Sims3Launcher.exe states "There was an error during startup". [SOLVED]

Post by varun on Wed 16 Jan 2013, 22:15

I will try to explain as deeply as I can to best define the problem.

Specs of My PC

6GB ram + 1GB Nvidia Graphic card
Pentium Dual-Core 3.00GHz
64bit Window 7 Ultimate

* I have already installed all the expansion packs, The base game is on version 1.47.6.020002.
* Used the latest fix rar file from here
* Followed all the steps that was included in fix.rar file all the patches worked fine till point 9 i.e Outdoor living stuff.


but after I followed point 10 that was for Seasons & Supernatural & Diesel Stuff & Katy Perry's Sweet Treats & Showtime & Master Suite Stuff & Pets & Town Life Stuff & Generations my launcher gives the following error.



As my game is already updated with the latest version and since the above fix for seasons etc was not working I tried my hand to crack with #crack folder but the error was still the same.

Also tried this post's instruction but It was already fine as pictured here



If you can then please sort it out, I'm already dying to play after a total upload and download of 100GBs+.

Regards
Varun

I would say try the Registry Helper that our fellow user hexorcist created.

I'm going to try this and Registry Helper then I will revert with the results. Thanks for replying.



UPDATE

Registry helper shows that everything is fine but I'm still facing the same problem.

Could you give us a screenshot of your base game's installation folder please? Need the "Details View" that shows modification dates and file sizes.

Close, but not quite. In the screenshot above, you need to go into "The Sims 3", then "Games" and finally "Bin" and take a screenshot of that folder with the "Details View".

You need to redo the manual patch, and do the Ultimate Fix.

I'm not certain on the manual patch, but judging by the date of the skuversion.txt file there is no way it could be 1.47 since 1.47 was released in early January of 2013 and the modification date of your file is prior to 2013 - and that file is what holds the version information for your game, so it should be modified every time you install an update. Of course, the patcher could restore the old date but there's no harm in doing it again just to make sure it is the proper version.

Hi, I'm having the same problem.



My launcher was working but I did the ultimate fix because I couldn't update the game. Now the launcher won't open and the box "send Microsoft error report" appears. That's the caption of the error file.

The game works if I run it directly from the .exe in sims 3/game/bin.

GameVersion = 1.42.130.019002



//EDIT

I deeply apologize!

I found the manual patch, updated the game, then cracked it and the launcher works fine.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! You're awesome!
