Hello,
You need certain expansions installed (at least one from the list) to make the game work with the Ultimate Fix.

Hello,

In addition, forget the launcher for now, it's heavily glitched. And unless EA releases another patch to fix it, the launcher will stay glitched.

Here, read up on this guide here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

And at the end, start the game with the TS3W.exe in your base game location, which is usually in C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. You can/should even make a shortcut to the desktop from that TS3W.exe file.


Good luck and keep us updated !

Oh, that is bad. Broken registry...
Please try this video.
Otherwise, you need to uninstall everything using YourUninstallerPro...
