Hello,
A few questions come to mind.
What is your base game version?
Are you using mods/cc at all? If yes, try disabling them for the moment to see if your save game loads.

It happens to me too... Every town I try loading it says this. I have only the 4 towns which come with the game + all the expansion packs (I have no CC) and under C > Documents and settings > User Name > My Documents I don't even have a Sims 3 folder (haven't been able to play the game yet.)

I have the latest Sims 3 version 1.29 and all the EP and SP installed according to the Ultimate Fix from here. And I have lowerer my setting in game to improve supposedly performance.

What causes this problem? How can we fix it?

Hello,
I don't think this has to do with performance. I'm not sure what is causing this though, I've only had an error of that type once.
Perhaps something is wrong with one of the expansions that was installed.
For those that have been able to play before, the only thing I can suggest right now is a user created mod The error trap that was designed to prevent corrupted save games. It is installed like this.
But that's obviously not going to work if you haven't been able to actually play the game and the folder you need doesn't exist yet. At which point I'd suggest letting Admin share his thoughts.

I have no idea what is causing this either. I could play the game before, with every stuff pack and expansion until I installed pets, without the patch, when it stopped working. I tried reinstalling the base game only and updating it to version 1.29 and it didn't work either, so i'm not sure if the problem is the patch or the pets ep, or both, I don't know what to do, really.

Hello,
Using the base game only with the crack from the fix doesn't work, you need either one of these: Generations, Town Life Stuff or Pets. So I suggest installing the other expansions and applying the crack again, its up to you whether or not to try installing Pets with that, but you should be able to get the game to work.

But after I install generations,town life stuff or pets i need to update the game to 1.29 to apply the fix right?

Hello,
Not necessarily, you could install Pets which updates the game to 1.26 and use the Pets crack.
But I'm not convinced its the patch that's causing these problems, since your problem started after installing Pets.

Another The sims 3 Error: IT cuts off mid-game and stays on a black screen for about 5 minutes. Goes to a blue screen saying this program has crashed your graphics card. (ON A NEW DELL 15R Laptop) and it counts down to reboot and restarts the machine and game lost. HELP!

This same problem is happening with my game as well. I had problems when I installed the sims pets, but fixed it by changing my .exe files to win 95 compatibility and turning DEP off. Ive tried everything posted here and updated, but the same error message pops up when i try and load a saved family, or edited neighborhood. Neighborhoods I haven't edited will load, but the premade sims living there will not show up until I create a new family and place them.

Ok, now i installed The Sims 3 base, then Generations, then town life stuff, and then every other expansion, except pets, like they recommended here in the forums. It installed fine, but when I try to open the launcher it doesn't do anything, doesn't even give an error message. I tried going to the installation folder and opening the launcher from there and it says that my base game version isn't compatible with my current expansion. Now, i'm wondering, do I really need to install patch 1.29, or is there something wrong with my base game and i need to download it from other site? I really don't know, I think I did everything right, after installing i used the crack from the fix.

Did you try clicking TS3W in the program files bin? I had the same problem and the game loaded without the launcher that way... Im still getting the same error once im in the game though.

Hello,
Is your base game version 1.29 now? And its the latest (updated Dec. 18th) fix you're using?

Yes, when i clicked in TS3W was when it gave me that error.
No, I installed it without any patches, shall I install patch 1.29 and then use the fix again? And yes, it is the most recent fix

Hello,

Well, the whole Fix is created to make it able for you to update your game to the latest version safely. If you do not update your game - it's described in one of the steps in the included "# Installation Guide.pdf" of the Fix -, the Fix is useless and won't work.
Please re-apply the Fix, but now read all the instructions very carefully, including the update step.

Ok, so I read in the instructions to use the fix with games 4 the world release of the game, so I'm gonna redownload the base game and all the expansion packs from your site, since I had downloaded them before from other site, and see if that fixes the problem.

I smell a windows update "action" (after 27/12/2011)

this append on two PC same install - auto-update OFF (all add-on except PET)

on same day, first the "sims laucher" repport error 16

i use the EXE to lauch the game and that work (for two times)

then the game report error

- files missing, re install the application to fix the problem!

dada,, nothing, same error again..



i will try to re-install all again and create image backup before proceed.

note:

in the Windows update there is Framework 4 as new and some fixes for x64 processors..

check your windows updates list from 20 to 28 december...

could be EA find a collaboration with Microsoft to reduce hack of the game!



Is just a personnel suspicion, but keep an eye on it!

if is not the Windows update then the SimsLaucher is the problem

possible she go to internet and do silent updates (try to cut it by Firewall)





more info:

note1:

also for protection i check the latest update (1.29) they include SECUROM (Paul.dll) who is check for CD..

if i install my official Sims3 CD all work good,

when i try to add any add-on, again error are generated!

note2:

that not happend under Vista (update to 8.0.152 and not pets installed)

New found..

The main problem is the latest patch protection with Win7 Winupdate!

I try several time to install my original game under Win7 and always problem..


-- Check this..

I do clean install of the official Sims 3

(pc original image restored with all Windows updates until 2 January 2012)


After install the Sims 3 (original CD) without any patch the game can't run via laucher

Launcher fail with crash and I try all know things like compatibility mode and DEP..



Next I use the latest patch 1.29 (862MB) that fix the launcher, but the game crash, crash crash,,,



Redo from start, install Sims 3 on restored PC..

-- >>>> There I use older patch 1.19,,, hourraaaa --------------- That work 100%



The conclusion,

In the last patch EA include their Serucom disk check (include Paul.dll for registration)

Even with official DVD game Sims 3 installed the game crash because win7 and securom are not compatible and this since the windows update from 18-20 December..2011




The problem is known from past many times when Windows made important security update of their main system files!

Securom crash application when Virtual CD software is installed on the PC (Nero/Alcohol/ old version DT)

Also problem when drives of CDROM are not Microsoft default drives!

Securom fail to start a game when CD Rom drives are not known.



At last don’t break your head why the game crash since the last patch all goes to hell (even with official versions) EA is the main guilty.

Provisory solution, do not use patch 1.29 and keep Pets in a corner and wait EA to improve their patch compatibility with Win7 system security.
The main joke in the story

Because always crack version have not those secure files, real customers with originals games are always penalized.



Note:

Even after uninstall the main game with securom protect, they always stay in our system and create conflict with other title with older or newer version securom protection.

there is some info about the protection

https://www2.securom.com/fileadmin/user_upload/downloads/SecuROM_PreView_and_ReView.pdf




The SecuROM™ PreView & ReView software components need to be placed into the same directory where
the protected application is located. These components consist of the following four files: PAUL.DLL,

LANG.INI and LOGO_PAUL.BMP.
