Re: Issues installing game

@dafanasjevas  Does your Mac run Catalina?  If so, that's why Sims 3 won't install—it's a 32-bit app, and Catalina is 64-bit only.  There's no way around the problem.  But EA has announced a 64-bit-compatible version of TS3, to be released some time in early 2020.  Here's the full announcement:

In the meantime, your only options are to play on another computer, or to install another operating system (i.e. through Bootcamp or a virtual machine) on your Mac.

 

If you only bought the game sometime in the last two weeks, you can ask for a refund.  Here's how:

I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.
