Did the game works again?

BTW, if you want to ask a question, you should post in chit-chat not here. 


Helper edit: sorry, this is not quite correct. This section here is alright.

Hello,

What is the file format of your custom content ?

If you are talking about ".sims3pack" files, have a look at this here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=461888

If you want to install ".package" files, look at this here: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Installing_Sims_3_Package_Files/Setup_and_Files
Scroll below and download the "mod framework". Extract the contents of the .zip file (with a program like WinRAR) to My documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3. Then you put your ".package" files to
My documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3/Mods/Packages.

 First let's try to fix the launcher and if it won't work, then i will explain to you how to install content without launcher step by step.

Hello,

To install sims3packs without launcher. Try the following steps;
(1) Run Delphy's Sims 3 Packs Multi-Extracter program.

(2) Once the program is opened, select the sims3pack folder to be extracted,which should be a folder somewhere where you downloaded the sims3pack files to.


(3) Click "Browse" and select:
C:\Users\(your computer name)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages
This will require the Mod framework mentioned by Carlos G.

(4) Then the sims3packs will be packed into a package and you are finished.

Keep in mind that you may need the store fix (which can be downloaded here) to make some of the CC you installed work.

Hello,

It simply implies that the patch you installed is corrupted. Can you try this if you have The Sims 3: Island Paradise installed?
