My Fellow Cawsters
I'm seeing a lot of new threads for people needing help with error messages, crashing, patching issues. If we could all troubleshoot off one thread, I can post fixes we find and share in the first post which will make it easier for people to find the information needed.
I'm hoping everyone will help and contribute. I'm only good at information dissemination, not that good with the techie stuff.

The first thing you need to do is read this, and implement the suggestions made in this thread at MTS;
Patch 1.24 - Town Life
This has worked for many who are getting the error Message "Your Currently Installed Version of the Game is not Compatible with Create a World"
The Generations dir file is located in C:/Programs/Electronic Arts/ then go to your latest expansion and the default file is there. Thanks Goligy08
Quick walkthrough of the fix with pictures, on this thread, in second post.
Patch 1.22 - Generations
Quote by Simsample in this thread;
The problem you are describing seems to be caused when you have the latest game patch and CAW but NOT Generations.
People are finding that the new CAW will not work without Generations as the program is looking for the TS3W executable, but that executable only exists if you have Generations.
Update: This is the work around for the Generations patch issue
Here is a nifty premade gadget by Zaide_chris, that you just have to drag and drop your .world file into.
