How to install The sims 3 without internet connection?

I bought The Sims 3 box wersion and I can't install it because of Origin. It tells me to log in and I can't do it because I don't have internet connection at home. Please help me to solve this problem.

If you have the box version, you don't really need Origin.

 

Try closing it and then installing the game.

When I close it nothing happens. I tried to manually run the installation but every time I did it Origin was opening first.

So when you have Origin closed, the setup does not even start ?

 

(I never had Origin installed on my machine and I was able to install the box version just fine).

Yes, the setup of the game doesn't want to start. Only setup of Origin works.

What OS are you on ? I'm really at loss here.

 

Usually when you put in the DVD, the autorun starts the setup and after you're done installing the game, it asks you if you want to install Origin.

 

I'm going to bed now so maybe someone else can help you.

Re: How to install The sims 3 without internet connection?

I wonder if the setup needs a internet connection (which is really stupid). I never tried offline.

 

Maybe Customer Support can tell you if a Internet Connection is required to install the game or why you are seeing this issues
