Uninstall/Install problem...

Post by Auudar on Sat 29 Sep 2012, 05:02

I uninstalled the sims 3 a good while ago because i needed space for other things. Now I'm trying to install it again but it says

The setup has detected that version 1.33.002 of the sims 3 is already installed.

This setup installs an earlier version of the sims 3 ( 1.0.615)

you will have to uninstall the previous version before installing this version.

Problem is.. I have no sims 3 folder, no electronic arts folder. Nothing, would anyone know how to fix this? I'm guessing i have something still on my pc or else it wouldn't do this because i've uninstalled it before and never had this problem.

Hello,

did you restart your PC?
If not, restart it.

Hello,

You may have some leftover registry entries, try a registrycleaner, or find the entries manually. You can use this video to guide you in the right direction.
