      im wondering if i can play this game without internet connection ..

      1. Thanks for visiting our site. Please make sure you replace the ts3.exe on C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\ (this is the default DIR). If you did but still doesn’t work let us know more about it.

    4. yow brother i installed this sims 3 and update it

      that you have the right copy of sims3 ??

      latest version .. i did last time you guys told me
      but this time nothings happen ..

      help guys .. thanks in advance !!

      1. Try to recopy the ts3.exe to the installation folder (C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\). if that doesnt work you need to uninstall and re-install the game and do it all over again (Copy TS3.exe and TSLHost.dll)… recommended to start this game from ts3.exe (from bin folder – create a shortcut to desktop) not from launcher.

    5. i shared this site to my friends that also likes sims
      were thinking about updating this sims to 1.36.45
      but its not working ..

      its say that “disc autorization failure” we are unable to recognized that you have the right copy of sims3 ??

      i think new TS3.exe is needed do you have it guys ?

      i try wat you said brother ..
      but before loading the game its automatically executed
      and says “QUIT” or CONTINUE ..

      i try continue but nothings happen
      wat should i do ?

      1. try to click quit and recopy the ts3.exe files to the bin folder and maybe that will work without re-installing the game. try it bro….

    7. i tried to recopy the ts3 only in the bin
      but it didnt work.

      what should i do?
      i have finished updating the new version of the sims3
      and then again it didnt authenticate acc. to it.

      1. If that the case you need to re-install the game…

        uninstall and re-install the game and do it all over again (Copy TS3.exe and TSLHost.dll)… recommended to start this game from ts3.exe (from bin folder – create a shortcut to desktop) not from launcher.

    8. me too experiencing same problem ..
      i update this sims to latest 1.36.45 but it says
      “disc autorization failure” we are unable to recognized that you have the right copy of sims3 ?? please contact your service provider?

      i try to copy the ts3.exe from crack folder and replace the ts3 of bin folder
      but then again authorization failure?

      is this means we need updated TS3 ? for the new version or wat ?
      help me pls ..

      1. You can not updated the game when it is cracked, unless you have the latest version crack… please read the comment for more details… If you like the game please buy it…

      1. You will find it on the folder where you install the game. If you install it by default you will find it here C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin\.

      1. Hi tasnia,
        Is this your first time to install a game?
        please locate your game DIR (folder) on your drive c: then go to your program files folder then find the folder Electronic Arts, The Sims 3, Game, and Bin.
        if you can’t find it you will need to uninstall and reinstall the game.

    9. Yes, this is my first time installing a game.
      I tried re-installing it 3 times, but each time it never makes an “Electronic Arts” folder for me in program files. I don’t understand why.
      I do download it by default and it makes a folder in Documents instead. When it makes a folder in Documents, there is never a “Bin” folder either.
      Please try to help me, I really am interested in playing this game.
      Thanks in advance for your help!

      1. Here’s how to install the game:
        Please locate the downloaded folder
        Burn or mount ISO file on a virtual drive (ex. demon tools of PowerISO)
        Install and Use this IEHZ-HFXR-B5H4-37V2-1911 when prompted for serial
        Copy the content from the Crack folder to the folder of your “The Sims 3″ installation folder C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin
        That’s all…

        If you do not have any virtual drive you can search demon tools and get free version…

    10. Okay, I’ve got that figured out but now when I try to paste the items from the Crack folder I get the error message “There is not enough space in Sims3. You need an additional 15.1 MB to copy these files”. What do I do now?

      1. Hi Tasnia,

        Sad to say that your hard drive is already full… please make sure that your hardrive has enough hard drive space

    11. Great!
      I don’t know what happened or what I did, but it works now!
      Thank you so much admin, I can finally play this game :)
      This is definitely an incredible site :D

      1. That is good! We are happy that you like our site… please support us by liking or sharing our site… thank you…

      1. If you can copy the files on the c-r-a-c-k folder correctly you wont need to mount the image file (disk) anymore…

    12. When I tried to open the TS3 application, there is a system error which says d3dx9_31.dll is missing from my computer. What shoud I do? Thanks in advance!!

    13. Good Evening,

      When I attempted to install the file, it stated the following : The setup has detected that no version of The Sims 3 is installed. This update requires that a previous version of the application be installed. However there is no file that I can use to install. I have looked and am at a complete loss.

      Thank you in advance for your help and support.

      1. Hello Christina,

        Please read comments as there’s already answers on your questions…

        Anyway here’s the method on how to install the game:
        Locate the downloaded folder.
        Burn or mount the ISO file on a virtual drive (ex. demon tools of PowerISO)
        Install this addon using the provided code above
        Right click the image file and copy the content from the crack to the folder of your “The Sims 3″ installation folder C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin (overwrite when asked)
        Now play… If you like the game support the developers.

