SIMS 3. launcher error? [SOLVED]

Post by limitedcitrom on Sat 22 Oct 2011, 13:01

I downloaded all the expansion and stuff packs. when i installed the pets expansion, i could play for a little, then my computer randomly restarted and whenever i started the launcher it gave me an error: "there was an error during startup. please see the log for more details"
so i uninstalled and reinstalled everything, but still couldn't play. then installed the base game, and it worked fine until i patched it. so i think the problem is with one of the patches, but when i try to install an expansion pack, i have to update the base game, so i get the launcher error again.
what do i do? i want to play with Pets so bad, but i can't seem to install anything other than the base game. help?

Hello,
You can test if your pc meets the systemrequirements here.
If you have any mods/cc, make sure you've downloaded the updated versions, out of date mods can crash your game.

Hello,

Well, if you have plans on reformatting your PC, I guess that's the best option for now.
Did you try running the game without the launcher?

Hello,

Before reformatting, please try the following (I remember in the past this solved the problem for some people):

1. Completely uninstall The Sims 3 base game.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Re-install the game.
4. Apply this Fix: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t752-the-sims-3-ultimate-fix-should-fix-most-of-your-problems
5. See if it works now.
