I have searched for answers to this but none are exactly like my problem that I have seen, others can still play the game. Basically I uninstalled Sims 3 and everything to do with it today as I wanted a clean install due to it slowing down and such. But now I have uninstalled it and re installed it a million times, each time I try to play it it tells me the launcher has stopped working and needs to close. I can't even get to play the game. I have no custom content installed or anything. My computer exceeds all the specifications and I'm running Windows 7. What can I try next please?
To be honest, the launcher really isn't useful. I don't know how to make it work, but the simplest way round this issue is just to right-click your Sims 3 shortcut, hit Properties, and in the Target box replace "Sims3Launcher.exe" with "TS3.exe". That'll run the game, bypassing the launcher.
