Sims 3 Launcher has stopped working, Base Game also crashes on start

Post by isnol on Mon 08 Jul 2013, 21:40

Hi, I'm kind of a new member here, and I have a little problem.
I used the Ultimate Fix that was provided from this forums and on my first time It worked perfectly I had the latest patch and 2 expansion packs, first of all I had the 1st expansion pack which was Island Paradise there was no problem with it and worked great, 2nd expansion pack was University Life I installed it and after I started the game it crashed and did not work, that launcher however was working [Note: when I installed University Life it was glowing at the bottom list of Expansions in the launcher, but not Island paradise even though it was also installed]
I decided to re-install the whole game, I replaced the TS3.exe and TSLHost.dll with the ones from the "Base Game" folder and tried to open the Launcher however it stated the error that "has stopped working."
I tried to run TS3.exe and it also crashed after the loading screen at the beginning, note that I did not install the crack since I don't have the latest patch installed.

On the other hand, here are some notes that I did not mention : 
The base game is pirated and so are the expansion packs, Base game was from Razor1991, and the expansions were from games4theworld.
The base game's version is 1.0.631.00002, I tried updating it using Razor's Patch 1.0.632.00002 but it didn't work.
I can however use the crack from Razor's torrent and play the normal game, how ever I want the game updated to 1.55.4.
I'd be much appreciated If someone would help me get the Launcher to work again.

Hello,

Have you already tried downloading the "manual patch" ? http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v155-fix-manual-patch

After downloading, just double-click on the patch - and it will update your game to the latest version.

Then download and apply the "Ultimate fix": http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems
Remember that you only need the two files from the #crack folder of the Ultimate fix. Copy these two files (TS3W.exe + TSLHost.dll) into C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Of course, you need to "replace the existing files".

If you can't start the game with the launcher, then make a shortcut of the TS3W.exe (I mentioned above) to the desktop. Then double-click on the shortcut.

Good luck !
