Nothing is working and I noticed the admin is answering everyone else questions and I'm just wondering when he's gonna get to this one.

Check your "Wndows Control Panel --> Programs and Features" and delete ALL programs which could interfere with your firewall and/or internet connection.

I had no antivirus application on my laptop at all but still got the "Origin is currently not running" error so i was suspicious that i could have another application on my PC, so i uninstalled every apllication i didn´t use anymore or were unimportant or freeware application which had names like "... Network .." and so on (Do not uninstall important applications though, you could screw your pc, so better ask your brother / sister / father or whoever who are familier with the PC)

After that you should restart your pc and the game (it doesn´t matter if you use the .exe or a shortcut) should start right away with ALL the DLC´s and whats most important : without Origin running in the background. Smile

Good luck folks, i hope all of you will be able to play this game soon. I was fighting since 8 days with it and it finally works for me.

Oh, so you can answer? Don't get an attitude since I didn't have one with you. It was an observation.

Well, you may have "observed" too, that we are all volunteers here, and - as far as individual support is concerned - I may chose what to do, or what not. Usually, I will try and get back to all posts, but right now, it takes longer (due to the load).

And you may have also "observed" that you can also use the search function, if you need support very quickly.


As I said, if you have a problem, please say so directly. You are invited to share your concerns with us all. In case not: you may look elsewhere for your support. It's that easy.

I'm sure you noticed that I have placed input from other forums to help myself and the person who I was bouncing ideas off of which I obtain from a search. If you can't help me, that's fine, but like I stated before, your attitude or whatever tone you used in your response that you are still using is unnecessary, especially when I didn't have the intentions of offending.
You have a good day though.

If you don't have any intentions of offending, then don't imply that I respond to messages "selectively", as you did above:

But I'm not going to discuss with you - take the situation as it is, please. If you find that I am responding too slowly - fine, OK. But then you will need to get your support elsewhere.

Okay, may i see your Sims 4 folder ? Make a screenshot and upload it somewhere. I think you could have copied the files to a wrong path maybe.

I didn't imply that you were being selective. Just slow (as I didn't understand the amount of workload on yall) but I have someone else trying to help so if you can just continue on.

Ok Akeem

You installed your basegame into your documents folder ? That´s weird - i dont know if this could cause problems but i think it should be better if you would have installed it in a different partition or into a seperate Games folder in the first place, instead of in the documents folder.

I don't think that's it. I always done that and its always worked for me. TS4 still works from there, just not the GTW, but I'm willing to move it. Where do you think I should?

your game is installed in 2 different places, first is in your programs and second in your documents....i made the mistake of putting files in like you do in sims 3 when you dont do it like this for sims 4, it is a simple mistake to make and just adding the files to the right place made my stuff work right away so you shouldnt have to move the location of your game or anything like that (sounds confusing but trust me your game should be fine where it is) hope this helps


---------------------------------------------EDIT

ok i looked, make sure you put your files into you Sims 4 folder through your PROGRAMS folder NOT DOCUMENTS 
i did this and i wondered for like a week why my updates weren't working lol hope this helps Smile

Shalese08. Ok, I'll change it. Whenever I install it that's just where it pops up. I'll let you know if it works.


It finally works! I don't understand why it was placed there and let me play the Sims 4 from there, but not GTW, but honestly I'm too tired to question it. Major thanks to everyone that helped out. It was much appreciated! Carlos is tha man!!! Carlos is tha man!!!

Well, good to hear you got it working, although the included instructions in the download are very clear on this (actually): of course you don't copy the files into My Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4. This folder in Documents is only for savefiles, mods & CC, not for the actual installation and update of the game itself. 

The install instructions are there for a reason: they are meant to be read. And you are not supposed to interpret a meaning into those instructions, which is simply "not there". I know from experience that many people simply skip these things thinking "yeah I got this !11!!", and this case is a pretty good example of what happens if you actually "don't get it".
