Any Ideas whats causing the Kernelbase.dll error?
« on: August 08, 2014, 02:23:12 PM »
I just installed the sims 4 create a sim demo, and every time I try to open it, it pops up with window's cryptic, unhelpful error messages.

Does any of that make sense to anyone? I did a little research before posting here, and a few others have this issue too. One suggested uninstalling, and then reinstalling it, which did nothing for me.
Someone also suggested that it might be due to a corrupt user profile, so I created a brand new local admin profile, and had the same issue with that profile.

I'm running windows 8.1 pro x64. My computer also more than meets the system requirements for the demo. I'd really like to get this problem fixed, because I already pre-ordered the sims 4 several months ago, and I don't want to have the same thing happen to it.

edit: just looked in the event viewer.

I'm running the same OS.
My kernelbase.dll is dated 3/19/2014 with a byte count 1087kb if that helps.

1,087 / 1024 = 1.0615234375

If your computer shows that dll file as 1.06mb in system32 it's not so hot at math either  :D

sfc/ scannow should find a new one but that doesn't seem to be your problem.

I'd call an expert from out of town???  :huh:

the error is just telling you what DLL file it occurred in.  it does not mean there is a problem with that DLL.  and simply replacing DLLs is a great way to mess up your system even worse.  only replace a DLL file if it's clear you have an out of date version and you have a trusted source for a new one, and there is no better upgrade process that will do it for you.

Don't give away my secrets, please. :D

Since he's not the sole user with the same problem my query about the byte count was solely to determine if he had installed the "Spring update" for Win8.1.???
No update, many with the same issue, many haven't installed update, a clue perhaps?
sfc replaces any bad system files it finds. If you run sfc and allow it to replace files from a corrupt source you may wind up with more than one bad dll and you may crash your system. Your advice is sage, Grasshopper!  :Thmbsup:

I've ran sfc twice now, and it says it found corrupt files, but couldn't repair some of them. The log file makes about as much sense to me as the actual error. I'll post the log file tho if it will be helpful. I am usually pretty good about keeping my computer updated, but windows 8 is very unobtrusive about informing you that you have updates available. I'm not entirely sure what the spring update is tho. I have the start button at the left of the start bar, and the metro apps now have the minimize and x button on them, as well as showing up in the start bar. Is that from the spring update?

Well slap my Teletubby dvds (bonus points if anyone knows where that line is from) I ran it under xp SP3 compatibility with run as admin checked, and it works now. Which is interesting, because one of the first things I tried was selecting windows 7 compatibility with run as admin checked, and that didn't work. The sims 4 CAS demo is brand new, why is it that it will only run on xp, and not windows 8?

Directx 10 is not supported in the game?

XP doesn't support Directx 10, so selecting that mode would revert back to Directx 9 allowing the game to run.

That would be my best guess.

That actually makes sense. I just relooked as the system requirements, and it said it needed a directx 9 compatible card.

Yeah, I'm all up to date now. I checked shortly after I got home from work. I only had one small update.

It appears that Shades has come up with your answer. Are you in the same forum, same ballgame, same ballpark or at the same latitude as the other users that reported the same, or a similar, problem?
Maybe you could verify with other uses what the problem was, or perhaps they found something additional that no one here discovered??
Just a thought!
