We need a little more detail than that. What happened up to that point? Did the game work and then break? Did you add anything to the game?

There are several situations that can cause that error so the more you tell us the faster we can find a solution.

Hello,

And is it the entire game or just the launcher? See if you can bypass the launcher.

Hello,

The bypass was a link, in Lady ElDi's post: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1212-how-to-start-the-sims-3-without-the-launcher-fix
What about Mods, did you add any of those?
If not, what is your base game version?

Hello,

Please go to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\ and look for a folder called "Mods". If you have one, please back it up and then remove it.
After that test your game and let us know the result, please.

OK since you removed the mods, try this.

Go to C:/Users/Your_User_Name/My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 3 and delete the following files: scriptCache.package , compositorCache.package and CASPartCache.package. Then relaunch the game, it may take a few minutes to load as the game rebuilds those cache files.

Hello,

I think it's simply a launcher problem. I gave up on the launcher months ago because it kept crashing. Besides that, it just takes up time as it loads up, there's no benefit to starting the game with the "play" button on the launcher.
I bet your game works fine if you follow the directions to the TS3W.exe and use that to start the game.
