Startup problem

Post by Roshunator on Thu 25 Jul 2013, 14:30

Okay - I have been through a lot of problems now and can now hopefully get some help.

I have Sims 3, Sims 3 Pets, Sims 3 Supernatural, Sims 3 Late Night, Sims 3 Fast Lane, Sims 3 High end Loft, Sims 3 Ambitions, Sims 3 World adventures installed, at first (Before i installed Supernatural and Pets) i could get into the launcher and update, but i couldn't open the game because it said it was incompatible with the newest expansion, i then did the Ultimate fix and Manual patch + downloaded Pets + Supernatural for the purpose, after i did this i encountered several new problems - and yes i did read the fix - Everytime i open my launcher it says Fail and that i can find information in the log and when i open the TS3W in The Sims 3 folder (Not expansion) it says "Couldn't start the game" And some wierd numbers (0x0175dcbb)

Love the site tho! Smile

Hello,


Have you updated your game via manual patch, which can be found here? You only need one set of TS3W.exe, TS3.exe and TSLHost.dll in the base game folder, which is the one in the Ultimate Fix. Remember after manually patching the game, you must apply the Ultimate Fix again.

Hello,

You can either run TS3W.exe in C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin, or double-click the shortcuts on the desktop and click the "Play" Button in the launcher.
