Error during Startup... After doing Ultimate fix PLEASE help. [SOLVED]

Post by RandomOne on Tue 25 Jun 2013, 05:33

I had some CC's I forgot to add to my game (some package and some Sims3pack) I added the package ones and went on to install the others. When I started to install them I noticed there was a new patch that interrupted them being downloaded. 


So before I did the patch I took out all my Nraas and mods and updated them before I did the patch. I then went ahead and did the patch forgetting about the Ultimate Fix. I've only done the Ultimate Fix once this was my second time. I then tried to patch the game but it didn't work and started crashing the launcher. 
I came back here to see if anyone else had the same problem and noticed the Ultimate Fix was updated. 


After realizing I didn't update it yet I started questioning if I should download it again because all my sims games were purchased I only download the store contents and worlds which is why I downloaded the Ultimate fix the first time, I had a problem with a world I believe or a conflict with updating the last patch and was recommended to the fix. I then went ahead and downloaded the fix and read the instructions and viewed the video to be 100% sure I knew what I was doing because I remember having problems the first time. 


After doing so I opened my launcher to refresh the patch like instructed and try again but instead I got the startup error. I then found the video that explains how to fix that error but it didn't work for me since I don't have the Wow6432node (I think it's call that) folder. 


Please tell me there's a way I can fix this without uninstalling my game... That's my biggest worry right now, I have to much saved up to just uninstall. 
Please PLEASE help. Sad
 Help


(Also, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong spot I'm still learning about the site and how to do things.)Noob

When I have problems while patching, I usually start from scratch. I mean, manual patch, apply the fix, update the game from the launcher and then finish applying the fix (#crack folder).

Whenever I had problems with my game being updated, I used that method and everything went out well. Just make sure to follow carefully all the instructions given in the .rar files, and everything should work fine Very Happy

@ Lumarel Oh yeah, I should have mentioned that. I tried manually installing it after being unable to open the launcher but I got another error when it was almost finished. Sad

I had already tried manually installing the patch but not with the CC's and Mods removed. You reminded me of that and once I removed them and relogged I came back and tried manually installing it again and it worked! TY! :)
