Sims 3 generations installation error

Post by zygirl on Sun 05 Jun 2011, 17:30

Currently receiving this error
Error Code: -5006 : 0x80070002
Error Information:
>SetupNew\setup.cpp (630)
PVENDOR:Electronic Arts (
@Windows XP Service Pack 3 (2600)
IE Version: 7.0.5730.13

Tells me to make sure I have finished any previous set ups and closed other applications, tells me to contact the Electronic Arts vendor if that does not solve the problem.

I have tried restarting, etc... Never had a problem like this before.

Any help would be appreciated.

This should fix your problem;

Please open the .rar file you downloaded using only WinRar, which can be downloaded from . (If you use any other software than WinRar, like WinZip or 7-zip, the files will get messed up!)
When you've opened the file using WinRar, select áll the files in it and drag & drop them to a folder on your Desktop. When the extraction is done, close the .rar file and open the folder on your Desktop.
Now, start by reading the included "# Installation Guide.txt" and you should be able to get the game to work yourself. Good luck!
