The PackageInstaller is the program that opens and installs the SCSPack mod compilation files. It comes with SCS so you don't need to get it anywhere. What you do need to do when you install an SCS Pack for the first time is to right click the pack file and set the program to open with the PackageInstaller.

PackageInstaller is in your Electronic Arts/SimCity Societies main folder.

Thanks for the helpful information. I have seen many post asking about this but no one ever gave the exact info like you did. Thanks!

I appreciate this information because this is the first time I am installing any mods.

Thanks to tobing, I have some mods now, but I can't get the PackageInstaller to work. I have tried to associate the SCSPack file with PackageInstaller.exe, but my computer isn't recognizing it.

Does anyone have an idea what I might be doing wrong?

I don't know if this would work, but maybe you could just double click the PackageInstaller program first and then associate the Pack file with the program. Or you may have to actually start up the game first (to get it to automatically create mod sub folders), then exit, and then attempt again. I noticed that PackageInstaller doesn't work if you haven't started the game at least once after installation of the game.

What is supposed to happen when you open the PackageInstaller program? When I double click on it (or just Open it), nothing happens.

(BTW, thanks for your response.)

Nothing happens. It's just something I do every time I re-install SCS. Don't know if it changes anything.
