Literally none of these solutions have worked for me :'(
Done everything on this thread, including clearing the registry of anything sims3 related before re-installing etc.
I still get this Error message. No idea why, because it worked fine a few months ago.
Log is completely blank......
My sims4 has done the same as well, not sure if it's related...
@y6o539nsfr4 Since this error is affecting multiple games, this is likely a system issue. So it would be helpful if you could run a dxdiag and attach the results to a post here. That will show information about a lot of potential problems at once.
