The sims launcher can always get messed up. I used to keep the fix in a file but it is lost now. I have the internet explorer error but that wasn't the original issue the day it happened I had not used internet explorer.
I cannot log in download my content in the sims 3 store. which is everything. I bought it all. Is the anyway to download manually.
I use firefox/modzilla and dubbed it down for this site browser is clear and history... please help. I dont enjoy Sims 4 and would like to play my Sims 3
@kathrine99 With Edge, you can allow certain sites to load in Internet Explorer mode, which should fix the launcher issue:
You may also need to clear Edge's IE data, described at the end of this article:
Hi. I am also having the same problem. I am logged into Origin and thesims3.com however, the launcher won't let me log in. This is not a "my computer" problem as it is happening on two different computers. One is running Windows 7 and one is running Windows 10. I don't even play the version on the Windows 10 machine so there is no reason it should not be working. This is an internal Origin/EA problem and they need to fix it!
Ok. My launcher is working properly now. Why? Because I switched from my slow internet to my mobile hotspot. Yeah, that was the fix. After uninstalling my game and reinstalling everything. I only had a VERY SLOW connection which did not allow me to connect. I hope this helps someone in the future as it drove me nuts for the last two days.
My advice: when you can connect, download all of your purchased content and store the files on an external drive for future use.
