deleted Sims 3 folder problem reinstalling. [SOLVED]

Post by Fallenkitten on Tue 06 Nov 2012, 03:55

Hi, i was hoping if you could help me with this problem, as you can see i was trying to install the expansion pack sims 3 supernatural and generations then i got impatient cause it was taking too long to finish the installation. so what i did was i uninstalled all the expansion packs. when i got to the base game i got some sort of an error so what i did was i deleted the sims 3 folder . so when i tried to install it again i was having some sort of an error Crying or Very sad , "The setup has detected that version 1.17.060 of the sims 3 us 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.

but when i tried to uninstall the sims 3 from my control panel this error message appears. An error (-5006 : 0x80070003) has occured while running the setup. please make sure you have finished any previous setup and closed other applications. if the error still occurs, please contact your vendor: Electronic Arts. so i dont have any idea what to do anymore please help.

i saw the other problems pertaining to reinstalling the sims but it seems that none of them did what i did so yeah can you please help me with this thank you. Sad Sad Sad Sad

Run ccleaner on your computer, but might need some more help with clearing your registry for the keys related to The Sims 3.

Hello,

You might want to use Your Uninstaller! Pro to (force) uninstall The Sims 3 and all leftover files. You can download Your Uninstaller! Pro from www.games4theworld.org . Don't forget to use the "Super" mode.

After uninstalling everything, restart your PC and reinstall the base game. If you want to add ANY expansion or want to UPDATE the game, you must follow these instructions at all time: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Related to your problem in the other topic you made.

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t8488-unknown-downloaded-seasons-3-installer

Have you tried to re-download it, might be a error and did a non-complete file, so it didn't know what it was, or does it give a extension on it, like .torrent?
