It's asking you to delete that one because it's not valid. It's not the same as what it's reading for the information for any expansions that you have - installed or not. Here's an example of what I mean:

If these keys are valid in your registry:
HKLM\Software\The Sims 3 70s 80s & 90s Stuff
HKLM\Software\The Sims 3 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff

One of the two IS invalid - and that is the one it's asking you to delete. It will never ask you to delete a key that is valid.

That's because the mediafire account is down. A new link will be posted when there is a new place that has it uploaded to. Hexorcist (The creator of the helper) hasn't even been on in a while, so we can't have him just post a mirror link to it.

Sure you can, all ya gotta do is ask. I get emails when people reply to topics that I've started.

NOTE: This has not (and will not) be updated to include expansions/stuff packs post 70s, 80s and 90s Stuff. Do -not- use this if you have installed any of the newer expansions as it -will- cause issues.

Hello Hexorcist,

Why won't you update it to support all the new(er) expansion packs too?

Hello Hexorcist,

Why won't you update it to support all the new(er) expansion packs too?

Cost/benefit analysis.

Cost of posting a new link:
- About 5 minutes time including the reply to this thread

Benefit:
- The person requesting the program (and others) get the program as it was when I last posted it, which is what the user requested. He didn't request an update, he requested the program itself.

Cost of updating:
- Reinstall every expansion and stuff pack: hours
- Cost of purchasing expansions I hadn't already: $40USD or more (I think only University Life has been released but I'm not sure)
- Digital download of expansions I do not already have: hours (depending on servers, at minimum 1 hour)
- Hard drive space: 30+ GiB
- Analysis: probably 3 minutes looking at the registry, and a variable amount of time testing various changes to the new registry keys for the new expansion(s)
- Coding: 5-10 minutes probably, not including gathering new icons for the expansions
- Testing: Variable

Benefit:
- The tool is updated to support one extra expansion.

Based on that cost/benefit analysis, it's much more beneficial to just post the version that already exists and sits in in my archived backups on one of my linux machines. If the cost outweighs the benefit (and it DOES) .. it's largely considered to be a waste of time in most cases.

Hello there,

I meant updating it for everyone, since I thought you were sharing your tool here. But I assume you're not updating it any more.
And who said you have to buy the expansion packs? Just download them, the files are the same as the original disc versions. (If your download finishes within 2 hours, you're pretty lucky)

But OK, I'm not going to argue, it's your tool.

Hi, is there any hope of this coming back? Even the filedropper is down. Or could someone upload their copy?

Hello guys I am new here. What finally happened with the "Registry Helper"? I have tried everything to get rid of the "there was an error during start up see the log for more details" pop up when I try launching The Sims 3. It seemed like my last chance to actually play the game :(Any advice?

 
//EDIT


*Oh and I am not able to make a new thread about my problem. Thats why I mention it here. (It says I have not posted the required number of posts to be allowed to creat a thread.)
