Can't launch The Sims 3. [SOLVED]

Post by Alpollon on Sun 10 Jul 2016, 17:15

Hello,
first I would like to say that I really appreciate your site and am happy to have found a really good source for games.

I installed the Sims 3 exactly like the instructions say, everything works until I try to launch the game. It doesn't open and there is a pop-up saying that I don't have any app installed for opening this type of link (origin) (I'm german so I tried to translate it as good as possible). I thought I installed something wrong or did something else wrong so I deinstalled and reinstalled everything again. It still say that I can't open it. I would really appreciate some help. Thank you for any replies in advance

Hello Alpollon,

First of all, welcome to the Games4theworld Forum!
Can you kindly post a screenshot of the error? Doesn't matter that it's in German.

Hello again,

Oh, that's very weird. You're trying to run the TS3W.exe file, right?
Can you kindly try re-doing steps 4-6 and let us know the result: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

Yes, I am trying to run the TSW3.exe file. Did step 4-6 again, same results. It's not working. Apparently it's searching for Origin, which it obviously can't find, cause I don't have it installed.

Problem solved via TeamViewer.
I have been waiting in the Chatbox for the past hour, but you never showed up again. Razz I assume the problem is solved then. (Leftover files in the Registry from another modified "Complete" torrent, will make a Fix topic for this later)

Enjoy the game and please let us know if you need help again! The Sims Plumbob 1
