Fixing TS3 Windows Error When All Else Fails

[Note to Admin and Moderators; Note Sure Where To Place]


How I Solved This Issue. I hope nobody has it but if you do, here's how I solved it.

##################################
Ahhh, now applying the fix multiple times didn't help solve my issue. Un-installed many times. However.
The last time, I un-installed every expansion but The Sims 3 base game. Now, follow carefully
The Base Game should already be the current update. 1.33 as on the 13th April 2012
Start by Installing one of the following: Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life or Generations FIRST, so before any other.
I installed Generations first (My fave expansion). Follow the Instructions by G4TW. Apply the necessary crack and files in the folder.
After installing one of the above, apply the Ultimate Fix for 1.33 (yes even though you installed one game). Please Don't start playing yet if you want more expansions, it should work if you do play though.
Now, start installing every expansion/stuff pack you want, by following this;


Follow G4TW Instructions on Notepad. [For World adventures ignore updating with patches; apply Crack Folder 2 and 4 move to C:\Program Files(86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin, for Local Machine change to 1, then change back to 2 I applied crack steps after install - lol]

After Installing the games Apply the Crack or Cracks from the G4TW Game Folder to the right places [should be said where in the instructions], not Ultimate Fix crack.

Now, Apply the Ultimate Fix. For everything, Base Game again, re-copy it and Apply the Ultimate Fix after every new install.

I didn't install Town Life, Outdoor Living and High Living so not sure if it would work but if you follow the instructions should do. Here's a bullet form of what I suggest.

* Un-Install Everything but Base Game (should be 1.33)
* Re-Download Either Showtime, Generations, Master Suite, Pets or Town Life.
* Follow their Instructions, Apply their cracks. Ignore Updates/Patches [lower updates, not necessary]
* Apply Ultimate Fix.
* ############
# More Expansions/Stuff #
* Follow Expansion/Stuff Instructions. Ignore World Adventures Crack Folder 2 and 4. Ignore Outdoor Patch Folder.[Already updated higher]
* Ignore Updates.
* Apply the Expansion/Stuff crack/s.
* Apply Ultimate Fix like you haven't done it, re-do everything of everything you have at time. You will gradually do more.
* Install another expansion/stuff.
* Ignore Updates. Apply their cracks.
* Apply Ultimate Fix to everything installed so far.
* Repeat. INSTALL AND APPLY THEIR CRACKS. THEN APPLY ULTIMATE FIX AND CRACKS NO NEED TO UPDATE.
APPLY FIX AFTER EVERY INSTALL


Ultimate Fix after each one. Plus, DO NOT FORGET THE ULTIMATE FIX CRACK WHEN USING THE FIX. YES I KNOW YOU REPLACE THE FILES FOR TS3W.EXE WITH CRACK FILES. Good to do it, but miss out the check for update or manual patch.
The Sims Plumbob 1 I really hope this works for you. The Sims Plumbob 1

Hello,

Sounds good but, note that placing the cracks for each expansion is pointless because the fix will overwrite those cracks immediately.
I do think it's a good idea to apply the entire fix when you finish installing, that has worked for others.
