Invalid File Error for Update! [SOLVED]

Post by lovesims7 on Thu 30 Jun 2011, 11:10

After reading the FIX installation guide, I decided to try it out. However, on step 11 when I proceeded to update through the sims launcher, I get an error msg saying Invalid File Error! Can someone please help me??
I've got these expansions downloaded in this order:
Base game, Ambitions, Late Night, Generations

I didn't apply cracks to them individually until the end after downloading generations. I used the cracks from the FIX file btw. Please help! It's so frustrating! Sad SadSad

Hello,

Please read the included "# Installation Guide.pdf" VERY CAREFULLY on where exactly to put which file. If you put the correct files in the correct folders, you won't get that error.
Also note that the The Sims 3 Generations original file also goes to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin AND NOT TO C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 Generations\Game\Bin

I re-installed everything and now it works! Very Happy
The thing I did differently was that I didn't place cracks into any file, and only used the crack folder at the end. That was what I was confused about WhatDidUJustCallMe?
AND. can I now delete the folders that I unzipped for each game or will that mess with the game?

Hello,

Yes, you can delete the unzipped files.
If you delete the .rar files you downloaded, you can't seed the files any more, please note that. For now, please let me know if you have any more problems and have fun playing!
