The Sims 3 Update Problem
« on: 2010 January 28, 20:38:43 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I'm trying to update 1.0.631.00002 to the lastest version of Sims 3.
But it says the ''Game\Bin\HelpPages\DAN_DK\Help_Updates.html'' file is invalid.
Please help!

Delete everything and reinstall clean.

Delete all your folders so that nothing is left behind for when you reinstall.  Then, everything will be installed fresh and new. Thus, it's called a clean install.  This *is* something you could have used the forum search for, by the way.

Googling the invalid file also brought me to a link in this forum.
I stand by my statement that some people find searching to be too hard. Especially not googling what "clean reinstall" might mean.

I'd suggest getting CCleaner also, but I don't know if that's considered too hard either.
But at least s/he is "humble" enough not to capitalize "I."

Google can sometimes be hit or miss.  Before posting, I searched for Game\Bin\HelpPages\DAN_DK\Help_Updates.htm and Help_Updates.htm + "Sims 3" and got nothing but torrent sites that I didn't think was worth sorting through.  Help_Updates hits the nail on the head though.  The OP probably would have had better luck using the forum search box, but if that was suggested, he'd probably give the same "What i got? NOTHING!" response.

Then, there's always Let me Google that for you...
