The Sims Life Stories has stopped working

Post by KittahKatt on Thu 02 Jun 2016, 18:36

Hello, I recently downloaded The Sims Life Stories and it runs great but will randomly pop up a message and close out. I am on Windows 10 and I'm starting to think that may be the problem. Here's an image of what it shows every time before it exits out:

Am I just unable to play due to being on Windows 10 or are there ways around it?

Thanks in advance!  Very Happy

Hello and welcome to the forum @KittahKat,

Try adding the .exe file of the game to the DEP exclusions.

Go to Control Panel/System/Advanced (tab)/Performance/Settings/Data Execution Prevention

Then you need to tick the option that is marked with an arrow, in the screenshot above. Click on "Apply" in the lower right, then on "OK". Not sure, but you may have to re-start the computer after that.

After the re-boot, try the game again. Good luck !
