Error Message when opening Sims 3 Launcher. [SOLVED]

Post by nellybell1011963 on Thu 19 Dec 2013, 17:19

When I try to open my sims 3 game launcher I get the message "There was an error during start up. Please see the log for more details". What does that mean? It ran fine yesterday.

Hey Nell,

Also the registry helper?
In case that doesn't work either, i really don't have another idea,
Than you have to wait for someone else to come up with an answer.

Sorry!

Yes I applied the ultimate fix. I redownloaded it and it worked fine. Then when I quit the game and tried to play the next day it did the same thing.

Hello,

First, watch this video here:





Follow the instructions exactly as they are shown in the video !

Also, this video is for 64-bit systems. If you have a 32-bit system, the registry location is: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Sims.

Good luck and let me know if that solution worked for you !

I uninstalled everything and re-installed. This seemed to help.


Moderator edit: OK then, I interpret this as "problem solved". If you have any other questions, feel free to open a new topic. This here is closed.
