Error During Start up - Youtube Video didn't help

Post by Femn821 on Wed 18 Feb 2015, 20:25

Ok so I just hooked up a hard drive and did a format and all that good stuff, just for the Sims stuff!
I downloaded the Complete Collection of the Sims 3 and installed ALL the content expansions/stuff packs and followed your instructions.
I got the Error During Start Up. Please check logs for more info -- SO i checked out your video.
What happens if I currently have all the things the registry claims I have and I am STILL getting this error?

I am using Windows 7

So, what should I do and Thanks ahead of time Why.
These Links are Images of what I have. Still noob at forum posts so x.x excuse me lol!

Hello Femn821,


After installing the base game you MUST download + apply the latest manual patch, version 1.67. This patch is the big file, included in the #crack-folder of your download. Following that, you also need to install at least ONE of the other expansions/stuffpacks.

At the end, you need to use the TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll files from the #crack-folder in your Complete Collection, and copy them to your base game install location, usually C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. When prompted, choose "copy and replace" for all files.

Good luck, and feel free to post back if anything is still unclear to you and if you need more help. Smile 


P.S. also read up on this guide here, and do the steps from 2 - 5, which is basically the stuff that I mentioned above:

Yes, After installing the base game I ran the Update crack, Then Downloaded ALL the expansions then put the TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll files the main games bin file and replaced, I opened the launcher but It gave me a pop up message....


"There was an error during startup. Please see the log for more details"
I saw the Youtube Video about the windows registry, the sims 3 game launcher was having the same error so I checked mine out and nothing there needed deleted in my registry, but the error still pops up.


I got all the instructions you've posted on the forums and in the files but now I'm stuck.

Hey! I did finally get my game to work it was some silly error with me trying to put it on my hard drive that wasn't my default hard drive, So I did put it on my main hard drive and it worked.

Please open a NEW thread for your issue(s) Cellitha. Smile

Thanks for posting back ! Though I still don't know why you were unable to install the game on your other hard-drive. If you still want to have the install folders elsewhere, check this out:

Be warned though, this proedure might be difficult to do, and there is a lot you can do wrong in it. Originally, I wrote this for the folder which contains savefiles and mods. In your case though, you will need to apply the procedure to the folder "Electronic Arts" located in C:\Program files(x86)\

Please keep in mind that this is only something "optional"; in case you really want to move those folders to save space. Again, do this at your own risk. If you feel unsure about anything, feel free to post back. Smile
