Hi,

There is an order in which you have to install the exansions:

1 The Sims 3 Base Game
2 The Sims 3 World Adventures Expansion Pack
3 The Sims 3 High End Loft Stuff
4 The Sims 3 Ambitions Expansion Pack
5 The Sims 3 Fast Lane Stuff
6 The Sims 3 Late Night Expansion Pack
7 The Sims 3 Outdoor Living Stuff
8 The Sims 3 Generations Expansion Pack
9 The Sims 3 Town Life Stuff
10 The Sims 3 Pets Expansion Pack
11 The Sims 3 Master Suite Stuff
12 The Sims 3 Showtime Expansion Pack
13 The Sims 3 Katy Perry Sweet Treats
14 The Sims 3 Diesel Stuff
15 The Sims 3 Supernatural Expansion Pack
16 The Sims 3 Seasons

(correct me if i'm wrong)

So for example: if you have The Sims Pets Expansion Pack installed, you might not be able to play, or even install The Sims Ambitions.

If you want to play ambitions, you have to uninstall the previous expensions first (again, correct me if i'm wrong).

Hope it helps,

J


// EDIT

t2sink is right, that was the issue before version 1.22.9 so if you're version of the game is up to date, forget I've wrote this.

It should be fine, what is the error that it won't let you install?

No, there is no required order for installing them, you can install whatever, and then later install whatever other ones.

Have the .rar you downloaded with your torrent client, extract it only with WinRAR, and run the setup.exe file inside of it.
