I need some help. [SOLVED]

I'm trying to launch both Sims 3 and Supernatural and they both say that there was an error during startup.
What should I do?

Hello,

What happens if you go to C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and double-click the TS3W.exe ?

Alternatively, you can also go to
C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3: Supernatural\Game\Bin and try double-clicking on the TS3EP07.exe.

Hello,

Please do a clean un-install of ALL your Sims 3 games. For that, follow the guidelines of this article here: http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_Uninstall

I recommend you delete the registry entries of the game manually, by the way (= do not use tools like the "CCleaner").

After un-installing, you may re-start your computer. And then you re-install again.

Good luck!

Ok, please type the Windows key (on the bottom of the keyboard) and the R key together, then type "regedit" and press enter.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Sims 3, and give us a screenshot of what you get (or a list of the folders you have).
Also, tell us which games you have installed.

Ok, There's no "sims 3" folder there because I installed it to D:\My Games\Sims 3
and in a separate folder the supernatural
I have these two

//EDIT: I have 100 GB memory there and 3-4 GB on the C:

//EDIT2: that's why I installed it there

//EDIT3: Fortunately I have an Electronic Arts folder where I have The Sims and The Sims 3 as well next to EA Core ; EA Games and EADM

Ok, please do not double-post and edit your previous one like I did...
Is D: an external drive or a second drive inside your PC?

I think using TeamViewer would be better if you mind
PM me . I'm 415 497 058

//EDIT

D: is a second drive


Helper edit: like Shamrock already said, if you want to add something to your post, use the "edit" button. It will allow you to modify your post. Thanks Wink

By TeamViewer, I edited the Registry: seems like the uninstall didn't go properly, and a bunch of other games were there (though not in the usual place since the games are installed on D:)
Seems to be working now...

So now as I read from some chick the launcher opens but the game doesn't
this means that the game automatically crashes as soon as I click on 'Play"

Did you apply the latest Ultimate Fix?
And is your game up to date? (1.50)

//EDIT: With TeamViewer, checked the version (it was fine) and applied the Ultimate Fix.
