Making Homecrafter Work


Homecrafter is the custom wall and floor application from EA.  Sometime in the latter half of the EP's being released, they conflicted and Homecrafter would no longer start.  I personally do not have issues with Homecrafter, since I don't have the later EP's, but I hang out in a lot of different help forums.  This seems to work for 99% of the issues.

Tips to make Homecrafter run:

* 1. Right click the icon shortcut and choose run as...choose the current user or administrator.  Sometimes it's just a permissions issue.
* 2. Clean out folders in C:\Documents and Settings\Lunie\My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Projects\HomeCrafter Plus .  This will also speed up the opening time of the program since any images in those folders need to be loaded.
* 3. Replace your exe file with the attached one in C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\The Sims 2 HomeCrafter Plus\HCBin

Wish I had read this yesterday before spending an hour trying to coax homecrafter to work - I got there in the end but via the long route :blush

Thanks. My Homecrafter stopped working ever since I had to do a system restore, and has never worked on the new computer. I'm hoping the replacement .exe file will fix it.
