Hello,

Can you right-click on an expansion shortcut (on the desktop) or the Sims3LauncherW.exe in your base game location, and select "Run as Administrator" ?

Your base game location is usually in C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.

Also, I have found out that if you have a lot of .sims3packs installed, you shouldn't scroll down that list of installed items (under "installed content"). If you just install items "normally", then there shouldn't be any bigger issues.


Good luck for now ! Smile
