Launcher Constantly Crashing
Hello all,

I purchased The Sims 3 along with a few expansions over the awesome Steam Holiday Sale. I'm having problems with the launcher constantly crashing when I fire up the game. It just says something along the lines of "SIMS3 Launcher has stopped working". I have attempted to fire it up numerous times(not sure if any of you were familiar with Fallout: New Vegas's widely known launcher crashes). I have verified the intergrity of the file and reinstalled twice. Still can't get anywhere as the launcher crashes right away.

This is a clean install, no mods or anything.

Has anyone else come across this issue?

Just a thought... I'm guessing your system is running a program in the background which is causing this. It may be something which loads automatically on startup.

Did some deeper research into known issues and their possible solutions and came across this:

https://help.ea.com/article/dep-settings-for-sims-3-on-vista-and-windows-7

I followed the instructions on that page and was able to get the Launcher to finally come up!

HOORAY I can play my game!
