My Sims 3 launcher crashes soon after launching it.
« on: February 06, 2014, 08:25:48 PM »
Hello, Ever since I updated to Version 1.67, I'm having an issue where about 30 seconds after I start up the launcher, the launcher crashes, if I'm quick enough, I can still play the Sims 3, however, this will obviously cause problems in the future for if I want to be in the launcher for any length of time. I have not had this problem before updating to the most recent patch. I have tried launching the launcher as an administrator and in compatibility mode for Windows XP.

Here's my setup:

OS: Windows 8.1 Basic 64-bit
Processor: Duo-Core Intel Core I5-3230M @ 2.60 GHz (Turbo Boost @ 3.10 GHz)
RAM: 8GB DDR3
Video Card: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 660M w/ 2GB GDDR5 VRAM

I have every Sims Expansion Pack and Stuff Pack besides Katy Perry's Money-Grab, I mean, Sweet Treats (Yes, I have to make a comment about it every time it comes up). If anyone can help me with this, I would highly appreciate this.
This is what I think of Katy Perry's Sweet Treats:

You didn't post what error or crash message the game gave you. So I'm assuming that it was similar to Sims 3 Has Stopped Working?

Here's a page that has some tips on helping with that.

Game Crashes (CTD)

From what we've been able to find it doesn't seem to matter whether you're using Window 7 or 8. Sims behaves the same either way.

Hope this helps, :)

In terms of Origin being updated, there was an update when I launched origin again (I usually just launch my Sims 3 game on it's own without origin which was working fine previously without any problems). After it updated, I kept origin up and started the launcher again. It stayed up without crashing, so I Decided now I'd try it again without origin up and it worked again, so yeah, I guess origin needs to be up-to-date for the sims to work, thanks guys.
