Sims 3 still won't work

Post by Emina on Tue 03 Jan 2012, 12:14

Okay, so. I already posted my problem, but since i can't find it, i made a new threat. Anyways, i opened the "The Sims 3 Crashes/freezes to desktop fix update" and i tried from step 1.
1. Running the game in compability mode:
I couldn't find the compability tab. So i went on to the 2 one.
2. BE SURE TO ADD ALL OF THE GAME'S .EXE FILES TO THE DEP! (Scroll down for *NEW* instructions video!)
I have no idea what DEP even is, and where it is, and when i googled it, didn't give me much help.
I skipped it.
The 3. step the video won't open, so i couldn't do anything about it.
The notes didn't help much either.
I tried something from older posted threats, i started the game, worked fine, but when i started building mode it freezed!
Sorry for being a bother !

Hello,
Your topic was moved to the right section.
Try the DEP, it solves these crashing issues for most people. Watch this video for instructions.

Hello,
Are all your hardware drivers up to date and have you checked that your pc meets all of the requirements?

Congratulations, your computer passes the minimum specification required to run this product.

Hello,
That shouldn't cause your problem then. Are your drivers up to date?

Hello,
That's more Admin's thing I guess. If you want, you can contact him in the chatbox when he's online to ask him to take a look. I'm not experienced with teamviewer and I'm on an old, XP system, it probably wouldn't do you much good.
Admin will probably be here in a couple of hours.
