You have to buy sims 3 and download before you can get expansions.

Ugh! I'm having this same problem! If anyone figures out how to do it, email me at [email protected]
I have an ASUS and it used to work, then we had to go get the computer worked on and everything was removed from it. Now it wont show up to install or anything!

Manually uninstall Sims http://help.ea.com/en/article/manually-uninstalling-the-sims-3/ if using origin.

Next, Go to Program Files/Origin Games/The Sims 3/

Right click Sims3Setup and choose to run it as administrator.

Once it has installed for to Origin Games/Sims/Game/Bin

If there is a file named Sims3Launcher.ex_ change the name to Sims3Launcher.exe do the same if there is a file named TS3.ex_.

Now right click on Sims3Launcher and run it is administrator.
