Sims 4 wont up

Post by michellemcbxx on Sat 25 Oct 2014, 21:42

I am having trouble opening Sims 4 as a message pops up saying 
"The dynamic libary "rld.dll" failed to initialize (EO)."
My antivirus had removed Sims 4 when I installed it so I had to repair Sims 4 in the setup and alter my antivirus so It wouldn't pick it up as a virus.
Any suggesstions?

Hi again! Smile

If you are still getting the "rld.dll" error, it should be able to be fixed without the need of a reinstall (which I doubt would help at all). 

If you already made sure that both vcredit_x86 and vcredit_x64 are installed, if possible, then what's most likely happening is that your antivirus is deleting an important file from the game installation folder. This is why it's so crucial to add the folders to the exceptions list. The thing is: the file is already deleted. Here is where the Ultimate Fix comes, as copying the folders inside to the location of the game installation will restore any files previously deleted. BUT if your antivirus also deleted the file inside the Ultimate Fix before you copy it, this process will be useless. 

So: temporarily disable your antivirus, re-download the Ultimate Fix and then copy the folders again to the location specified. See if your game works, and only after that enable your antivirus again. If the folders were added to the exceptions list, there shouldn't be any more problems after this. But if you get it again, they weren't properly added to the exceptions and the file was deleted again. You would need to repeat this after adding the folders to the exceptions correctly. Wink

Good luck, and please keep us updated! Very Happy

Don't worry, you are not a pest!

Could you tell us exactly what steps you followed? Just so we know better what's going on. Smile
