detailed install instructions needed--sorry!

Post by cakelies on Sun 21 Oct 2012, 23:17

I have read the PLEASE READ, please do not direct me to that page.

I am attempting to install basegame and all expansions. thus far I have downloaded and installed Basegame. i did not apply the crack or open it or download the download manager, i just ran the disks so i think thats right so far.

I have the torrents for world adventures, late night, and ambitions finished. the other expansions are queued. Is there a corect order to install them in? i unzipped world adventures but the install guide says things about the cracks and the "please read"page says no cracks so i dont know how to install these games. I'm sorry that I'm not getting this, but i really have no idea which instructions to follow as it seems the 'read me' included in the torrent contradicts with the 'please read' page but the please read page gives no install instructions whatsoever it just says 'install and then apply the fix'

detailed instructions from this point would be very much appreciated. thank you and im sorry.

Hello,

You need to follow the "Please read" . Do not apply any cracks from the downloaded files. The only cracks you will you need in the Ultimate Fix.. If you need more help you can find me in the chatbox.

When I did my several installations of The Sims 3, I installed the base game, then added each expansion, opening the #Installation Guide long enough to grab a Keycode, once a expansion finished, I moved to the next one, once I finished all the expansions I download, I downloaded the latest Ultimate Fix, and applied that.

Cracks mean just edited files, normally ones that remove the check for CD's/DVD's.

You manage to install the Base Game then right? But after that you try to install a expansion, and when you click on the expansions file's .exe you get the error?

I say try to Manually Patch it up to 1.39, and see if that fixes your issues of not being able to install the expansions.

rajalves beat me to it.

Hello there,

Indeed, with skipping the "# Crack" folders, we mean skipping the parts of the instructions that require you to use any of the "# Crack" folders. Just install the games without doing anything else.

As for the update error, please do the "Must read" instructions in this order: 2, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Good luck and please let us know the result!
