Sims 3 will not update through origin.

★ Novice

So I have the Sims 3, and the expansion packs supernatural and pets. For a different reason, I uninstalled the Sims 3 base game and the expansions, and have recently installed the Sims 3 base game again. It won't let me reinstall the expansion packs because it says I need to update my game. So i try to update my game, and it will download, but it says i still need to update my game even after i have tried to install it. I have tried updating through the internet and the sims 3 game, to no avail. What do I do?

Use the super patch if you have issues with that.

Re: Sims 3 will not update through origin.

I'm having pretty much the exact same problem. I've already tried the manual patch since that was honestly the only solution I could find. But, when I opened it in the Admin account, it gave me a message saying "Couldn't detect any installed version of Sims 3" which is weird, because I just bought and installed The Sims 3. I have Windows 8 (64 bits) and I did search to see if it was compatible. It said it worked for lots of people with windows 8. I tried repairing the game too, but that didn't work either. Can anyone suggest anything I can do?!

Pictures show proof.
