Can't run Sims 4 w/o Origin, tried everything

Post by ThemJohns on Wed 15 Apr 2015, 01:02

One of my computer just flat out refuses to run TS4 without Origin. I've tried as many different things as possible to make it work, but nothing. I tried uninstalling the game and Origin, reinstalling the game, cleaning registries, adding the game to anti-virus exceptions, and none of them fixed the problem.

I should give some specifics to diagnose the problem better. I was using the 3DM version before the expansion came out, and since I can't have Origin running to get it to work, I installed the G4W version of Get To Work. Then I uninstalled the entire thing, downloading G4W's files for the base game, but that doesn't fix the problem either. Then I uninstalled Origin and removed all its registry and ccache files, but that didn't do anything either. I tried to run it with and without Ultimate Fix, and it still gave me the same problem.

I tried installing the game on an different computer, and it works without Origin running with zero problems. I should note that trying to run with just the base game gave me an initialization error instead. Installing the expansion gives me the "Origin not running" error. As far as I'm aware of, the only anti-virus I have is Avast, and I've added the game to the exceptions and I've tried running the game with Avast disabled. I've also added to exclusions for the firewall (Windows Firewall) and tried running the game without it.

I don't know what's causing this problem then. Is it because I used a 3DM version of the game before? Or is it because I updated Origin after installing the expansion? I've looked through the forums and other people's solutions haven't helped Please help me fix this problem.

I think we're having the same issue, as well as other people. Did you find a fix?

I'm having the exact same problem too. but before the error occured, I installed warframe from steam. I don't know if that's what causing the problem, maybe I'll just try to uninstall warframe and see what happens.

Make sure your .dll files are still there. Mine were removed as a hack by origin even though I exempted the sims 4 files.

Hello and welcome to the forum,


Your aim will now be to search your entire computer for "hidden" firewalls or other "security"-software. Most likely something is blocking the crack of the game. Also, the fact that you udpated Origin will only be relevant if you actually have a legit copy of TS4 registered to the account. Is that the case with you ?


At this point I can't really say more than this here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t18501-unable-to-start-initialization-error-at-startup-updated-on-6-3-2015


I know the guide is difficult to understand, but you must try it. After you (re-)did all of that, please re-download the crack files here:
bit.ly 1CAeWYL

Look inside for the TS4.exe, RldOrigin.dll and RldOrigin.ini files. COPY them to your base game install location, usually in C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Choose "copy and replace" for all files, when prompted.


Good luck !
