I guess you should uninstall the base game, restart your computer and start all over again but now install it to C drive.

Why can't you install it on the C Drive then? Isn't there enough space or something? You also can change the files from school to the D drive, because the D drive is a bit smaller (in most of the times).

Hello,

During the installation of the expansions just choose "Custom Installation". This way you can select where (which drive / folder etc.) you want to install the expansion/game in. Good luck!

I did, and when it install, it gives me CRC ERROR. I have 3 option : abort, ignore or retry. I click retry (spam) and it didn't continue to install the installation pack.

Hello,

I've been doing some research on this error.
Please turn your PC off and restart it in Safe Mode. Now, install the game, restart your PC in normal mode and see if it works.

Hello,

Right after starting up the PC, press [F8] to enter an options menu. Choose "Run Windows in safe mode".
Usually it's [F8], but it may be some other key for your laptop. Just try [F8] first.

Hello,

No, they certainly 'aint keeping track of that. It always gives that message when you use a crack on the game, but it's normal. You can't do anything about it, but it isn't effecting your gameplay either. Is the game working now?

Please open your own topic next time. Install all the expansions you like, including the músts: Late Night and Outdoor Living Stuff. When you've installed them all, just apply this fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-latest-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems

It should all work fine now. If you have any more problems, please open a new topic, so I can guide you there.

Hello,

Yes, sorry, my bad. Have you tried doing a complete clean installation of the game? It usually fixes lots of problems.
To do a clean installation, please do exactly as following:

1. Completely uninstall The Sims 3 + All expansions + CC + DLC etc.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Install The Sims 3 base game, but DO NOT APPLY any cracks!
4. Install any other expansions you like, but DO NOT APPLY any cracks!
5. Install Late Night, but DO NOT APPLY any cracks!
6. Install Outdoor Living Stuff, but DO NOT APPLY any cracks!
7. Now, apply this fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-latest-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems
8. Should work fine now. Please get back to me with the results below.

Hello,

To be really honest, I don't have a fix for it at the moment. You could try doing some research on Google.
Are you using CC and / or DLC's?

I'm really sorry,

Hello,

I mean CC and DLC's (Custom Content and/or Downloadable Content).

If you like, as a last solution, I can try to do a completely clean installation for you and reinstall everything exactly as it should, via TeamViewer. Usually that should do the trick...

Hmm, yeah. That ís a possibility.

I don't use DLC or CC's.

Maybe we can talk easier via msn or something, via this forum is irritating.

Hello,

Yes, please add Games4theworld@hotmail.com . When you've done so, please log in to MSN and give me your e-mail via a PM, so I know who to start a chat with. If you have the time now, I start now.

//EDIT

Usually I'd have done this via our Live Support on www.games4theworld.org, but you may have already seen that that one is "Dead".
