Sims 3 "Error during Start-up" Video Fix doesn't work [SOLVED]

Post by lizbert_81 on Mon 14 May 2012, 20:14

Hello.

I have a purchased version of the Sims 3 and then downloaded copies of Ambitions, Generations, Pets, Showtime, Fast Lane Stuff and Town Life Stuff. The game used to work fine but then I had outside computer issues and was forced to reformat my computer and reinstall everything and since then the game doesn't work. I followed the installation instructions and I have both manually updated my game and applied the ultimate fix yet I am still getting the "error during start-up, please see log".

I watched the video but as I said since I had to reformat my drive and reinstall everything the issue with previous versions not being removed from the registry doesn't apply to me and as far as I can tell my registry is correct. It seems others are also having this problem so if anyone can help please do so!

CHEERS!

Hello,

Are you sure you watched this video and followed all the steps: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t4650-the-sims-3-error-during-startup-video-fix-out-now ? Never assume something, but really check it. The Sims 3 can be really nasty sometimes.

Yes. That is the exact video I watched and it did not solve my issue.

HOWEVER, I downloaded FordGT90Concept's Sims 3 Crash Log Analyzer from MODtheSims3 and after running the program it said the skuversion file for one of my expansions (in my case Late Night) was missing or corrupted and once I uninstalled the expansion my game worked perfectly.

I am now in the process of redownloading that expansion from Games4theworld (as my previous version was from another source) and hopefully after that I will be able to reinstall it with out issue. Though as I said my game currently works perfectly (though I am momentarily without Late Night).

I therefore suggest to all those who have this same issue and cannot fix it by deleting the extra files in the registry as suggested in your video fix that they also download the Crash Log Analyzer and see if it can help them find what files they might need to repair.

Thanks for the help though.

**I FIXED IT!!**
