error when launching sims 3 launcher. [SOLVED]

Post by hikari_mochi on Mon 10 Oct 2011, 14:08

Help Noob Razz
i have installed the sims 3 ep's WA, LN and generations today and i know for sure they work fine (i 'almost' started the game but stopped when this error popped and i read somewhere that it is normal for generations so no problem there). i was at the last few steps of applying the 'ultimate fix' (finished doing step 10 that says "For The Sims 3 - Generations: open the "Generations" folder in this .rar file and drag & drop both files in there to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and choose "Replace" on the pop-up that appears, telling you the files already exist.") (step 11 is for town life stuff [which i don't have] in case anyone is wondering) anyway, i was at step 12 telling me to open my launcher and update to the latest version. problem is it has popup that says "unable to find a version of the runtime to run this application". i googled around and found out that it has to do with the .net thingy. i already have version 4 of .NET so does this mean sims 3 is not compatible with version 4?? (it mentioned that it needs at minimum the version 2)

edit: i'm guessing this is not a common problem so if no one has an answer, can anyone tell me what version i need to update to so i can do this manually and how to install sims3packs without the launcher?? thanks!! Smile

Hello,
Your final game version should be 1.24, to update manually, go here.
You can double click sims3pack files to install them. The problem you're having with the launcher could be solved with the latest patch though.

i was able to update using the patch but i still get the same error.. Sad
i'll probably have to uninstall .NET version 4 then replace it with version 2..
thanks for the help though Smile

//EDIT

to anyone else that might have the same problem... it worked!!! Smile

Mod edit: Problem solved, topic closed.
Good to hear it worked! Happy simming. The Sims Plumbob 1
