Sims 3 Install shield wizard saying update sims 3 failed, setup is unable to continue

★★★ Newbie

:robotsad:

 

I am having problems installing my sims 3 expansion packs onto my base sims 3 game, world adventures says its not the same code to get that one to install I had to regedit and change sku to 2 or 7 for it to work and install, then install shield wizard updated, now late night wont run as it cant find install shields update and says

 

update sims 3 failed, setup is unable to continue,

 

Please help me with the correct install route so I may get to play the game again.

 

This all started when I added world adventure the others use to run just fine!

Hi Jennifer,

 

Please try to update your game manually to the latest patch. Here a tutorial on how to do that:

http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/FAQ-Current-Patch-1-42-Manual-links-and-more/td-p/67858

 

After that you should be able to install the game.

 

Please let us know if that helped!

 

Thanks,

Ursula
