Sims3 Launcher has stopped working

Post by NBGee on Tue 05 Feb 2013, 22:54

When I attempt to launch the Sims3 this is the message I get everytime. I can launch the game by ignoring the launcher, but since I am a bit of a perfectionist and occasionally like to add in Sims3 packs, I would really like to fix the problem. I have the base game and all of the expansions and stuff packs loaded. I used the manual patch to update off of your site, used the ultimate fix following the directions... and I still can't get the launcher to work. I have been a fan of your site for a long time and you guys are really knowledgeable so I have my fingers crossed that someone can help me. Thanks, Nathaniel

update: I uninstalled everything (base game, all expansions, made sure all folders were completely cleaned out, etc) and did a clean reload of everything and I am still having the same problem. Is there anyone who has seen this and managed to fix it? I am running Windows 7 x64 if that matters.

Hello,

The launcher doesn't load?
Try downloading and installing Origin: www.origin.com/download
No need to actually have it running, only install it.

I have the most recent Origin installed on my machine. In fact before I uninstalled and reinstalled everything I tried uninstalling just Origin and reinstalling it. Then when that didn't work I uninstalled everything and tried a fresh install. The end result is the same, launcher won't load.

Hello,

What if you use one of the other exe's for the launcher in the base game\bin? There are 3 and all 3 of them work.

Hello,

But the "TS3W.exe" works fine?

It does indeed. The problem I have then though is what if I wish to add new neighborhoods or other custom content? The only way I am familiar with to add Sims3 packs is to run them and let the launcher add them. Is there another way to do so?

Hello,

I see...
Try this method: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t3330-an-alternative-approach-to-managing-store-and-custom-contentupdated-the-sims-3
Not sure whether it'll work, but I think it should.
