More info and solutions available on
If you have lost your Sims 3 Store Content, see this thread:
MOD Users! Twallan has the following message. Please note that MODs are not compatible with the Pets DEMO
My mods are *NOT* compatible with the Create-A-Pet Demo, and I do not intend to do any work to make them so (I will be waiting until the full Expansion is released).
In order to get the application to work on my setup, it was necessary to rename the "The Sims 3" folder in your "My Documents" to "The Sims 3.old".
At the minimum though, you *must* rename the "Mods" folder to "Mods.old" to hide them while you are running Create-A-Pet.
Change the folder name back when you intend to play the full game.
Due to issues with uninstalling the Demo product, it is advised that you back-up your content folders prior to running Create-A-Pet for the first time.
Renaming the entire "The Sims 3" My Documents folder (as mentioned above) should stop any badness from occurring.
♦ First and foremost please understand that this CAP demo is inter-connected with your existing Sims 3 Game. If you are installing it n a computer with current Sims Games please BACK UP & SAVE your current games & Store Content.
♦ Second, you need to treat this Demo as a patch, all MODS and CC need to be removed from your game. The Demo is part patch and has installed new folders in the game file. Two new game files have been created with this Demo. Collections and SavedOutfits
♦ If you are going to install this Demo, please install it on a separate computer (without your games) until more info about the issues is tested and reported back
