Join Date: Feb 2012
Hi guys, I recently downloaded Sims 3 pets onto my computer to get back into Simming. I got an error message, it suggested uninstalling. So I uninstalled the base game and pets, and reinstalled. I still get the error message. Both games work fine on my laptop.
The message I get is:
"C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\Sims3Launcher.exe
The application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem."
The launcher won't come up at all, I've tried opening the .exe file itself to bypass the launcher but I get the same message.

Which .exe do you use to bypass the Launcher? Game Help:TS3 Bypassing the Launcherwiki
Sims3Launcher should be the Sims3LauncherW.exe
And what version is the base game on? Did you via Launcher or manually? Prompted to by the Pets install or patched separately before installing Pets?
Have you done as the error suggested and reinstall? Preferably after a FULL and clean Uninstall as shown in the Uninstall FAQ.
