Installed The Sims 3, but now Origin wants to install it. What do I do?

Post by TheFxllenAngel on Mon Jan 07, 2019 4:46 pm

I recently downloaded The Sims 3 Complete Collection and I just finished installing the base game. After it installed Origin opened up and asked me what language I wanted The Sims 3 in (as if it was trying to install it on there as well). Do I press cancel or do I go ahead and choose my language and install it on Origin as well? I'm leaning more towards not installing it on Origin cuz I'm pretty sure they'd be able to detect if it was torrented or not. If it helps any, I do have The Sims 3 legit as well, but I uninstalled it so that I could install the complete collection. Just wanna know what to do before I move on to the expansions

Welcome to the Forum,

I think the wording of what you seem to be encountering is "Do you want to install EA Downloads Manager - Yes No". If that is the case, you can choose "no", and proceed with your installation normally.

If you encounter a different message, please screenshot it or post the exact wording here. Smile
