Sims 3 Launcher has Stopped working! Please Help. [SOLVED]

Post by B37lovly on Mon 06 Jan 2014, 04:38

Hello,
I am having problem with my launcher. When I go to open up my launcher it opens but then I get an message saying sims 3 launcher has stopped working and then it closes. Now, I have been playing the game all week long and it was doing fine, I just recently applied the temporary store fixes and I played with it for the last 4 days and everything was working fine, no problems. But I just tried to play my game tonight and that when I got this error. I did follow up on cleaning my cache and I do have custom content.

Please help! Thanks. Help

Hello,

Like the other poster said, are you using the LATEST manual patch and the LATEST Ultimate fix ? In case of doubt, re-do the steps from 2 to 4 here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Besides, I recommend starting the game with TS3W.exe anyway. So go to your base game location; usually that's C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and look for the TS3W.exe file. Right-click on it and choose "send to...desktop (create shortcut)".

Use that TS3W.exe shortcut on the desktop then to start the game.

Good luck and let us know if that worked !
