with CC Magic, press play button at the top left corner Wink . I hope this guide helped you!

Hello,

This is only for the specific "Please update" error.
If they won't show up, try this: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t2208-sims3pack-installed-world-inaccessible-or-wont-install-fix

Re: The Sims 3 CC "Please Make Sure Your Game Has the Latest Software Updates and Try Again" Error's 100% Solution

Post by Knbursi on Fri 12 Jul 2013, 00:19

I downloaded the Sims 3, seasons, and pets all from Steam.

I stumbled across this website because a few days ago, I noticed that I kept getting an error that says "Please make sure your game has the latest software updates and try again."  

I followed your link and downloaded CC Magic

I've confused myself to no end. 

I first started out and organized my files.  Next, I hit the "Configurations" tab and moved all over my folders over the left to the "Enabled Sets" section.

Next, I hit "Rebuild."

I figured I would hit "Play" next, but it doesn't seem to work.  It just crashes and says I need to close the program.
So, I figured I would play the sims 3 from steam.  I looked in the "Downloads" section and there's nothing there.  Is that because my sims3packs have been moved from my downloads folder to the CCMagic folder?

I'm nervous to play the sims 3 from the original starter.  I don't want to lose everything.

I don't understand what I did wrong..

If anyone could help me out, that would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks!! Smile

EDIT: Also it did not let me download the x86 and x64 downloads. This is what it says:
Please resolve the following:

A newer version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable has been detected on the machine.

Hi there,

Then download the 32-bit version...?
But if you download and install ALL Windows Updates, including the optional ones, you should already have the latest C++ Redistributable Package version.

Hello onip,
Yes it works with .package files, go to Documents>Electronic Arts>CC Magic>Contents and there must be packages folder. Copy all your package files to there it will work fine.

Hi there,

Are those custom stuff in .package format?
If so, this guide is not going to help you, and you need to follow these steps to install .package files correctly: http://www.games4theworlddownloads.org/Downloads/Guides/How_to_install_.package_files.pdf
