Sims 3 Will Not Launch

I have a MacBook and downloaded The Sims 3 from "GameTreeMac" via digital download. I played the game for about a week, but now it won't launch. I click on it and the icon shows up for 5 seconds then disappears. How do I solve this issue?

No...I have tried bypassing the launcher, but that does not work either.

Re: Sims 3 Will Not Launch

So are you saying I wasted $30 purchasing the game because I cannot play it?
