Re: Can I transfer my Sims 3 Game(plus expansions) to another computer?

★★★★ Novice

I have recently transferred my game from one computer to the next. When I originally bought The Sims 3, I bought it as the Starter Pack with Night Life and High-End Loft. All of my expansions transferred except for Night Life and High-End Loft. With my old computer, it says that Night Life is not installed in Orgins, but when you click the actual game it's self and tab to the "Expansions and Stuff" page, Night Life is in there. How do I go about fixing this?

I am asking for my daughters game. She has changed laptops and is able to get all of the games to transfer and work fine, but how does she get the families she created to transfer? Or is that not possible?

@simsisamazing123  Did you redeem the codes in Origin? Where did you buy the packs?

My husband used to play Sims 3, but is now playing Sims 4, so he passed all his Sims 3 games to me, but I can't register them as my games, because he had registered them as his years ago. Is there a solution to this situation?

@melanieclairet i'm sorry im late but i just had this problem too, but if you have origin, go to your library and right click the game the you want to transfer on your computer and go to where it says move, after that it should download all of it to your computer whether you have a new computer or the same computer. I hope this helped Standard smile
