Question about Electronic Arts The Sims 3: Showtime Expansion Pack PC Games

1 Answer

When I try to save and quit, Sims 3 Showtime, I receive an error message. The game won't save my progress. Then I get a message from windows saying the Sims 3 is not responding and it shuts the game

I have apprx. six EA Sims games. I'm sure this is something easy I just don't know how to fix it.

Ok, not really sure if this will help.
Right mouse click the Sims 3 icon and choose properties at the bottom. Then choose the Compatibility tab and at the bottom, check the button: Run this program as Administrator.

Hope this is helpful.

SOURCE: How do you delete a game on my sims pc game?

you can even keep playing the sims 2 whilst you have the sims 3 installed, (as to whether or not you can import your old sims is another story). There is no question, and I am willing to bet my left foot that they will both coexist on your computer. The only issue may be with HD space, but thats probably a non-issue if you have a slightly new computer.

I don't know if you can answer this but, on sims 3, I've tried to save many times and the same thing keeps popping up: An unexpected error has occured: Error 12. Please consult the readme for details.


A quick walk around for this is to while in game alt + tab and head to \Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Saves and cut and place them into a backup folder in your my documents. once they are all gone from the sims saves folder head back into the game and hit save

Why cant i save my sims complete collection i have windows vista and it says an error has occured i dont get it wat should i do


I had this problem too. In vista you have to choose to run the sims in xp or an earlier mode. I ran mine in windows ME mode. you also have to slelect "run this program as administrator". then you should be able to save your game.

The sims complete collection won't save with vista


One of the biggest problems is that you are running it on Vista. The Sims Complete Collection was not developed with Vista in mind so there will be compatibility issues. One thing that you can try to fix this is right click it and click run as administrator. The reason why i say to do this is because one of the big things that vista tried to stop was viruses destroying your operating system by editing files without permission. By running as administrator, you override these rules. Programs cannot start themselves as administrator. This should clear any problems right up.
