I can't even load the game launcher!

Post by noobgal123 on Sat 18 May 2013, 22:42

My problem started because the Sims, kept crashing after about 5 minutes of game play (it used to work just fine it was properly installed and the ultimate fix applied..!), so I tried to fix this by following the 7 step crash advice.

Upon trying to restart the game again I now get the popup saying: Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?

I click yes and nothing happens...

I have applied the ultimate fix again in case i did something to the .exe files, but this hasn't worked. not really sure what to do because i am a complete noob and I haven't encountered this problem before!

any ideas?!

Thanks!

Run it as admin, always a good idea when playing cracked games. I'd also turn the anti-virus off if you have one, they have DRM software implemented.

Also have you removed any script mods recently? I remember when I deleted a Story Progression mod the game would crash on startup, I had to delete the entire Sims 3 Documents folder except Mods, Downloads and SavedSims for it to work again.

I was running it as admin before so I don't think that is the problem. I have just turned off my anti-virus and that hasn't helped either Sad

I don't use any script mods either WhatDidUJustCallMe? so still in the same situation! Thanks for your advice though!

Thanks!

This part concerns me a little as I never heard of this before, what is the name of the programme that is trying to make the changes?

Hello there,

What happens if you go to the Sims 3 base game location and make a shortcut (to the desktop) for the "TS3W.exe" file ? Try double-clicking on it, maybe it will bypass the launcher.

Hi! I managed to open the game, it completely bypassed the annoying popup, so that is great thank you so much!

However, the game crashed after about 5 minutes again so I am back at square one! Sad any ideas?
