Sims 3 Launcher Has Stopped Working [SOLVED]

Post by ProSkittles101 on Sun 07 Jul 2013, 08:46

 Please Help,


     I have a problem regarding the sims 3 launcher. Everytime I boot the sims 3 launcher, it pops up a mini window saying
      Sims3Launcher has stopped working, then it closes. My Computer meets the minimum requirements, and the only things i    
      installed were (in order, by installation guide) Sims 3 base game, ambitions, pets, seasons, and university life.
    
      I only installed the expansions, then the ultimate fix. I tried installing the Manual Patch, then it said it couldn't find the 
      determined version, so i assumed it was only if the expansions didn't update during set up, which it did. So I installed the
      ultimate fix using the guide that came with it, putting each crack in the appropriate folder. Then when i tried to boot up 
      the game it stopped working... Did i do anything wrong? Was it because of the Manual Patch?

     P.S: The Only Thing that confused me was when i had to copy and replace both the base game and the expansions (pets/Universtity life) in the same bin folder of the sims 3 base game in the program files

                                                                                                                                               Thanks, Help  :newfag:

I had same thing. To fix this problem i had to reinstall everything. Then i used manual patch. After manual patch was done i replaced only sims 3 base one with the crack file one from ultimate fix.

After i did that and opened launcher it worked just fine. U probably need to do same too.

 Umm... So i re-installed everything, and tried the manual patch... but everytime i open it, it says that it can't identify the version of
 the application. it starts the wizard, but then the error appears.

Can you please give me the exact version of your game? Open the Launcher and hover over the base game icon at the bottom.

 I can't open the launcher, but the version should be 1.50 since university life updated the base game,
 I'm wondering how to apply the manual patch, since it always says it can't determine the version of
 the application. Also, I looked in the control panel and the sims 3 was version 1.50.56. 
 
 Pic for manual patch:
 
 

EDIT: I Skipped updating the game to 1.55 (2nd Step) when i first installed the packs, im now in the process of updating it since
I opened up the launcher and updated it, i did not know you can use the manual patch if you can't update the
game via the launcher prior to the ultimate fix, sorry for the misunderstandings and thanks for the replies. 
I'm just playing it safe by installing pets first with the base game, ill let you know if any problems occur.
