Did you restart the launcher after downloading the patch ? Did you ever get a message that it's finished ? Do you have the game open while doing it ?

Did not get a message that it is finished! I restarted a few times yesterday and today because I get error12 mesages while playing or crasshing so I restart the game alot! Did not have launcher open when I got the contentPatch open.

Someone else has the same issue as you. Not sure what is going on.
Have you tried turning off the firewall and antivirus ? Do you have admin rights on your computer ? Make sure the game is closed and only the launcher open when the patch is downloading.

I will try without anti-virus but no when I try to update the game is not running. I usually play only in the evening because the game is to big to go in and out during the day. It is my pc and my own windows 7 and office programs. I am only connected to my son in laws wireless network in the house. I am bedridden with muscular distrophy so always busy on my pc. I am sure it is a mistake on sims 3 origen because I never had this problem.

Here's a thread on the Store Content Patch: http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/614548
I have not had time to read through it but maybe someone else has the same issue and knows more.
I really don't know what else it could be.
Best of luck.

The ONLY way I know to get around this patch (that won't let you click on the yes/no/later button) is to bypass the launcher all together. To do this:
C:/Program Files/Electronic Arts/TheSimsSeasons/Game/Bin/TS3EP08
OR, for whatever expansion you are playing.
Hope this helps, since "gurus" can't be bothered, apparently.
