I have become extremely fustrated I recently purchased Katy Perry's Sweet Treats expansion game from Origin and when I went to install it my Sims launcher said that I needed to update the Sims 3 base game ,in which i try to do so but my laucnher said it was unable to connect to Origin. I have tried everything from unstalling all my games, uninstalling Origin and reinstalling them all. I checked to make sure all my ports were open and that my firewall wasn't blocking anything. Please help

This happens to me about once every month or so. (trust me it's the biggest pain in the butt ever.) All you can really do is to reinstall EVERYTHING.

Alright, I just figured this out. Pretty simple. Doesn't involve re-installing everything. That's just moronic. All you have to do is go under your my documents, where is saves the games, should be something like this

\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3

There should be a bunch of files in there. Most are useless and can be deleted, but before you do that take the folder "Saves" and copy it. Paste it on your desktop.

After go back to this folder

\Documents\Electronic Arts\

and delete the "The Sims 3" folder.

Start you game and it should load just fine now. Take the "Saves" folder you put on your desktop back in there and everything should be working now. Quick and simple solution.
