This replay may come a bit late, but what I would recommend is what I myself do in these cases: back up the ENTIRE "The Sims 3"-folder, located under Documents\Electronic Arts.

Granted, in my case the folder contains the entire store + installed worlds + a ton of customized mods/CC that I gathered over the years, with the help of some friends/former G4TW staff. It would take me ages to re-collect that stuff if the folder got lost someplace. And in my case the entire folder is 14GB. If I want to move to another computer or harddrive, I just shift this folder around.

No messing with new savegames or the broken launcher.

Piece of cake.
