Hello,

You don't really need the launcher to play, but it can be a bit more challenging to install sims3packs without it. Try to double-click them (or select a couple, right-click and "open with".. Sims launcher). As long as the launcher starts, there's a chance the installation will continue.

Hello,

Here's how you can bypass the launcher to play the game.
If you're unable to use the launcher to install additional sims3packs, have a look at an alternative.

Thanks, but the files I want to download are the worlds and the link says that the worlds must be installed with the launcher. Sad So i guess I just won't be able to play in those worlds. Sad day.

Hello,

Unless we can get your launcher to work of course, it has worked before. See if the options here make any difference.

Hello,

What if you go into the base game\bin and try another launcher exe? There are, I believe, 3. It doesn't really matter which one you use.
Did you change anything at all after which the problem started?

Hello,

You could try uninstalling/reinstalling just the base game. Don't forget to restart the pc.
