Thread: Unable to Install The Sims 3 on Windows

    Default Unable to Install The Sims 3 on Windows

    Hi guys, I bought Left 4 Dead 2 DVD a couple of days ago but discovered that it was actually Left 4 Dead inside. So I went to the shop to replace the DVD. They didn't have anymore L4D2 DVDs so I brought a DVD of The Sims 3. However, I'm having difficulties in installing this on my computer.

    Inside the DVD, there are multiple .bin setup files. But the setup.exe file only opens a command window and quickly closes; so quickly that I couldn't even see what it showed. This printscreen might help you a bit.

    While it shows there are all the files inside the DVD, I don't understand why I can't install these. It's tiring to go back to shop again and again. So, I'm trying to see if there is any technical fix available. I've tried to install it on Windows but the same problem occurs on every platform. Is it problem with setup.exe? It's only about 138 kilobytes, is there way I can replace it or get it working to install the other 4.14 GB setup files already in the DVD?

    I hope you'll help me out here. Thanks.
    Most of you don't know me. However, a lot of you have discussed about the articles I wrote and visited my blog at least once. Wondering? Well, do you recall these two links?

    Copy the entire dvd into harddisk, then try running the setup.exe from there. Disable antivirus first.
    If it doesn't help, then there's no way I guess.

    I tried that but no luck.

    Why does it always happen to me whenever I buy game DVDs?
