Sims 3 Launcher Crash [SOLVED]

Post by Amberrr92 on Tue 03 Apr 2012, 02:47

Hello,
First I will start with saying that I have:
Sims 3 base game
Generations
Ambitions
Pets
Late night
Showtime
And recently World Adventures.
All have been downloaded from Games4theworld torrents.
prior to downloading WA I was playing the game will all above listed expansions perfectly.
Now my launcher has crashed. I can not open it. I click on an Icon and it says "Launcher has stopped working, trying to resolve issue"
Before you ask I have applied the Ultimate Fix for all above expansions including WA.
This issue arose only after downloading WA.
Please Help me.
Thank you in advance.

okay,
Just tried that and it gave me the same message.
I'll attach a screen shot but there are no programs open that should prevent from my games starting.

EDIT//: I have done all have done the DEP with all the exe files including all the expansions to see if that would work put nothing and my games is up to date.

Hello,

Did you ever run your game in compatibility mode? If you have, did you also set the WA exe's to run in compatibility mode?

I don't know how to run my game in compatibility mode. but I added all the exe's in WA too. And I also when through and changed all the exe's to compatibility-widows 95 and run as administrator. Still nothing.

Hello,

I think you may want to try redownloading an reapply the manual patch and the fix, even though that seems pointless.

I have already done that before I posted this. when I uninstalled and re-installed the game I chose not to remove my saved game if that makes a difference on why the game is not opening now.

Hello,

No it doesn't, if your saves aren't good, you wont know until you try to load them.
Do you have mods/cc?

Hello,

Try this:

1. Go to Documents\Electronic Arts\
2. Drag & drop the "The Sims 3" folder in there to your Desktop and remove it from your Documents.
3. Start the game and let us know the result. Good luck!

Hello,

OK then. Don't forget to restart your PC after uninstalling and prior to reinstalling!
We'll be waiting for the result. Good luck!
