Sims 4 won't start after toddlers stuff pack [SOLVED]

Post by DNCE on Mon 18 Sep 2017, 00:00

I installed the Toddlers stuff pack just as it said on the txt file. But when I try to start the game (as administrator), nothing happens.. The icon shows up on the bottom of the screen but then it closes again. No ''error'' screen or anything.. Someone who can help me?

Hi there,

Have you installed the rest of the packs, up till Fitness, before updating to Tot's stuff? Do open up Task Manager to see if there's any Sims 4 running in the background.

Thank you for your reply,

I installed everything in the correct order. I opened task manager and it said it was running when I tried to run the game, but it was out of the task manager when the sims 4 closed again..

Do you think there is a way to fix this or is the only option to uninstall and install everything again?

Hmm. I see. Try moving your Sims 4 to Program Files instead and see if it launches. (Or you can move around in the D Drive or external disk, provided your anti-virus/windows defender are turned off).

Was the game able to run before updating to Tot's stuff? Try running in windowed mode or running a compatibility troubleshoot to see if it helps. If all else fails, you may try to re-install the game again, pack by pack to see where the problems starts.

I tried to put it in a different folder but it didn't work unfortunately Sad 
I guess I'll just have to install everything again. 
Thank you for your help anyway!

I am having the same problem.  I not only reinstalled the game from the base up, I redownloaded them all.  The game opens just fine right up to fitness then as soon as Toddlers goes in it won't open.  I tried moving the whole file to program files before I redownloaded and reinstalled everything.  Is there a fix yet for this problem?

Hi!
For me it doesn't work also. It says error 3 and I cannot play. Only main menu opens.

Install toddler stuff pack, then the error 3 fix. If your game won't start, try copy all files from the new Game folder to the old renamed one and change the name back to Game. It worked for me, hopefully it'll solve your problems too Smile

Hi, thanks for sharing the possible solution (Noemi19). Have you both tried doing the above? Also regarding the error code 3, the fix can be found here -> http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t31459-the-sims-4-error-code-3-game-starts-unexpectedly-in-spanish-fix


If you have no 'old' game folder, try deleting your current Game folder and replacing it with this one here. It would be less time-consuming to just download the this one instead of the error code 3 above.


@DNCE : Did you re-install your game yet? If not, try doing the steps above and see if you're able to run the game.
Do keep us updated!

I copied all files from the new game folder to the old one and it worked!! The only problem I am facing now is that the game is in Spanish  Oh my... But I bet there is a solution for that right? 

Thank you so much!

EDIT: I applied the error 3 fix and it's english again! Thanks Noemi19 and Ageha for the help!
