Sims 4 Need help - entry point not found

Post by j11smith on Wed 25 Feb 2015, 17:57

Hey! I have been working on getting Sims 4 up and running for the past day but I keep running into problems. The error I am stuck on is:
Entry point not found - "the procedure entry point_except1 could not be located in the dynamic link library MSVCR120.dll"

I have uninstalled and re-installed both microsoft visual programs (64 and 86)
I have made exceptions for all files in my anti-virus program
I have tried completely removing and re-installing both Sims 4 and the ultimate fix

I'm not sure what else to try but i would appreciate any ideas or tips.

THANKS, j11smith

Hello and welcome to the forum,


Someone else came up with the following 'solution':
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t19249-cant-open-the-sims-4-help-solved#132924

Have you specifically tried that too ?

Sorry to hear about that, but can you also make an exception in your anti-virus for the download folder of your internet browser stuff ? Namely the stuff that you download with Chrome/Firefox ?

And then, re-download the Ultimate fix and re-apply it. Good luck again !
