Hello,

Just to make sure: have another look at this here and (re-)do the steps from #2 to #4: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly



Then do this here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t857-the-sims-3-crashes-freezes-to-desktop-fix-updated-on-7-01-2014

If your Windows is a 64-bit version AND if your computer has 4 GB of RAM or more, then focus on step #3 in particular. Download the "4 GB patch" from here


After downloading, double-click on that 4 GB patch and in the next prompt, choose the TS3W.exe in your base game location. Usually, that's C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Wait for the message "executable successfully patched" and close the 4 GB patch.

Note that this method will not work if your Windows is a 32-bit version and/or if your computer has fewer  than 4 GB of RAM. After doing that, go on with the rest of the steps. These instructions should be pretty self-explanatory.



Now go to My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete all contents inside the Currentgame.sims3 folder. Also, in My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3, delete the following stuff:


-CASPartCache.package
-compositorCache.package
-scriptCache.package
-simCompositorCache.package
-socialCache.package
-plus the contents of the folders "WorldCaches" & "Thumbnails"



Re-start the game then and see if anything improved. You may even turn off your anti-virus program completely before playing The Sims 3.

Good luck !

I have this problem as well, so I used modthesims' Crash Log Analyzer to find out what the problem was.

Turned out it was because "High-end Loft Stuff" needed to be separately updated to a version 3.somethingsomething after I installed the 1.67 patch.

HOWEVER, the High-end Loft patch is only available for the US, so now I'm stuck because of a stupid regional restriction, and now the game crashes every time I try to boot it up.
The only workaround for myself is to settle on the compromise of NOT updating to 1.67.
Until the day someone can do us all the courtesy of hacking this patch to remove the regional restriction, I'll be forced to sit here waiting with my arms crossed.  Evil or Very Mad
