If I am able to download the Sims3 Create A World nothing happens when I try to open the CAW.  Is there any way to get around this & use the CAW?

Re: SIMS'3 - CAW

@cdsiren  I've moved your post to the Sims 3 PC tech section.


How to get CAW to work depends on what kind of install you have.  (If you happen to be on a Mac, then no, it won't work at all.)  There are two different versions, one each for patch 1.67 (disc) and 1.69 (Origin).  The Origin/1.69 version is a bit more finicky and doesn't always work as intended.  If you have a Steam install, you'd need the 1.67 version, but you'd also need to edit your computer's registry.


Let me know what type of install you have, and I'll try to help.


I don't work for EA. I'm just trying to help fellow players with their games.
