No Game>Bin Folder?! [SOLVED]

Post by haarlow on Wed 21 Nov 2012, 02:52

So I have a purchased version of the Sims Base Game off of Origin, and I've downloaded&installed a Sims 2 complete collection a while back & read the "how to install sims 3 correctly" thus confirming I've done the whole process to the point I'm at correctly. I'm fairly familiar with it now. I was trying to install Sims 3 Seasons earlier today but it came to a halt because I have no Game/Bin folder. I've checked in both Documents and x86, could it be because I have the base game off origin or something? If I click the Sims 3 Seasons shortcut on my desktop it will take me no further than the launcher where it says "disc authentication failure, no disc found". If I click TS3EP08 in the bin folder of Sims 3 seasons it will actually open the game but give me the same disc authentication failure error in-game. I've looked for help on my issure on here and possibly every forum on the planet, and i've tried all these fixes and manual updates. Nothing works, please help Sad

ps My biggest issue I think is that I have no Game/Bin folder. Every thread I've seen with people on the same issue say in a few posts later "nevermind, I found it!"

Hello,

The common cause of Disk Authorization Failure is missplaced crack or outdated ultimate fix

The Game folder is in Origin(or Origin Games)/The Sims 3/ Game/ Bin Very Happy

There's no sort of Sims 3 Folder in my Origin folder, and yes I have no actual location to put the crack therefore causing the disc authorization failure Sad

Sims 2 complete collection? you mean 3 right? And with that, how did they install the expansions, did you manually have to install each one, or did a you click a file, and waited for it to finish, and it was all done?

So C:\Program Files(x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 3 doesn't exist? or something on those also.

No I mean 2, I'm just saying the installation process of sims 2 expansions was the same as the installation of the sims 3 expansions, with the exception that sims 2 required mounting an iso & sims 3 only needed a setup to run.

Ahh yes that worked!! I was looking in an origin folder but I didn't notice origin games. I don't know why I couldn't find it when I searched for keyword 'bin', but I put the crack in the origin games folder and it worked perfectly Smile thank you so much! i owe you one Smile
