Launcher crashes with error message

Post by dusty123 on Mon 04 Jan 2016, 04:32

I'm having the same issue. I dropped my laptop and had to get the hard drive replaced, so I'm reinstalling the Sims. I installed everything yesterday, but the launcher kept crashing. So today I uninstalled everything and tried it again, this time checking after each install. I managed to get everything installed without any issues, but when I started to install the neighborhoods (Aurora Skies, Barnacle Bay, etc.)  it allowed me to install Barnacle Bay then it just started crashing. It's stopped crashing for the time being, but when I try to install more neighborhoods I get an error saying to make sure I have the latest software update. For now I'm leaving the launcher open. I fee like if I close it and restart it, it'll crash again.

I've tried the Ultimate Fix, manual patches and even the launcher itself says the game is up to date, but I still can't install the neighborhoods. When I lost my old hard drive I lost my saved game and CC, so no CC at the moment to cause the crashing. Any ideas?

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.
I'm a little rusty, but if I remember correctly, that particular error had something to do with original sims3packs and a cracked game. The files you're installing, have they been decrapified?

I've tried installing original and decrapified files. The launcher crashes either way. I had to close it eventually and now it's gone back to crashing as soon as it starts.

I'm really sorry for the very late reply,


I just saw this thread here now.  Facepalm  Do you still need support on the issue ? If you go for decrapified .sims3pack files, you don't need the launcher at all, see the guide here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t15843-how-to-use-cc-magic

The only exception would be if you need to install worlds, in which case you would need the launcher. A long time ago I wrote this here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t16882-the-sims-3-launcher-problems-notice


Maybe it can help you a bit. Good luck either way ! Smile
