Are you sure you correctly did the steps in the guide Ella linked to ?


Also, try going to the base game location, usually C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin, and there, right-click on the TS3W.exe. Choose "run as Administrator", and see what happens next. This "method" is valid for Windows Vista and later systems.

Also, is your computer strong enough to run the game ? Google for "can you run it" and let it "scan" your computer for The Sims 3 (it should be self-explanatory to use).

Good luck !

Sounds like a difficult issue, but try un-installing the base game, via the "System Control Panel". After un-installing, re-boot the computer. And after that, re-install the base game.

Now, re-do the steps from #2 to #4 in the guide that Ella posted above. Good luck !


P.S. please use the "edit"-button on your post if you want to add anything to your original message; so please don't double-post anymore. Smile


//EDIT

tika Mixemup, now that I posted a reply, you don't have to edit your previous post anymore. Wink  If you get a reply from someone, you can then post a new reply, which will show up after my post.

Only as long as you haven't received a reply, you should use the "edit"-button. Smile  So yes, please try the solution and then post a new reply again !

 Good luck !
