Sims 3 Pets won't install

★★★★ Newbie

My Sims 3 Pet expansion pack won't install, because it says I need to install the Sims 3 base game first; but I have! 

I've uninstalled and re-installed theSims 3 base pack twice, made sure its up to date, and yet when I go to intall the Pets expansion pack it says I need to install the Sims 3 base game.

I'm at my wits end, can anyone help?

How did you buy the base game and how did you buy Pets ? On Steam, Origin or DVD ?

 

What's your operating system ?

 

Can you play the base game fine ?

I bought the game and a couple expansion packs last year at future shop on CD. 

They all worked fine on my old computer, but the expansion packs won't install on my new computer (which is running off of Windows 8).

And yes I can play the base game.
