Well you need at least one of the following expansions installed to be able to play:
Into the Future, Movie Stuff, Island Paradise, University Life, 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations.
Please try to install one of them, update your game and apply the Ultimate Fix once more (files from the #Crack folder).
Tell us if this works!

Download one of these expansions from our website. Then extract the archive somewhere, and open the unzipped folder. Click the Autorun.
Once install is over, download the latest Ultimate Fix form here, then copy the files from the #Crack folder to your base game install folder. This should be C:\Program Files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin.
Then your game should work!

Do you mean the launcher doesn't launch at all ? If so, please have a look at my problems notice topic on here:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t16882-the-sims-3-launcher-problems-notice



Also, can you start the game with the TS3W.exe in the base game location ? C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Just double-click on that file and see if the game starts.
