Sims2 Launcher has stopped workingEdit

I am at my wits end. This popped up months ago and I was panicky and upset.  I have worked on a family now for 4 years.  I am on the fifth generation. I have OFB, University installed where my sims have their own businesses and children are in college. I thought the CDs were defective because when I put in the OFB cd it asked me to put in sims 2 deluxe and I did, but when I did this, it told me to insert a CD and the CD was already in there. So I bought these games over again (twice).  When I put them In it asks to reinstall the games.  I don't want to lose my hard work. When I hit the shortcut, I get the error message, "The sims 2 launcher has quit working"  I am so disgusted.  I bought the sims 3.  I ABSOLUTELY HATE THIS GAME!!! I won't to play my game and the characters I have created since 2008.  I have had to redo this family now three times because of hard drive crashes and new PC's.  Sims 2 doesn't work with windows 8 so I keep my windows 7 maintained in order to play sims 2 and NOW, I get this crummy dumb message!!  I need HELP!!!!—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Windows states there is a problem and I will be notified if a solution is found.Edit

There is no solution.  I have tried to call tech on the phone like I used to before they discontinued the sims 2 community.  It rings and no one ever picks up.  Before, I had no problem getting a tech and allowing them to access my PC to fix the problem. I have paid TOO much money for these games.  I have 3 of eachm not to mention the other expansion packs that I bought and NOW can not use because everything depends on the sims 2 disc in order to work.  I am really disappointed and thoroughly upset.  Can anyone please help me?  I feel like I have thrown hundreds of dollars out of the window.  I even thought it may be my PC, even though it was new when this happened.  I took it to the store and they said the CD rom was working perfectly and it seems like it's a problem with the software.  I've exhausted all I know what to do.   Is there anyone who knows how to fix this problem?  If so, PLEASE HELP!!! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 14:12, December 28, 2013 (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~

Solution Edit

It's not you - EAxis has broken the launcher twice this year. To solve, try bypassing the launcher first. K6ka (talk | contrib) | NG Userpage | The Last Stand Wiki | The Sims Wiki | YouTube | Wikipedia 14:40, December 28, 2013 (UTC)

Yes. You really shouldn't play from the launcher. Nikel Talk Vote! 16:10, December 28, 2013 (UTC)
Just turn off wifi then click on the launcher and then while the games loading up you can turn your wifi back on.—Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 01:32, September 14, 2014‎ (UTC) - Please sign your comments with ~~~~
