[RESOLVED] - Sims 4 Horse ranch won’t install

[ Edited ]

I'm having a similar issue. On my laptop the DLC I'm able to hit download but it just does an infinite "preparing" wheel and won't actually download. I've tried restarting the EA app. I tried clearing the cache. I tried restarting my device and yet nothing.

Hey all,

Some backend changes were made last night that should help resolve this issue for all affected users. If you are still unable to download Horse Ranch at this time please let me know below so we can take a look. Please remember to also post an EA Error Report ID as they greatly aid us in determining the root cause of these issues. 

If you are still seeing issues installing purchased content at this stage, please reach out to an advisor for assistance at http://bit.ly/EA_Contact_Us

I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.

I have similar issue with my pc. But I think the reason is that everybody tries to download and install it at the same time again. This one could have been phased in at least a little bit. At least it would be less blocked that way.

Newly purchased pack not showing as owned or installable

Hello, 

I just purchased The Sims 4 Horse Ranch Expansion Pack and it is not showing up as owned or in my library at all. I have an order confirmation number and the funds have been taken from my account but no download option for the pack is available. I had a similar thing happen with one of the kits a while back. Is there any way that I can fix this issue?

 

Edit: I just found out that the expansion pack shows up as owned in-game, but none of the content is available to me.
