My only option is to uninstall/reinstall

If I do this, will i lose my sims, houses, skills, ect?

Or is there a way to replace those files with the correct ones so that i dont have to uninstall?

Please Help Me! i haven't played the sims in months because of this..


The file you're looking for is on your disk. Insert your CD, and go to My Computer.
Navigate to the Game/Bin folder on your disk, and find Shaders_Win32. Make a copy of that file and put it in the same place in Program Files.

Go to your sims folder in my documents and make a copy of the library and the saves and place them on the desktop. After you reinstall place them back.

Just copy your Electronic Arts folder from My Documents to your desktop. Reinstall then copy and paste your Electronic Arts folder into My Documents.

If you don't put your Electronic Arts folder in your My Documeants folder somewhere all your sims data WILL be deleted. And don't have hacks/mods while updating the game!

Use "width=450" "height=600" at the end of a picture to make the picture smaller so you don't break the forums!

I can't seem to follow what you have said, to copy that file 'Navigate to the Game/Bin folder on your disk, and find Shaders_Win32. Make a copy of that file and put it in the same place in Program Files.' I can't find shaders_Win32. I am having the same problem as spooke and i do not wish to lose my achievements and sims please help me.
