Re: I can’t use what I buy

@cidmery89  I take it you've bought content from the Sims 3 Store?  Try installing them into a clean game folder, just to test.  Move your entire Sims 3 game folder out of Documents\Electronic Arts and onto your desktop.  Open the launcher to spawn a clean folder, then install just one small item from the store.  Start a new save and see whether that item appears in-game.  If it does, try installing the world.  If that works too, you can install the rest of your content in small batches, no more than six items at a time—the launcher doesn't handle large amounts of data very well.

 

Once all of your store stuff is installed into the new game folder, you can move your saves and other content into the new folder from the old one.  Here's an explanation of everything you'll find in that folder:

If you install a store item in a clean game folder and it doesn't appear, please let me know which item it is, and what browser you used to install it.
