Nice to know it's not just me. I get the "unable to start" error.

Sometimes I get a bout of crashing. I run the last patch before Origin in case some files have been corrupted and that seems to help. A reboot before starting the game will usually help too. I play TS3 on Win 7.

I have taken to rebooting everytime before I play, a pain in the arse more than anything else.  A fresh reboot does seem to help for a while.  I'll try running the last patch again, just in case something is screwed up.

Yep, something with the update affected the memory in Win 10.

I only play TS2 and was getting the crashes to the desktop.

Follow the tutorial in this link:-

I did and I've had a few days of no crashes at all.

I had a look at one of the links posted within that link.  Appears to be a known memory bug that has been in windows 10 for a while, and still not fixed yet. when I am more awake to concentrate and follow the instructions, I'll try the fix and see if it helps any.

The answer to your question is "not at all feasible". There is just no way to magically convert an x32 program to x64.

I know that TS3 is quickly approaching ancient status, but I'm in a thread over at MTS that's discussing potential avenues of improvement for TS3, specifically concerning upgrading TS3 to utilize 64-bit functionality (as well as griping about things that AwesomeMod already fixes because everyone only seems to use Twallan's mods on MTS). I know that Pescado was talking about doing extensive tinkering with TS3 when it stopped being updated, and I have been pretty absent from the Sims community for a few years, but I haven't seen any results of that since I've started lurking around here again. This whole place seems pretty dead nowadays.

Pescado, would you be interested in tackling such a fix? I'm not especially knowledgeable about how feasible it actually would be to do it, and I understand that it may very well be harder than the simpletons at MTS made it out to be. Also, have you actually been doing things with TS3, and would they be fit for public consumption?

Hey Aussieone, did you see the new TS2 clothes? Some are really nice.

I was curious if anyone else was having the same issue or just me.

Since windows 10 did the last major update/upgrade to the April 2018 edition, TS3 has been crashing to desktop a lot more that it ever use to.  It also doesn't say that TS3 has stopped or is shutting down, it just goes straight to desktop.  Before you ask, no it isn't just minimising the game, I have checked.  It usually does it without warning, no freezing, no glitching, just everything humming along nicely, then bang, the desktop.  I am thinking of doing to full, fresh, reinstall with the April 2018 version in case all the update/upgrades on updates/upgrades over time have slowly screwed things up.  I recall always being advised to do full, fresh installs, rather than upgrades to windows.

Just wondering if this is plaguing anyone else out there?
