Sims 3 Launcher Won't Open

I recently downloaded The Sims 3, as well as two expansion packs. I played the game fine for a few days, but I shut my laptop down and left it for a while. Now, after two days of not playing the game, the Sims launcher won't open. I've tried all three shortcuts as well as through Origin, but nothing works! Any advice?

Re: Sims 3 Launcher Won't Open

  • Do you get any error messages ?
  • What's your operating system ?
  • Did you patch to 1.63 ?

Re: Sims 3 Launcher Won't Open

Did you change anything on your system ? Update to Windows 8.1 ? Install BitDefender ?

 

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

As far as I know, nothing has changed. Every time I try to fix or uninstall the games, it says I can't because the application is running. What can I do to fix that?

 I have, but I figured out a way to uninstall the game and reinstall it. I will definitely make sure to update the game as well. Thanks so much for all your help!
