One recommendation: please don't double post. You can edit the first of these posts to add more information by clicking "Edit" at the top of it. Sorry, it's against the forum rules. Wink

Oh, and please do! If something goes wrong, we can try to help you out. Good luck! Very Happy

Are you sure you tried all of the suggestions? Did you add all of the .exe files from the location stated to the DEP?

Also, remember to use the 4GB Patch if it applies to you. Smile


What are your system specs? Is it 32 or 64 bit?

Just want to confirm something. After you installed Island Paradise, did you re-do the Steps 2-4 from this guide?
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Also, are you sure that your PC can handle that amount of EPs? Please post your system specifications for us to take a look. Wink

Well, it seems that you indeed can use the 4GB Patch. You should apply it.
Also, you didn't answer me if you added all of the .exe files to the DEP. Did you?

And, does it crash with no error? Or does it say something after the crash?

Even if you uninstalled Island Paradise, you should repeat the Steps #2-4 of the guide anyway. Here it is again:

Please, try all of this and let us know how it goes. Good luck! Very Happy

What program, exactly? Make sure that the game or launcher aren't running on the background before attempting any of this.

Another thing you can try is to delete the cache files from this location Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3
The files are as follows:

CASPartCache.package
SimCompositorCache.package
compositorCache.package
ScriptCache.package
SocialCache.package

Delete the contents of the WorldCache folder, and from the Thumbnails folder, too.
Also make sure that the CurrentGame.sims3 folder is empty. Then, try again.

Yes, it's recommended that you apply the Ultimate Fix after installing a new EP. Sometimes it isn't necessary, but you can do it to avoid some errors that may occur. 

And it's good to hear that! So, is your problem solved now? Very Happy
