The Sims 3 + expansions unable to start.[SOLVED]

Post by Sarui on Sat 28 Jul 2012, 09:22

Hey, I hope you can help me!
I downloaded the base game with all the expansions and stuff packs and installed in order except Outdoor stuff. I followed everything how it's written in the *MUST READ*. Applied the patch, cracks everything already twice still no success.

When I start the launcher it says unable to start, tried to use the fix, nothing, tried to start with TSW.exe(or i dont know exactly), nothing.

I'm using TOSHIBA laptop, with Windows 7, 32 BIT, I dont have so much RAM (2GB), but I checked on the website, and it says I can run the sims and all the expansions. Anyway my problem is not crushing to the desktop because of overheating (yet) because the game doesnt even start.
I did the changes in DEP....etcetc Tried everything by myself, now I really need your help!

Please help, I really want to play Smile

Hello,

Is it a service initialization error? And if so, which error code are you getting?

Hello,

Ok, what is your next step? Because you can't update the base at this point without installing at least one of the following expansions: Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff or Generations, the fix requires one of those.

I know, My next step is World Adventures, so should I follow the Installation Guide for this?
I want to install everything if its possible.
Should I put everything without the final cracks and then let you know?
Thank you for your help!

Hello,

I'd start with the manual patch at this point, that way you can skip updating everything as you're installing your games.
And you can ignore the installation guides, with the exception of changing SKU for WA, and of course the serial keys.
When finished, only use the crack from the fix, no other cracks.

Hello,

If you still have the RAR files, reextract them (with winrar). That might just do the trick.
