Which expansions are you using and is your game up to date (1.26)?

Are you using the latest version of the fix?
And when did you start having this error, was it before or after updating to 1.26.

Hello,
I think the update broke your game. A lot was changed with this update to accommodate Pets, if you don't intend to install it, you might consider reinstalling your game and updating to 1.24, using the crack found with Town Life stuff.

That's no problem, if you reinstall what you're using now, you can update your base game to 1.24 manually, a google search for update 1.24 should be sufficient. After that, install your expansions, use the crack found with Town Life stuff, and ignore the launcher if it tells you there's a new update available and would you like to install it.

Hello,
Is your base game by any chance an official digital download?

Hello,
A downloaded game you paid for, like on Steam.

Hello,
It depends where you got your base game from. Did you download it as a torrent from a site like the piratebay?

Hello,
Ok maybe you need to reinstall it before you can use the patch. Assuming you uninstalled and attempt to reinstall, did you restart your pc after uninstalling before you started with the installation?
