After about 30 minutes gameplay my Sims 3 crashes? Just got a new PC with Windows 8 and I think it might be Windows 8 fault, because I could run it on my old Vista PC. Any solutions to the problem?
There are lots of people playing The Sims 3 on Windows 8... you didn't give enough specific details ...
Use the search function at the top right hand side and look for the top solutions...

Windows 8.0 x64 - Sims 3 will either crash or it will cause my wife's new Toshiba laptop to do a forced re-start. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling 3 times with no luck. Sims 3 crashes the OS more than the program itself crashes. I've tried all the compatibility modes, doesn't work. Her laptop has 12GB of RAM, a 2M Cache, 2.40GHz Intel processor and Mobile Intel HM70 Express Chipset with Mobile Intel HD graphics with shared graphics memory. Her laptop has all the Microsoft updates installed. We've tried running some other games that came out before Win 8 and they run perfectly.
Freezes - Have not encountered any as of yet.
I tried installing them on my Win 7 Pro x64 with a Intel 3.1 quad core and 32gb Kingston HyperX RAM and it runs flawlessly.
We have the Sims 3 Starter Pack with Late Night & High End Loft, Supernatural Expansion Pack and Dragon Valley.
Once all are installed, you MUST use the Supernatural disk or NONE of the games will play.
I've read the posts claiming Sims 3 runs on Win 8, but if you read the PC System Requirements, Windows 8 is not listed.
I have been working on the same problem for days! Your solution worked! I did the same for all expansions found they were all over the place vista and 7 for example! Made them all compatible on 8 and it worked! Thank you so much!
