Have you ever purchased a Sims 3 expansion pack and realized that you need the CD to install it? It can be frustrating, especially if you no longer have access to the CD. In this article, we will guide you through the steps of installing Sims 3 expansion packs without a CD.
Firstly, you need to open your file explorer. If you are using Windows 10, you will find it automatically on your desktop. However, if you are using Windows 7 or 8, you need to search for it manually. Once you have opened your file explorer, insert the DVD of the expansion pack you wish to install.
After a few seconds, you should see a Sims 3 icon on your file explorer. The next step is to scroll down to the second-to-last item, which should be an application named something like “EP07 Setup.” Double click on it to start the installation process.
Follow the on-screen instructions, which will prompt you to enter the serial code for the expansion pack. If you have purchased the expansion pack from a store, the code should be inside the DVD case. If you have downloaded the game, you may need to check online for the code.
Once you have entered the code, the installation process should begin automatically. It may take a few minutes, depending on the size of the expansion pack.
It is worth noting that if you have downloaded the expansion pack from a website, you may not be able to use the serial code to register the game on Origin. This is because the code has already been used. However, if you have a physical copy of the game, you should be able to use the serial code to register the game on Origin.
In conclusion, installing Sims 3 expansion packs without a CD is not as complicated as it may seem. All you need is your file explorer and the serial code for the expansion pack. We hope this article has been helpful to you. Happy gaming!
