Windows 7: Server Execution Failed when trying to launch a game

Server Execution Failed when trying to launch a game

Hello All,
I have been through and read the post on people having server execution failed messages, but they all seem to be for Windows Media Player etc. I have yet to find a post for someone having a hard time launching a game.

The game is The Sims 3 and I HAVE played it on my laptop before. In fact I was playing it less than a week ago and it launched just fine. I have made no changes to the game's settings, nor have I installed any new programs on my laptop. I am horribly confused as to why I am getting this error message when I have done nothing (to my knowledge) to change anything that would effect my game launching.

The only change that has been made since the last time I successfully played the game is a Mozilla Firefox update. I highly doubt that this would change a setting somewhere and make my game non-playable. If anyone has any idea of how to help, please let me know. In the meantime I am going to uninstall the game and reinstall it.

How did the re-installation go? Did it resolve the problem?

If not, try to Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup to see if you have a service of startup program that is causing conflicts with the game.
