sims3packs won't install at all

Post by SpyderArachnid on Thu 11 Oct 2012, 17:52

So I'm having an issue with Sims3Packs. They just won't install.

They are all in the proper folder (Downloads) and they are store content and a couple custom content.

I start up the launcher and go to my Downloads section, and it shows them all there. I click install, and it does the little install thing and they all say Success on them. The installer finishes, and they all show up in the Installed Content section.

But as soon as I start the game up, it's as if they never installed. None of the content is in the game at all. I know, cause if I go to new game, none of the worlds show up. And I checked my buy lists and none of the objects are in there either.

So I exit the game, and check the folders, and all the content is in the proper folders. The worlds are in the world folders and all the content I just installed is in the proper folders. So I start the launcher again, and none of my content is in the Installed Content section. It is as if it never installed anything at all.

I cleared my caches, did the whole remove the backup folder and tried a reinstall of all the content again, and nothing. It is saying Success when I install them all, but they are never being installed cause they are not showing up in game. And if I close the launcher and start it back up, it acts as if it never installed anything.

I'm on Supernatural at patch 1.39.3. Like I said, the content is all store content with a couple custom content. I have no idea why it just won't install. It is driving me crazy trying to get this stuff installed, but no matter what I do, nothing will install.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Did the checkbox for "Run without custom content" somehow get checked?

Also want to wonder if you somehow are using a different account to install then to play, like you install with a normal account, but then run The Sims 3 as a Admin account.

Yeah, I made sure the checkbox was unchecked.

And I'm running the game as admin as well as running the launcher as admin.

BUT, I solved my problem. Feel kind of dumb. :p

I was installing too many sims3packs at one time. Guess I was overwhelming the launcher and it just kept screwing it all up.

So I installed them all a little bit at a time, and now everything is working and in game now.
