A CM will need to look at that.

 

Unfortunately, it being the weekend, you might need to wait till Monday

@hailighrenee There does seem to be something strange going on there, but I think it is an Origin issue. Could you please try the steps in the order below:

  1. Uninstall the EP's you have issues with (go to 'View Game Details' by right clicking the Sims 3 base game tile and the right click the EP tile in Origin client and select 'Uninstall')
  2. Manually uninstall Origin
  3. Run CCleaner
  4. Restart your router/modem and do a Clean Boot
  5. Make sure that your UAC is enabled and set to notify
  6. Download the latest version of Origin and install the client - make sure to run the setup file with Admin rights
  7. Add firewall/antivirus exceptions for Origin and open the needed ports
  8. When starting Origin, please make sure to run it as Administrator

After this try installing the EP's again and check if they show up!

I have been experiencing the same issues as others beforehand and I am currently following the instructions you have posted, I will provide an edit once the fresh install finishes and a simple 'check-and-see' is conducted.

 

EDIT: The fresh installation of The Sims 3 Ambitions has just finished and also checked a 'check-and-see' and according to the launcher it still doesn't show up. The only thing I had running was the origin launcher to install the game faster. Sadly it didn't work.

every single instruction, remove the EP that gave me a problem, uninstalling origin, fresh install of it as admin, then did a reinstall of ambitions and still nothing, it's like origin doesn't want me to have sims 3 ambitions installed.
