Hi, I have tried to find out why but no luck. My Homecrafter Plus for the
past couple of days won't start up...it just says application has crashed,
application will now close. Can't figure out why since did nothing new and
Sims 2 works fine. Tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but no go.
Any ideas out there? Thanks for any advise.

Are you trying to run it while you have the game running?
I notice that both it and bodyshop, along with the game too, they all use a
lot of memory. Maybe try shutting down some of the background running stuff
first.

Move everything from your downloads folder to somewhere safe and try again.
It might be a clash with some user made item.

Thanks, I tried that and wound up reinstalling it. Read the reply to
Bluegenie2 above. I believe I found the offender. I appreciate all the
help, very much.

This makes me even more suspicious of that patch. I haven't heard
that it does anything important except for people in Asian
territories.
