Origin download for Sims 3 won't install my game.

I bought the instant download for 3 expansion packs, but when I try to install them I get a pop-up saying, "Setup has detected that The Sims 3 is corrupt or not properly installed. Setup is unable to continue." I downloaded them all on my old lapptop without any problems, how can I fix this?

Did you install it before ? Maybe it did not download properly. Try re-downloading.

 

Also check if you alread have anything Sims 3 on your computer (search)

Re: Origin download for Sims 3 won't install my game.

I installed it once on my old computer, but when that broke I tried to download and install the expansion packs onto this computer. I have the Sims 3 base game, High End Loft stuff, World Adventures, Fast Lane, Ambitions and Outdoor Living installed on this computer and I didn't have any problems until I tried to install these expansion packs. When I now try to access the launcher, I have a pop-up stating "There was an error during startup. Please see the Log for more details."

Re: Origin download for Sims 3 won't install my game.

Did you uninstall the existing one before you installed the new one ? If not, I would suggest doing so. Use CCleaner to clean your registry after uninstalling.

 

Here are some threads on the error log issue
