View Full Version : How to manually install a patch?
22nd Mar 2012, 07:33 AM
I downloaded a manual patch since my launcher fails to download it every time. It is a .tgz file and I can't figure out what to do with it to apply it to my game. I tried double clicking, and it said "unable to expand, error 1- operation not permitted".
How do I apply it?

If double-clicking a .tgz file says that, either
- you don't have an Archiver program like http://www.kekaosx.com/en/ or
- the downloaded patch is corrupted or incomplete and need to be redownloaded
After installing the Archiver app, double-click the extracted file and then when prompted to select the Sims 3 app, navigate to the Applications/The Sims3 and select the game.

I got it from here:
So it seems weird that the file would be corrupted. Although it sort of looks like you are saying it's not due to a corrupted file but a download that just didn't work for some reason? I will download it again, it took a while =/....
Thanks for the help =)
edit: It worked the second time around. Thanks again.
