This error message indicates that you have incompatible mods/corrupted caches.

To fix this, remove the folder Mods in C:\users\(your computer username)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3.

Clear all the caches mentioned below:
Create-a-Sim Cache: CasPartCache.package
Build/Buy mode cache: compositorCache.package
Mod or custom content cache: scriptCache.package
New Sims and skin cache: simCompositorCache.package
Socialcache.package
Look for a folder that says Thumbnails. Delete anything inside of it.
Llook for WorldCaches and delete anything inside of it.

Please let us know the result. Wink

In the meantime, I suggest you redo steps 2-4 again: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly. If you still have Into The Future torrent, you can run the manual patch in Support/Updates folder from the torrent without having to download the manual patch. Please do redownload the Ultimate Fix and try cracking again after applying the manual patch.

If that doesn't help, rename the folder C:\Users\(your computer username)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3 and restart the game.

Please don't double-post. You should edit your previous post instead.

So you have renamed the folder in Documents but it doesn't work?

Hello,
You are being helped, please be patient we are not EA's customer service pirat 
Please try the following:

Close all of your browser windows and etc... right click on the sims icon on the desktop or wherever you might have it stored and select run as administrator. Once the game browser opens up, go to the store or exchange and download your content - this time when it is finished downloading, it won't just be a little box. It will actually install.
Please tell us the result!

Like Shamrock said, please try to be patient, and do not double-post. On your post, there is a button called "edit". Click on it, and it will allow you to modify your post. I will just delete these double-posts...

Back to your problem: how about putting your mods back in one-by-one ? Have you tried that already ? (Delphy's dashboard is not always reliable). So put one mod in, start up the game and see if it works. If it does, exit the game, put the next mod in, etc. Just because you download "compatible" mods this doesn't mean you won't get problems. I've downloaded myself "compatible" mods, and they caused me lots of trouble.

Also, please make sure to re-download the Ultimate fix because there were problems with the link.