    14. I’ve copied the files over etc and i click to run it, it goes to the update, play etc screen and like 20 seconds in it says it has stopped working. what should i do ?

      1. @matt, try to turnoff your internet connection before installing it… try to read comments in this page we have solve this issue in previous comments and it is working

    15. it says something about that it’s been blocked because of spy/virus activity. I turn the setting off and restart my computer as it says but nothing, it sucks, i really want to play :(

      1. @Aleks, demon tools or PowerISO are software where you can mount the image it is a virtual drive like DVDrom. All you have to do is install the following software, right click the image file (like cd Image) and then mount… like inserting the dvd to your Dvdrom…

    16. This is not really a request, I just want to ask something and I can’t find your “Contact Us” so… I downloaded the base game of Sims 3 and well… it works, alright but I can’t play the game. It only pops-up the game launcher and whenever I try clicking the play button it says I didn’t insert this CD… I don’t have a CD of it. I downloaded this game for free because I don’t want to buy the CD. :(

    17. when I try to paste the items from the Crack folder I get the error message “There is not enough space in Sims3. You need an additional 15.1 MB to copy these files”. What do I do now?

      i dont know if there is a way to free up space or if that is just something i cant do anything about thanks

      1. heather,

        Please check your hard drive if there is enough space… make sure you follow the instructions properly… read comments for installation procedure…

    18. hi there. i downloaded this fine, so thank you. But, can i add other expansion/stuff packs after i downloaded this? if so, how do i do that??

      1. You can… you need to read comments (there are instructions there) for how to install on every post/expansion/stuff pack you want to download…

    19. hey not to be rude or anything but the first and last picture are not the sims 3! the first is the sims 2 and idk what the last one is the sims 3 has way better graphics den those

    21. I successfully downloaded the game but, after the game run 4 mins, it freeze, shaking, blackout. My laptop is running windows 7 with Nvidia Geforce 650M. What is my problem? :)

        1. Hi Pikapico,

          We are glad that you figure it out… Happy gaming!!!

            1. Have you downloaded the fix we have provided? Please read description on the page to know how to use it…

          2. I have read all comments in here and i also have a problem with the updates… I have instaled the base game and want to install the expansions, but without those updates it won´t let me install any. What´s the solution? If i can´t update it ´cause it´s a cr akced game then how can i play the expansions you post? Please I love this game and don´t know what to do… I´ve serched the web for update patches but they don´t work.
            Thank you.

            1. Hi Vania,

              some expansion pack requires updates and have cra-cks for that updates. You can use the cra-cks included in every expansion packs you want to play… there are many fixes you can find using google if you want to install all the expansion packs for the sims 3. You can try this link>>> for Fixes

              Hope this helps…

          3. I’m not sure if this is a stupid question or not. Do I have to download your sims 3 base game because I have the actual base game but I can’t find the crack file. I don’t know what to do.

            1. Hi Laura,
              Thanks for dropping by…
              If you already have the original base game you don’t have to download another… just add the expansion packs you want… but unfortunately some of the expansion pack might not work for you… so we advise you to backup your game before doing anything…

              Hope this helps… Happy gaming!!!

          4. hi… i can not speack english very good … sorry

            1. Hi omid welcome to our site…

              If you want to install the sims 3 expansion packs you will need to download and install the sims 3 first… you can download any of the expansion packs you want and make them work… but remember you will need to use only the updated cra/ck to crack the game. for example if you installed the sims 3 world adventures and the sims 3 supernatural all you have to do is install the world adventures and supernatural then you will only use supernatural crack. hope this helps you can start downloading in this page http://freepcgamesden.com/the-sims-3-expansion-packs-free-downloads/

              hope this helps…

          5. thank you so much… your web is best
            & last question is : if i install the last pack(the last verjion) with crack the other packs do not need crack & they update automatic??
            again i say thank you for help & your best web

            1. You are always welcome omid…
              just remember to back your working game every time you update and do new installations…

              you can update you game if you have updated cra/cks for example another expansion pack is out and it has cra’ck with it thats the time you can update…

              Hope this helps… please like our facebookpage for more updates from this site… happy gaming!!!

          6. bro when i open the launcher from TS3 it says “cannot open device video doesnt support check out your system hardware” help me please?

          7. Hi there, I tried to copy and paste the crack into the Game/Bin folder, but it is telling me that there is not enough hypothetical /space/ on the CD (even though its not a real CD and my computer has plenty enough room) is there some way to increase the amount of space on the mounted image and paste it? Thanks

            1. Hi Steph, welcome!
              You will need to copy and paste the crack to the installation folder here’s the path = C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin . please make sure you only copy the files not the whole image (iso) or folder.

