Just installed expansion packs, now when I try to open the launcher it will not start up.

Hi,

I already have the Sims 3 game (bought it from Origin, along with Late Night and High End Loft Stuff). I wanted to get more expansion packs so I torrented 4 (Generations, Pets, Ambitions, Seasons). After they finished torrenting I installed the Ultimate Fix, then followed the instructions to copy and replace the .exe and .dll file into the Game/Bin area. I tried to start the game through the launcher, but it said that the "Sims 3 Launcher has stopped working". 

I then searched online for a solution to this and then realized that I forgot to actually set up/install the torrented files. Woops. So I did that, entered in the product keys for the expansion packs and everything, then tried launching the game again. Still, same problem. So instead of the launcher, I clicked the TS3W.exe file. It would then give me the error "Sims 3 has stopped working". I then copy and pasted the .exe and .dll files from the #Crack folder of the Pets expansion pack. Still didn't work. 

Sorry, I'm not good at all with these sorts of things. It's my first time torrenting. I thought I followed the instructions word for word, but it still messed up in the end. Can someone help me out? Lol sorry if I sound clueless.

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.
Did you, by any chance, update your game to version 1.69.xx? That could be the cause of the problem, if you did. The crack is for 1.67.xx.
You could remedy that by uninstalling your base game (no need to uninstall the expansions) and turning off automatic updates, then using the manual patch to get to game version 1.67.xx.
