Are you updated to the latest patch ? What symptoms are you seeing ? Have you tried compatibility mode ?

im having the same issue. i ended up uninstalling my base game and reinstalling and that fixed my game launcher not opening issue. (otherwise download a manual patch online) but now im having problems inside the launcher itself. it will not install my custom content and when i click the play button it closes the launcher like its opening the game but the game never opens. im shattered about it! i hope someone finds a solution.

I'm having a different problem.
Just bought a new computer with windows 8 Pro 64bit version. installed all the games and patched to 1.42,
the game loads into a world, but as soon as i try to enter into gameplay of a family it shuts down. I ve tried with compatibility mode on or off and it STILL DOESNT WORK. ive got all exp packs up to supernatural.

I got the Sims 3 just in the last few weeks with the Humble Origin bundle. It does not work on windows 8 at all. EA needs to fix this. The game immediately crashes as soon as a family is chosen and the gameplay is about to begin. Every time. This is with the latest version, latest drivers etc.

I have windows 8 and mine works fine it may be your internet, or your processor my other computer did have one problem where it would freeze and the rain would keep going like I paused it but I hadn't though...
