Sims 3 Launcher won't open and the game will not work.

★★★★ Newbie

So first of all, when I installed my sims game again, everything was fine until I clicked on the icon to run my game. When I clicked on it, after a while, a troubleshooting message came up on my screen saying "Sims3Launcher has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvience."I tried looking it up but found nothing that would actually work.

I then tried deleting origin but it didnt make a difference. So then I decided to try and run my game by going into electronic arts folder and clicking 'TS3.exe'. When I clicked that, it opened but stayed on the black screen and a minute after it just closed down? What should I do to actually get my game working?! Please help?!Confusedmileysad:

Hi melissavaxo,

 

There are two things you can try:

 

1. Close the game in the processes tab of your task manager.

 

2. Try to launch the game directly from your Origin client.

 

Please let us know if that helped you.

 

Thanks,

Ursula

I tried this and it still didn't work. The same thing happened.

Try re-installing it.

Or right click and select run as admin
