I've tried everything I can think of, but nothing works. I've tried running as Admin. Buy nothing.

Hello Eunhae606 and welcome to the forum,


The only thing I can think of for now is to apply something similar as what I described in this topic here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t17678-permissions-error-when-copying-cracked-files-fix



You should try modifying the folder permissions, as described there. Start with the folder "The Sims 4", in the location mentioned in your error message. Then go on with "Start Menu", and then with "Windows" -> "Microsoft" -> "Program Data".


Also, try downloading and installing the following files in the link:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784

Download and install all 3 files, so the...

vcredist_arm.exe
vcredist_x64.exe
vcredist_x86.exe


After you did that, re-try installing the game. Good luck !

I tried everything you said to, but nothing works. 

For one, I could download all 3 programs, just the x64. 
Then I tried the permissions but nothing. 
It just keep stopping when it tries to create folders. 

I run windows 8

Are you using an Administrator account on Windows 8 ? See this here, for more details:

(And yes, "small" things like that are the reason why I personally hate Windows 8, and wouldn't recommend it to anybody).

Hello there! Smile

Please, open a new topic for your issue. Even if it seems that the problem is the same, each user could need a very different solution. Because of this, it's better that each user has a different topic. We'll be glad to try and help you after you've created the new topic. Thanks!
