Sims 3 Error Code 15

[ Edited ]

When I try to save my game on The Sims 3, it comes up saying that it can not save because of 'Error Code 15'. I saw an answer for this saying that there must be invalid characters in the save game title, but there are none. Have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game. 

I have had the Sims installed previously with no problem, and I have checked that I have access to the save game files on the computer. 

Fixed, just had to run the game as administrator.

Re: Sims 3 Error Code 15

Have you already tried everything that is mentioned here?


Save Errors (Error 12, 13, 15, 16) by crinrict

While saving I get the error message: "Error 12 (or 13 or 15 or 16). Please see Read-Me for more information".


Usually you should be able to fix this by starting the game as administrator.
