Making Homecrafter Work
« on: February 20, 2009, 10:58:05 PM »
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.
