This user has the following games installed:

Sims 3, World Adventures, Ambitions
Default CRC Error Can Not Patch Game
I have been trying to patch my game since the 25th of January, it is now the 9th of February. I have not been able to play my game since then.

The following is the error I receive when attempting to patch my game:

CRC error: The file C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\GameData\Shared\Packages\DeltaBuild0.package doesn't match the file in the setup's .cab file. The medium from which you are running the setup may be corrupted; contact your software vendor.

Then underneath I get the following options: Abort, Retry, and Ignore. I have tried all three with no luck. When I run Ignore it crashes in launching and the loading screen looks pixelated and corrupted.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled both Origin and The Sims 3 four times.

I have tried patching from the launcher with the same CRC error. I have manually patched using the super patch from this link:

I have done a “clean boot” and I have run the manual patch as Administrator. I have run the Sims 3 launcher as Administrator and tried to patch from the launcher.

I have added the word "old" to my Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 folder.

Everything I have done, and everything you guys have had me do has resulted in the same exact CRC error.

I have contacted EA/Origin support techs on six separate occasions. Nothing. They give me some task to do/try which will ultimately close out our chat and that's the end of it.

Someone has to know what is exactly wrong and what I need to do to fix it.

Sorry for the "you guys" I cut and pasted this from my convo with the support tech.

I'm stumped, too, but you can see if there is anything in that might help... Good luck

Crinrict also have something about CRC. Not about patching per se but still something:
