Backup and Remove "Documents/Electronic Arts/Sims 3" Then try playing, and see if it will load.

Hello,

What you can do is drag the "The Sims 3" folder to your desktop. Just click and hold, then move your mousepointer to an open area on your desktop.

Hello,

I think you moved the wrong folder, put this one back where it came from, and make sure you move the one from Documents\Electronic Arts.
Your save will be fine, this is just for testing purposes.

Hello,

Ok, now you can go to the folder you dragged to the desktop and copy your saves folder to the new folder that was generated by the game and test it with your savegame.
Did you have mods/cc?

Hello,

When you moved that folder to your desktop, the game generated a new one in Documents\Electronic Arts. Your saves are in the folder on your desktop, if you go there and copy the "saves" folder, then paste them into the new folder your game generated, your family will be available again.
Try this first to see if you can send your family to university, then you can reinstall your cc's.

I have the same problem... And tried those tips out and it still won't work. WhatDidUJustCallMe? Btw the problem is only with my one family. (I started with 1 sim and when she went to the university, it loaded well but now her kids (who have moved to own house, are going to the university but now it won't load..) I tried that thing with a new family and it loaded, so the problem is only with my one family Sad sad, because I liked that family and I really would like to send my sims to the university.

Hello,

That's odd, it would seem like it's a problem with that family. As a test, would you mind saving this family to the bin and testing them in another world? If it works like that, I may have a better option for you, because obviously the downside to this is that your family will loose all their relationships in town.
But if your test is successful, try this mod.

Hello,

Can you export the family, as if you were going to upload them to the exchange?

Hello,

It would seem that there is a problem with this particular family. Hopefully someone has an idea. The best suggestion I can give you now is to uninstall&reinstall University. If you do, restart your pc after uninstalling.
