Does the game work if you bypass Launcher - Game Help:TS3 Bypassing the Launcherwiki?
The path you have in the image is weird, did you install the game to a custom path as above? Do you have
- Sims3Launcher.exe,
- Sims3LauncherW.exe,
- TS3.exe, and
- TS3W.exe in that path?
Or, is that your user documents path?

What gameversion is the base game on?

What is your base game version? Ellacharmed posted a link on how to find that.

I'm having this issue now, I hope this gets solved! I can load up the game directly from TS3.exe or TS3W.exe., but because of this issue I cannot install any custom content to my game through TS3packs!

I installed my game on a custom path as well. I hope this thread gets revived, because I've only seen 3 threads like this with no solution, help!

EDIT: I have installed Sims 3 on a custom path on my old PC (on another HDD entirely), and I could still install content just fine. I'm not sure what's different this time.

use delphi multi installer and extract the package file from the sims3pack. rename the package file to the same name as the sims3pack and put it in your mods folder.

I would guess the OS is different.

Sanity is overrated.

Nitromon is a type of Pokemon encountered in the Pokemon Nitrome Version series.

There. Mystery solved.
