expansion packs wont play after reinstall

★★ Newbie

I hate origin so I uninstalled my sims 3 and all expansion packs. after reinstalling only my base game will play. I did not purchase my expansion packs through origin and don't understand because they worked fine until I went through origin. now im using discs and its like my expansion packs aren't there. PLEASE HELP!! I am on windows 7 and all system requirements are above grade. I hate origin. any advice would be appreciated.

Re: expansion packs wont play after reinstall


What is your base game version right now ?

Open the launcher and check the number in the lower left corner.

If you're not at 1.63, please update your game.

Good Luck and Happy Simmin
