Try the factory reset described in this post: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps/td-p/714/

Try bypassing the launcher as described here: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/FAQ-Troubleshooting-Steps/td-p/714/


This is just for testing purposes to see if the game itself works.

So the game works but the launcher doesn't, do you I understand that right ? The launcher crashes on startup ?

 

What error do you get when you do a factory reset ? The same one ?

 

What's your oprating system ?

Try if doing DEP for the launcher does anything for you: http://www.simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Data_Execution_Prevention

You will need to add the following file: Sims3LauncherW.exe instead of ts3w.exe

 

Also try starting the launcher with admin right and compatibility mode.

Dep mode is not active for sims 3 so launcher keeps getting crash.

I try'd to use Crash log analayser but he don't find a crash.

Also tryed all compatibelmodes with admin rights and not help either.

 

If i reinstall may that help or will i get same error ?

please help me out

The Crash Log Analyzer is for game crashes only not for launcher crashes.

 

Since the game itself works, I don't think reinstalling will help.

 

Let me ask some people at thesims3.com website. Maybe someone there has an idea. I'll get back to you.

Got a few suggestions back

 

  • Reinstall base game (which you since did and didn't help)
  • Make sure Origin is updated
  • Make sure IE9 is installed
  • Clear cookies and caches on IE9
  • Make sure you have the interne connection is running and nothing is blocking
  • Turn off internet to see if it runs then.
