Urgent! - can't uninstall Sims 3 properly and game won't run. [SOLVED]

Post by BewareXmelody on Mon 10 Dec 2012, 15:31

:newfag: Right so basically, I was having fun installing the game then the WA expansion, but after installation it said it wouldn't work, the solution online said I had to have one on the latest packs installed so I installed seasons, and supernatural and was about to install late night when it said I had to uninstall the game and expansion packs, (so I deleted all the files since there was no uninstall button), shut down my computer then reinstall it but it no longer runs the start disk to install, Help I really wanted to install all the packs but each installation guide is different, could someone give me a list as to the order I should install expansion packs and stuff packs after they help me get is running again Sad thank you

First you'll need to remove the leftover registry entries, CCleaner and it's registry cleaner should do the trick. If you don't, you might run into problems when trying to play later on.

Here I'll do how I recommend/manage to do it.

1. Install Base game.
2. Manual Patch to latest version (1.42) or can install the latest expansion/stuff pack (Seasons since it's does update the game to 1.42)
3. Install the rest of the Expansions, Ignoring the #Installation Guide.txt except for the Serial Code.
4. Download+Apply the Latest Ultimate Fix (1.42)
