Hello,


Try re-doing the steps from #2 to #4 in that guide here:


http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly



Do these steps as precisely as possible, because your error shouldn't happen if you correctly apply the LATEST manual patch and the LATEST Ultimate fix too. Good luck ! Smile

Experience usually tells me that this "error" is due to the Ultimate fix not being correctly applied, so again, have another look at the steps I posted above. Before you do step #4 there, try deactivating your anti-virus software completely. Also, if you have a "NoCD-mod", please take it out.


After doing step #4, go to the base game location, usually that's C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. There, make a shortcut to the desktop from the TS3W.exe file. Use that shortcut then to start the game.


What happens then ?
