Were you connected to the internet when this happened? It checks for updates from the official site, which means you'd need an open internet connection to do that...
what do you mean by open connection if you mean by direct then yea i dont have a router or nothingand it cant have been my firewall because my firewall asks if i want to allow internet access to programs

When you install most or any sims game you gotta turn most things off, like background tasks and such, read your book that came with the game, it should tell you what to turn off...
yes book, shops here in london espicially west end dont give out books they put a sticker in the case and thats it, they do it for security so people dont download the game then rob the book its really annoying
I didn't make it!
I had this problem when I first installed The Sims 2 University. I pressed cancel when it searches for the update and it worked, only problem is when you donwload stuff that needs that expansion pack to work it wont install as it doesnt seem to see the expansion pack as installed even though everything works. In the end I uninstalled everything and it worked fine.. Good luck x
