I have some expansion packs that I wanted to install recently and when I gave it a try, It said that it was updating the game but it stopped and said that it encountered a problem. I was pretty sure that the error was caused by my pc that doesn't have internet connection so I downloaded a update to update my game from v1.0 (default version) to v.1.55.4 but it says:
An error (-5005 : 0x80070002) has occurred while running the setup.
Please make sure you have finished any previous setup and closed other applications. If the error still occurs, please contact your vendor: electronic arts (http://TheSims3.com).
So gave it try if the game works-it didn't it said that:
The installation is incomplete and the simsTM 3 cannot run. Please reinstall and try again.
So I knew that there was only 1 solution- uninstall the game.
But when tried to uninstall the game some weird letters and few numbers came out : 1628
I don't know what language had those letters (looked something like Russian letters but it was not them)
I tried just to 'overwrite' the game ( install sims 3 on the other sims 3)
But it had no results, tried ccleaner to clean my registry - no results
And i think that my pc tries to somehow install the new patch over the Internet.
Any idea how to fix it?
Sorry for bad English
