This guide will tell you all you need to know.

I followed the Guide exactly and I'm still having the same problems. I can't start the game from the launcher or the Bin folder. What should I do next?
Hello,

Do you get an error or something?

Yes, when ever I attempt to start the game from the bin I keep getting error (0x0175dcbb). When I try to start the game from the launcher I keep getting some Check log error.

I downloaded CCleaner but I'm not sure what I should select. I did a registry cleaner option to start with

Hello,

That seems to be the same registry error as before. Try running Ccleaner.

Hello,

Just do a normal scan and a registry scan. No need to change anything. After that, restart your PC and tell us the result.

Hello,

Ok lets do a detailed step by step work out of the problem.
You uninstalled The Sims 3 and its expansions, and restarted the pc before you reinstalled it? Did you do anything else after uninstalling? Ran Ccleaner, or did you perhaps use an uninstaller program when you uninstalled?

Hello,

In addition to what Lady ElDi said, please open your game launcher and hover your mouse over the base game icon in the lower-left corner of the screen. What version does it show? It starts with 1.xx.x .

Wait, was I supposed to uninstall the games and restart the computer? I just ran CCLeaner. Should I uninstall them?

I think it's 1.32. When i attempt to
open the launcher I keep getting this "check the log error" and all it
shows for version is 0.00.000. But, when I try to manually update the
launcher to 1.32 it says i'm already at that version.

Hello,

Please do step 4 to 8 from this page: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v132-fix-manual-patch-updated

When it says you're already on 1.32, there should be an option to choose "Yes".

As it turns out I'm still running 1.31. I have already applied the Ultimate Fix so I get the message "Invalid file Found" when I try to manually update it to 1.32.

I don't think it'll let me downgrade to 1.31, so do I have to uninstall the games in order to finish those steps?

I tired the new fix and am STILL getting the same errors. I don't know what else to do, I've tired everything. Can you give me a step by step installation instruction for my games. I have The Sims 3, The Sims 3 Late Night and (of course) The sims 3 Generations.

//EDIT

I mean the Sims 3 Showtime

Hello,

Ok, uninstall everything, run ccleaner, then restart your pc.
Then, according to this guide, reinstall your game and expansions.
In your case this means, install base (don't crack), install Showtime (allowing it to update to 1.31, don't crack), install Late Night (don't crack).
now, download and install this manual patch and download the fix.
Extract the fix, open the installation guide and look at step 13. Open the #crack folder (in the fix) and apply the 2 files as specified in the installation guide.
