cannot update and the manual patch won't work either (1.42)

Post by terabri on Sun 04 Nov 2012, 17:01

Hi!

I updated the game to 1.42 and the game won't start. So I downloaded the new ultimate fix that is compatible with 1.42, do all the steps carefully, but when I tried to update the game, it just won't work. It install the game, but then it shows an error. I downloaded the manual patch, and it doesn't work either.
I am using windows 7 64 bit and have all expansion except outdoor living stuff. Before I can play the game just fine, until the update.

Please help Sad

Thanks in advance!

First Edit and not double post.

You didn't link to a image, you linked to a webpage.

Code:
I get the error message as below from the manual patch:

But the subject, have you tried to re-download the Manual patch? Or run it as Admin.

Hi,

Sorry for the double posting.
Yes I have tried both, but nothing happens Sad

I tried to restore my computer to the point before I download the patch, but unfortunately I forgot to create a restore point at that time, and now I was left with the restore point from last year.

Anything else I can try?

Thanks.

Hello,

Please try re-downloading it using a different browser.
Do not use any "restore points" to recover the manual patch.

Do not interrupt the download during the process either.

Hi,

Sorry, was quite busy with work lately that I had not done anything with the sims. But I tried to re-download it last night, and it still won't work Sad

*UPDATE*

Hi, so after several times trying I manage to update the game, and so it loads and all.. I can play but the game keep on crashing :'( So, after around 15 mins playing it will suddenly stop working and I have to close without saving the game.. This is my fourth time have to restart the game and lose all the progress.. Help..

Thanks in advance!
