SIMS 3 LAUNCHER ERROR *HELP!* [SOLVED]

Post by arrnearrno on Sun 10 Aug 2014, 16:58

Not Sure if this is where i post this but my sims 3 launcher gives me a error when i download custom content:
Windows cannot find 'E:\The Sims 3 Base Game\Game\Bin\Game_Win32.exe
Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.'

And it wont even let me play the game not from the launcher or from TS3W.EXE because TS3W.EXE wont work.
i don't know what the matter is it was working fine last night.

Hello and sorry for the late reply,


The last few days have been difficult for me, hence I couldn't get back to all posts. As for your issue, please make sure to add the "Electronic Arts"-folder (C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts) to the exceptions of your anti-virus software. This is to make sure that your anti-virus doesn't damage or "clean" any of your game files.

Next, you shouldn't un-install stuff, just because something appears to be not working. Smile  In Windows OS, un-installing and then re-installing VERY RARELY solves problems, and if you don't do it right, it can mess up your game even more.

Have you actually tried starting the game from your TS3W.exe file, in the base game location ? usually that's in C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Good luck for now, and we'll see to the other issue about installing CC in the launcher, later on...
