Toddlers stuff won't work even with error 3 fix [SOLVED]

Post by wylliebee on Tue 29 Aug 2017, 11:07

So, like most, I've encountered the issue of not having the game work after installing Toddler's Stuff pack, where the window pops up on the task bar for only a few seconds then dissappear. So, I've downloaded the Error 3 fix and still it won't work? Is there anything else that needs to be done?

Hi there,



Was your game updated to Fitness prior to installing the Toddler's Stuff pack? By not working, does the game not start at all or is there any other error popping up? Check your task manager to see if Sims 4 is lingering around in the background process as well, and if it is, kill it. Also, you can try running the game in windowed mode to see if it opens.

Yes, my game is updated with Fitness stuff pack. I tried a lot of different ways (couldn't remeber them exactly, I was basically just tinkering around) and at the end, instead of the game not opening at all, a window pop up saying unable to start.....update origin to blah blah blah. Now, I'm trying to reinstall everything back (minus toddler stuff) to at least get my old game back.

Origin? Is your installation folder still in EA folder? Also, before re-installing everything, double-check your windows defender and anti-virus as well.

Do keep us updated if you're able to at least play again till Fitness. If yes, and you wanted to updated the game, you can make a copy of your working sims 4 folder, rename it to sims4backup (or anything), before updating to Toddler's stuff. That way there's no need to re-install everything again.

Oh no, I've relocated the Sims 4 folder away from the EA one. But I'm still getting that pop up. I may have to try to uninstall and re-install the whole game from scratch  Why. Why. Why.  about that back up folder, I'm an idiot I should have thought of that earlier  IAmSoHappyEmergahwd IAmSoHappyEmergahwd IAmSoHappyEmergahwd  I won't lose my CCs and Save files and houses if I uninstall won't I? I did make a back up for the EA folder that contains all that just in case.

Hahaha. You won't lose anything, since you have already made a backup copy. Just be careful you did not accidentally delete them.  Very Happy

Just keep us updated once you're done though! Very Happy

So far so good Smile I uninstalled the game and re-installed it according to the procedure listed in Tarac's link Smile and it worked!! only thing is I might have to re-install the fitness pack in because apparently the game gave me a window saying that your uninstall pack is currently downloading, a notification will be given once it has finished and I checked to see what was missing it was the fitness stuff, so yeah I'll try and re-add it in. But I got my game back!! Very Happy

Glad to hear you've got the game working again. Would you like me to close the thread or you prefer it to be opened in case you decide to install the Toddler's stuff again?

Alrighty! Problem solved for sure!

I suggest whoever has the error problem, and have installed the error fix, but still couldn't get the game, and possibly have tinkered around with the files to the point that you can't remember what you did, to uninstall your game, and re-install it according to the instructions and correct order given in the link given by Tarac Smile   (I suggest you also re-download the toddlers stuff and fix from the link given)

For sure you'll get your game back, plus Toddlers Stuff!


EDIT:
Problem solved; Topic closed.
Cheers!
