When I could no longer update and download from the sims 3 store I was pissed and nothing I did worked for my downloader to work anymore. Which also meant I wouldn't be able to add the sims 3 pets. So I found a forum that is helping!! :D You are suppose to first: BACK UP SAVED GAME FILE. Then uninstall each game and expansion pack in this order: (with which ever games you may have if not all) : The sims 3 game, World adventures, High-end loft stuff, Ambitions, Fast lane stuff, Late night, Outdoor living stuff, Generations. Etc...Now what I did at first was install sims 3 right away and it wouldnt run do to some microsoft issue and closed out. So what I did was uninstall it again then disc cleaned my pc ( start-all programs-accessories- system tools-disc clean up) Then I restarted my (windows xp) PC and installed only the sims 3 again. Once it was installed I right clicked the sims 3 game icon and selected run as administrator. (you may not need to do that part) but anyway it worked!! And it asked me right away for a game update. I'm on my 2nd update as we speak. So with you I advise that you update everything with the base game first and once you start to install the other expansion and stuff packs ( Install in order) you should be good to go.
