Sims 3 game launcher wont update

Hi, I recently just downloaded origin an bought a few new sims games. I know how the sims works (I have been a player for multiple years), but I just got back into it. I bought the Sims 3, and Sims 3 University Life. The Sims 3 downloaded and installed fine. I downloaded the University Life, but when I try to install the game it says, "Please use The Sims 3 Game Launcher and update your version of The Sims 3 before installing this product." So I go to the launcher and try to update the game. When I click on the update button the launcher closes and does not update. I would really like to play my new game, please please help me.

Hey

 

Try installing this patch, it's 1.2 gb so it will take some time, after it's installed you should be able to install the game normally.

Re: Sims 3 game launcher wont update

I have been having the same problem and its really starting to annoy me since I paid 50 bucks to play this game and can't even play it because the update wont apply. Goes through everything and says it works but doesn't update and I have gone through the 3 hours of waiting at least 5 times now. Im getting very frustrated like it wont even work and I didn't even get a chance to install university life yet! I really love the game and wanted to get back into it but this is ridiculous like I paid for the game and it wont even work. Im at the point I want to scream!!!! Any Ideas? Thanks :smileysad:

If you follow up on the EA Help Center and use the search function, you'll find useful info that may help you. I found a page that may help resolve your issues. :smileyhappy:
