Launcher not working

Post by ms_stigall on Thu 01 May 2014, 15:00

Can anyone tell me what to do if the sims 3 launcher won't work? It says that the launcher has stopped working. I can start the game without the launcher but how am i supposed to install games without it??

You don't need the Launcher to install games.
Try to add it to the DEP.

Possibly corrupt cc with the launcher. I fixed them by re-installing all cc, worlds etc that I've installed with launcher

I guess the OP actually meant how to install ".sims3packs", and NOT "games". (ms_stigall, feel free to correct me though, but your question would only make sense if you meant to ask how to install .sims3pack files).


Sorry for the late reply ms_stigall, but try using "CC Magic":

Keep in mind that if you want to install worlds, you'll still need the launcher though. If you have Windows Vista or later can you, for a start, go to the Sims3LauncherW.exe, located in C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin ?

Right-click on the file and choose "run as Administrator". See if that improves anything - good luck !
