I installed "The Sims 3 High-End Loft Stuff" add-on onto my computer. I already had Sims 3. After the add-on game installed correctly, I tried to start up the game by clicking the desktop icon. It pops up with a little window saying exactly this: "Active X controls are required to use this product. Please enable Active X controls in your Internet Explorer security settings and restart the application." Then once I ex out of that, another little window pops up reading: "JavaScript is required to use this product. Please enable javascript in your Internet Exlporer security settings and restart the application." Then, the Sims 3 game launcher (medium, not full screen) window pops up and I can't click anything cause it says my Sims 3 base game isn't compatible with the add-on sims 3 game.

== I tried to start up Sims3 after installing an add-on game, which needs the Active X enabled somehow (or else the game doesn't start).

Firefox doesn't do ActiveX, you'll have to use IE for that game.

ActiveX only work in IE and not in other browsers like Firefox. See
