If you have origin running you have to shut it off. Not just go offline, but actually exit out of the Origin program. I had to do this as I purchased the base game and the Pack. 

Start the game up and it'll be there.

Hi there, @sim-l! Smile

Indeed, you need to make sure that Origin is closed so that all of the DLC appears in the game. Also check that you are copying the folders to the correct location, and let us know how it goes. Good luck!

Hi there, @killercolors! Very Happy

So, you mean you have the base game bought and added the G4TW release of Get to Work? And it works fine? Just want to make sure.

Yup. I purchased the base game and the stuff pack, but installed the release of GTW and it worked perfectly fine. I have to keep Origin off, not just offline mode, but not even running, but it works just fine. Smile

I see. Origin also needs to be closed in our release (without bought parts), as Offline Mode only will not work. Thanks for letting us know! This will certainly help us in the future. Very Happy

And if you open the game with Origin open, do you get an error? Or does the game load just without Get to Work? And are you able to access the Gallery then (from the Main Menu)?

When I run Origin and start up the game it loads without GTW and as usual I can access the gallery. But when I start the game up with origin running it gives me the Game Data Incomplete error. That not all data was loaded or it was deleted, etc' etc'. But again, without origin running it works fine.

@JasonGatesXI did you replace the files from the crack folder into the proper folder? (C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin)

Even after that you must make sure origin is not running. Not just offline or running in the background.

@JasonGatesXI unfortunately I purchased the base game and so I needed origin and now that I'm using G4TW's GTW release the files in the crack folder block origin from running when I go to play the game. From the sounds of it you don't have origin so you may try downloading it and letting it run it's course after it's update and then put the files from the crack folder into C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin (because when origin updates it will overwrite the files as I know from experience)
