Sims 3 keeps downloadindg untill not responding. [SOLVED]

Post by Teos on Sat 23 Jun 2012, 22:16

I used to have Sims 3 installed, and I used to play it quite nice (I have sims3 complete... with all expansions downloaded from you guys)
And I followed instructions for ultimate fix. And when all was done I tried to play, but when game launcher opens, and I click play it starts to download, and it keeps downloading... and after a while game launcher shows the text Not responding. Can anyone help?

Hello,

You click "Start" and it starts to... download?

Hello,

Oh, sorry for the miscommunication.
Do you have any Mods or Custom Content?

Ok... I did the Dep thing, as it said, and it didn't worked, it will not allow me to add Sims3Launcher.exe to the DEP exclusion list And sence I used to play on this same computer, I do not have to check if I can run Sisms, or to check my Video card...

So.. I guess All I have left is to try uninstall and install Sims 3 again?

Yes, I'm pretty sure I did it right... I already did it before... I can uninstall all Sims and try to install it again... Except I used ultimate fix that goes with Sims 3 complete game

I'll try with new ultimate fix

Hello,

Hehe, so you didn't do as instructed on that page?
The Fix that comes with the "Complete pack" thing you downloaded, is way out-dated and not working any more. That's why you have to re-download the latest version of the Fix.

Please let us know the result afterwards and good luck!
