I am having a problem with CC. Some of the things i download show up in game and some things do not.
I am running windows vista 32 bit. I dont know about any patches that I may or may not have.
Out of about 10 downloads (clothes/shoes) I've gotten about 3 things to show up in game (c:/program files/electronic arts/the sims 3/mods/packages) I have had no problems with houses. Can someone please help me?
I have searched the forums, but found nothing that was my "exact" problem.
Edit: I do want to add, I have gone through the process of right clicking the file, properties, security, edit, add, advanced, find now, (my name) then allow full control.
Have you used the Install Helper Monkey? Or how did you setup the \Mods\Packages\ folder?
I dont know about any patches that I may or may not have.
Double-click the Game icon on your Desktop, tell me what you see in the Sims3Launcher screen; the numbers would be in this format: 1.7.9.002001 GameVersion = ?

Are all these 10 in .package file format after you've extracted the contents from a rar/zip file? Or did any come in a Sims3Pack format when you download them?
right-click on the game icon on your desktop
click on the last entry in the menu - "Properties"
in the Shortcut tab, click on the "Open File Location" Button
this should open C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\ or C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 World Adventures\Game\Bin\
do you see a file named "d3dx9_31.dll" in \game\bin\ ?
go up 2 levels to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\ or C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 World Adventures\
do you have a "resource.cfg" in this folder?
can you see the \Mods\Packages\ folder, now?
are the 10 downloads (if they are in .package file format) you downloaded placed in this \Mods\Packages\ folder?
Open the "resource.cfg" file in Notepad, and paste it in your next post, also.

I have downloaded Installer helper monkey.
But before that I went into the sims 3 program files and created the "mods" and "packages" file. And I also did the "resource.cfg" file. Those are all listed under "The Sims 3"
I still did not see anything about the version number, when I launch the game it doesnt show any numbers what-so-ever.
I see the "d3dx9_31.dll" in \game\bin\
Going up to the sims 3 the "resource.cfg" file is listed
Bringing it up in notepad..
All of the files I have downloaded are in ".package" format .. Double checked that.
