Hello,

What if you right-click and "open with..", then choose the launcher?

Hello,

What do you mean, nothing else happens?
What if you click on the ">" (play) icon? Does the launcher close?

Hello,

The item does install, but it just won't show a thumbnail (preview) of the item?

Hello,

It should just open with the launcher. Two things you can do:

1. Double-click it and choose a program to open it with. Open it with the The Sims 3 launcher, found in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\

OR

2. Copy all the .Sims3Pack files you want to install to this folder: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads\ and then open your game's launcher and navigate to the "Downloads" tab. Click "Select all" and then "Install".


Good luck!

Do the items appear in game? There is a known issue that sometimes items that aren't showing as installed in the launcher are in fact installed in the game. If this is what's happening to you then I'm afraid there isn't much you can do about it as a fix hasn't been found yet.

Hello there,

Reinstalling everything probably won't do either.
Have you tried this:

And as a last resort you can also try this: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t2208-sims3pack-installed-world-inaccessible-or-wont-install-fix
