Sims 3 Launcher Not Working. [SOLVED]

Post by sherlockohms on Sun 14 Oct 2012, 18:58

I tried installing some items from the store via your Mediafire account, (thanks SO much by the way! Very Happy), and now the launcher application doesn't work at all. I have to manually start the game via the game's execution file, and I'd really like to actually install all the stuff I downloaded. I'm hoping there's a way I can solve this issue without reinstalling everything.
Once more, the launcher won't work, either from the desktop shortcut OR the actual application file. It won't start from clicking on the downloaded files, it won't start at all.

Hello,

Do you have Origin installed?
If not, please download it here: www.origin.com/download and then test the game again.

I updated Origin, and the problem persists.

//EDIT

It won't open from within the game, either.

Hello,

What if you backup and then remove this folder: Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3

Try to open the launcher, and let us know if that works.

Okay! I restarted my computer and deleted/restored the folder, and it works like a charm! Thank you!
