getting message during season installation: "Error reading game files: $INSTALLVOLUME/Support/Readme/es/Léeme.txt"

Post by iamthewalrus on Sun 30 Dec 2012, 06:36

I'm having some problems with installing seasons on my macbook.
Now the interesting thing is that I have successfully upgraded the patch to 1.42, and the game runs flawlessly with said patch- when I saw this, I was super excited, because I had a good feeling that since I had finally updated the patch that I could try to install Seasons.

Now here's the snag.

I successfully downloaded the .rar file, mounted it successfully using stuffit expander and disk utility.
The installer will open and I give it the crack serial code provided in the installation.txt file.
It then goes to begin the installation progress, only to immediately throw this message onto the screen: "Error reading game files: $INSTALLVOLUME/Support/Readme/es/Léeme.txt" before quitting and throwing me a crash report that says basically: "BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)"
I've tried installing Seasons in Safe Boot, with the same results.

I'd like help in figuring this problem out, as it's really making me feel inferior, lol.
But right now, to start the troubleshooting process- I'm redoing the .rar file download and the mounting again to see if something got corrupted during the stuffit expander part or the being moved to the mountable dmg. file.

EDIT:
I got the same results with the new seasons dmg.file, so I snooped around inside the files to see if there was anything strange going on, since I keep getting the error message about the Support/Readme/es/Léeme.txt, I went into said support file and I saw this: LÇeme.txt .
Could that be the answer as to why I get that error message?

This is a common problem

There's a solution in this post:

"The file in question simply has an incorrect symbol. Replace the symbol after the L and before the e with é (copy and paste that symbol if you need to) and save the change, then the install should work. Mine did!"

Im having the same problem but for some reason that fix isn't working for me. I keep getting the same message even after changing the symbol.

Is the path in the error message the exact same path as in the error above? Could you copy the error message for us and whatever the crash report says?

"Error reading game files: $INSTALLVOLUME/Support/Readme/es/Léeme.txt"

I'm not sure what part of the crash report to copy though? Seems a little lengthy to paste all of it here.

Hm... Are you using Stuffit Expander to unzip your files and creating a .dmg with them, as per the mac installation guide?

Yep. I did the Seasons, Katy Perry Sweets, Supernatural, and Diesel Packs at the same time using the same method. Seasons is the only one that isn't working.

And you have made sure the "L" is capitalized? The file name has got to look exactly like what the error message says. (I know this is redundant, but I have to make sure Razz)

You can try redownloading the installer, to see if that gets rid of the data corruption. Just make sure to empty your trash after you delete your old installer.

Also, you can try just deleting the whole support folder to see if you can get around the issue (and if that doesn't work, redownloading the installer.)

I'll keep looking into this; I've found very little information so far unfortunately as you can probably tell Crying or Very sad

Hello! Did you find a solution ? I have the same problem when trying to install the kit 70s, 80s & 90s Stuff . I renamed the file and it's still not working!

Hello,
It should be in Sims 3 Pets' Support Folder or you should check every single file until finding it. And follow this post: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t11119-error-reading-game-files-installvolume-support-readme-es-leemetxt-fix
