Hello and welcome to the G4TW Forums @aturchomicz,

What does the error message exactly say, can you replicate a screenshot or just post the text wording here? Because 1.67 cannot be "too high", as it is the last normal patch available for the game. The only other patch is 1.69, only available through Origin. The 1.69 patch is NOT needed, and in fact I do not recommend using it at all.

Can you try ignoring that "error message" and just continue with the installation?

Hold up, what exactly are you trying to install? An expansion or stuffpack?

Because from the screenshot it looks like for some reason you are trying to re-install (?) the base game, which is not needed? Or maybe you had the base game installed earlier on that computer, and it was not properly un-installed?

Please clarify what exactly you are trying to do. Smile

You will in that case have to resort to manually un-installing any remaining files/folders/registry entries. I've written this piece here, a while back:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t19018-un-installing-the-sims-3-a-reference-guide

But I'm sure with some search you can find other guides on the internet as well. But basically, the manual procedure is always the same, no matter where the guide is posted.

You mean that website where you can download "Your Un-installer Pro"? That's the old website. And yes, you should unblock it. I cannot tell you how exactly to do it, look around the available options. Feel free to do a search on the internet.

But since you did not actually install any of the items, you can also proceed to the part where you need to manually remove/delete the stuff.

Ok thanks that worked! Now how do I install the rest of the Store Collection? When I put the 4 folders into the "The Sims 3" folder and then open up the launcher it only displays all the worlds plus their special items but not the rest of the normal Store items

Let's keep all discussions in only one thread (I'll delete your new post, shortly).

Not so sure what could be the problem. Have you tried installing an expansion or stuffpack, in addition to your basegame? Did you then also apply the 1.67 manual patch and Ultimate Fix, as outlined here?

Ok so the last problem seems to be that the game just gives me an error on Start up saying that it cant connect to the License Servers, how do I fix this?

Honestly, not sure what's going on. You didn't directly say so, but I assume for now that you actually downloaded these expansions from G4TW. If that is the case, you have .rar files, tjhat are to be extracted with WinRAR. Please make sure to extract each DLC (expansion/stuffpack), into a separate folder, and then start the installation of each DLC, from each folder separately.

Also, I don't recommend that you choose a custom location for installing these items, for this reason here.

As for the licence server thing, you MUST install at least one expansion or stuffpack, in addition to the base game, after which you must utilize the "Ultimate Fix" as outlined in the guide that I linked, in my previous reply. I also recommend that you start the game with the TS3W.exe, located under C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

If you start the installer of an expansion or stuffpack, then it will automatically go under C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts.

That means, you did not install properly, but that's OK. Please understand that at this point I can't really help further here. If you absolutely want to play a cracked (free) Sims 3 game, then purge your current installation again, and grab a new torrent here:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t53-all-games4theworld-downloads#

Under the section The Sims 3, if you like, grab the torrent "The Sims 3 - The Complete Collection (new version with all-in-one installer)". This torrent used a modified all-in-one installer, that will hopefully work better for you. Smile