              Note: please read comments there are lots of info on how to install the game…

              hope this helps…

              1. OH ok was trying to move it INTO the mounted “CD” instead of the folder in the Program Files, i’ve figured it out now and it works great :D

              2. I have been exploring for a bit for any high quality articles or
                blog posts in this sort of house . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon this web site.

                Studying this info So i am glad to convey that I have an incredibly
                just right uncanny feeling I came upon just what I needed.

                I most undoubtedly will make sure to do not disregard this website and give it a look on
                a relentless basis.

              3. What’s up, after reading this amazing article i am as
                well cheerful to share my familarity here with colleagues.

                1. @Kelfshif, Hi and welcome! You will find the crack folder inside the rld-zeno2.iso it contains (TS3.exe and TSLHost.dll ) and copy it to your game installation folder.

                  Hope this helps….

              4. Hey admin, So I don’t know what the heck happened, but whenever open the TS3 launcher everything is okay, I have the TS3 iso mounted, I click play, and the sims opens up the loading screen and a blue loading icon on my mouse appears ( which you must know, when something is loading on windows pc that little icon shows up). I thought it wouldn’t take too long to load, but it’s taking forever to load up! I am getting really discouraged, I REALLY don’t want to uninstall the sims 3. Should I just wait a while to let it load? If I try to press the HOME button on my keyboard, it won’t let me get out of this sims 3 loading screen so I have to end up shutting my computer down. Sorry if this isn’t making much sense, I tried to explain this a best as I could.
                Thanks for your support and help in advance.

                1. @TheSims3Lover,
                  Have you read installation guide provided in the comments?
                  Have you copied the crack/ to the installation dir?
                  have you installed any expansions with this game?

                  The best thing you can do is use the crackfix we have provide above…

                1. @ydoc124,
                  Have you installed the game successfully? please find and follow installation guide provided on the comments… you can also read comments for more info…

              5. I keep getting an installation error message that tells me “this update requires a previous version to be installed” and I’m noottt entirely sure what that means.

                1. Hi rsoto,
                  We need your for some questions:
                  Have or are you installed the sims 3..?
                  Are you installing an expansion or stuff pack. If so, please comment in the pages of expansion or stuff you have downloaded…

                  Here are some helpful links:

                  Hope this helps… will wait for your answer…

              6. need a little help, if i need to download mods for sims 3, is it necessary to have expansion packs? or just sims 3? and thank you

                1. Hi breaking,
                  We haven’t tested any mods but it depends on the mods requirements… if the mods need an expansion you will need to download that expansion to make that mods work…

                  Hope this helps….

                1. Hi breaking, You are always welcome…
                  What do you mean mods? we have no mods here so we cant support it as we haven’t tested any (sorry) … If you are referring to expansion packs please read comments on every expansion pack page as we have included a lot of info on how to make it work…

              7. Hi All, I am really sorry for asking this again (I read all the comments above but still can’t find a solution)

                I have tried many many times to copy TS3.exe from Crack to Games Bin but everytime they told me that there’s no more available space in Sims3 to copy that file.

                Even though I had mount the files, the reply is still the same.
                I have plenty of space left in my computer, and i don’t understand why I can’t copy a file with just 15.1MB .
                Please help.. Thanks

                1. Hi xxx,
                  Please make sure you copy it in this path C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin and not on the iso’s

              8. ive read all the comments and everything and im still confused I have downloaded the game I think it says seeding and I clicked on the game and im completely confused what am meant to do to get the game going I don’t no what am suppsed to click or anything please can u explain what am supposed to do thank you

                1. Hi Lucy, Welcome!
                  If the game is seeding that means it is already done downloading now it is time to install the game…. You will need to go to the folder of the downloaded game and follow this steps:

                  Install Notes:

                  1. Mount or Burn image (use deamontools or PowerISO)
                  2. Install and use one of serials or keygen from razor1911 dir (find it inside the iso file)

                  Final Version Install Notes:
                  1.Run and Install Final Version Patch
                  2.Copy TS3.exe and TSLHost.dll from crack dir to installation folder GameBin folder (overwrite – replace)
                  3.Start playing!

                  Note: recommended to start this game from ts3.exe (from bin folder – create a shortcut to desktop) not from launcher and also if you still encounter problems try to block ts3.exe from your firewall

                  Hope this helps… for more info please read comments from the first page… happy gaming!

                1. Hi DESIRAE,
                  Have you installed the game already? you can read comments for installation… or you can go directly to The sims 3 fix page for detailed info… hope this helps…

                1. Hi Mary,
                  You will find it in the C:\Program Files not on your CD if you already installed it…

                  You do not need to download this if you already have purchase the game…

              9. I installed it according to all the directions (copy the Crack files, run the Final Version), and it STILL says it can’t verify my disk. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling three times now, with no success. (I also read all the comments here.)

                1. Hi Phoenix,
                  What to you mean run the final version? Are you just installing this game or installing an expansion pack? have you tried the sims 3 fix?

