Re: the sims 3 monte vista wont open

monte is a world so there will be no shortcut for it , to see if your world installed correctly when you launch your game go to + new game from the menu see if monte vista shows there

I just bought Monte Vista today, and when I went to install it it didn't work. It brought me to the menu, asking if I agreed to the terms, and skipped past a slide,  but when I tried to go back, it went back to the main thing. So It did not ask me for the 20 digit code, and then it just quickly said it was installed. But i can not find it in any of my history's and there is no icon on my screen to click on. However whenever I try to redeem it on the sims site, it asks for a 20 digit one also. However monte vista only has 16 digits. So either way, I can't get the game to work even if it did proceed to go through. What is going on here? Why won't it install for me and why does it only have 16 digits  when they ask for 20 each time? This sucks, please help anyone please. Standard smile
