update not working using downloaded sims from CD, is it normal? [SOLVED]

Post by shaaznovriann on Thu 10 Jan 2013, 16:39

hello Smile
Some of the sims 3 expansions packs of mine are installed using CD and those that I don't have I downloaded them off of the internet. I wanted to update my game to 1.42 version but a small window popped up "invalid file error". I noticed that my sims 3 base game is installed without the CD (downloaded from the internet) yet the recent sims 3 expansion pack (seasons) I had a CD to install that with. Is it normal for the popup to appear if my base game was originally from the internet, which makes me have to download a manual patch for every update?
thanks again for your help

Hello,

The invalid file error is due to the crack. You may try applying the entire fix if you don't feel like downloading the manual patch.