                  If you are just installing this base game and read all the comments for installation you already make this work without problem… for our experience many users here have problems mostly when installing the expansion pack but right now we have provided a Fix for that…

              10. I mounted the ISO, installed Sims, copied the files in Crack to Game/Bin, ran the final version patch that was included. Where is the fix?

                1. Hi Phoenix,
                  It is alright just wanted to know so that it will not be confusing… hope that it will work for you… just let us know if you still need some help… :D happy gaming!

              11. i have installed the game and update the patch, and i already copy the crack too, i try to play from ts3.exe like you said, but the game didn’t work, the game didn’t want to open. help please

              12. Nicholas Gerstbauer

                My keygen.exe says “the application was unable to start correctly. Click OK to close the application.” I cannot install the game without the key. Please help.

                1. Hello Nicholas Gerstbauer and welcome,
                  Please try to use the keygen with your antivirus turned off or excluded coz almost all antivirus prevents those type of programs…

                  But anyway you can try this code: IEHZ-HFXR-B5H4-37V2-1911 and hope that this still works for you…

              13. Is there a video or something for this? Please, I’m EXTREMELY confused here! I have no idea what a “crack” is, (I usually get my brother to download stuff) Please explain step by step how to download the base game and expansions for a dummie? I hope you can help me in this confusing matter,
                Ciara :)

              14. Hi Admin :D I don’t have any problems on downloading and installing the sims 4, but I don’t know why I’m having a problem with this. It totally worked for me before, but I am using a diff computer now. My old computer is a windows 7, I’m now using a windows 8. Does Sims 3 work on 8? Thanks :D

                1. Hi bea,
                  We have tested the sims 3 on windows 7 so we are not sure if it works on windows 8 so sorry… Have you tried compatibility mode or search google for it?

              15. Hi Admin! I tried installing it and it works half way but when its already looking for a disk it won’t locate it. when I download it from the site it’s there but 0kb. when I mount/ extract it won’t show up.

                1. hi bea,
                  what do you mean? are you using virtual drive like deamontools to install the game?
                  please make sure you are done downloading before installing…

              16. Hi Admin! yes I’m done downloading and i’m using WinISO I even tried extracting that file by itself but it won’t. the file name is Electronic_Arts_Technical_Support.glo it’s Okb. it is located in Support/EAHelp/en-us. all the files are there when I mount it but when I extract all the files it won’t show up. Just that one file. Thanks for the immediate reply.

              17. everything in the game is running but after a while like 30 mins the game crashes and also when I try to open the game the launcher keeps crashing

                  1. the launcher crashes everytime I try to load the game and before that happened while I was able to play, the game crashes in a half hour or an hour. help?

                  2. Hi admin .

                    1.I already download the base game , the expansion pack and the stuffs sims 3.
                    2.I already installed the base game (without putting the crack but still can play somehow).
                    3.Ok this my problem , when i want to install the expansion pack , its says i need to update the sims 3. But when i update it , its stuck .
                    4.So where can i get the 1.67 version The sims 3 .Next , can i install the expansion pack without updating The Sims 3.

                      1. My computer won’t run the keygen and I have already tried pausing my anti virus but it won’t let me change to key gen to a working application; it only read as a read-only file right now

                      2. i just downloaded and installed the sims 3 through your site, And i have windows 10, i followed your instruction, it works amazing. Just wanted to let you know that it works for newer pcs

                      3. i counldnt find the post but i wanted to let everyone know that the sims 3 expansion packs DOES work with windows 10, i downloaded all of them, and the also work with the store bought disk base game.

                      4. Hi and thanks for the game, but there’s this error that says “Please insert disc 1 that contains the file caches\sunset valley.objectCache.”

                        I tried to clicked on the ‘cache’ folder but it still doesn’t work.

                      5. Help it says” please insert disc 1 that contains the file Caches\SunsetValley.objectCache.”
                        when I tried to install it

                      6. Hi,

                        I have a small problem. I installed the base game, supernatural, outdoor stuff and roaring heights. Updated the crack using supernatural. I then loaded the game, was able to create a fairy, was playing for almost 2 hours, saved my gamed and quit. Now, I wanted to play and everything I installed except for the base game is gone. It’s like I never installed the expansion pack and stuff packs. Any idea as to how that might have happened? I don’t know what I did wrong here lol

                        1. Repeat the process and make sure that your anti virus didn’t remove any files… Please make sure you have not connected your game online…

                      7. I’ve followed the instructions for The Sims 3 Fix exactly, but I’m stuck on #11. My launcher gave an error and will not update to version 1.69, and the instruction file says if this happens to apply the manual patch via the link, but the link doesn’t work. I’ve even gone to Games4theworld’s site for solutions but with no luck. Is there a mirror link for the manual patch that you can provide? Thanks!
