View Full Version : EIG Not Working? Please Help
6th Aug 2011, 8:41 AM
Hi, I have had so many problems with CAW..I just want to scream! Ok first off, it has been crashing (which I can deal with because I save a lot)..but recently, I think after I patched my game, it stopped working. I was getting the incompatible message because I don't have Town Life. So I read this thread http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=450303 and got it working. But now I can't edit in game. I read somewhere that I should start up EIG and exit out of CAW but it didn't work. When it's loading my world, it'll stop and say that The Sims 3 has stopped working. Does anybody know what I should do? I am really desperate because I want to finish my first world! Ugh!

Ack, you poor thing. You have been having lots of trouble. I was happy to see on the other forum, that you had gotten it working, and now this. It must be a lesson in patience, and perseverance.
A few questions;
Do you have it on LAA (Large Address Aware)? I always forget to relink it when I have to do a reinstall of Caw.
Did you reinstall Caw with the latest version, 1.11.12 ? the only place I've been able to locate the actual version # is in control panel/Uninstall Programs. It lists all your programs, and what versions they are.

I have been having so many problems! ;( I just want to finish my world! Thank you so much for helping! I know a little about computers, but the LAA just made me confused. I tried, but I got to the part where I download The Sims 3: Large Address Aware and ran it. Everything came out false except for Late Night, which was true..this confused me. I have the 1.11.12 version.

You don't have to connect up you're sims games anymore, last I heard. EA enabled them on their own. You just need to do Caw. This always fixes my crashing issues.
Check this out,

Is LAA only for 32 bit OS's? I believe I have a 64 bit. I just tried it and it still gives me the message when loading my world in EIG. It just says that it has stopped working.

It's not helping my problem, so I just gave up on it. I just want to play CAW :(

LAA does work for me. Caw crashes, and gives me error messages if I don't have it linked up. I have heard you don't need it if you're running a 64bit system, which I am, so I have no explanations for it. I'm only trying to help her troubleshoot with possible fixes I've used myself.
