Unable to start: Origin is currently not running.

Post by Chelledoll on Sun 26 Apr 2015, 15:21

Hello there,

So I have downloaded the Sims4basegame and Sims4GTW from G4TW and it seems that I can't get it to work. The error for "Origin isn't running keeps popping up"

I have done verything in my power to hopefully fix this.
This includes;

Added all correct folders (Sim folders+RldOrigin.dll and my download folder) to the exception list on my anti-virus; I've also made sure to put the sims on the exception list on my firewall.

I used CCleaner to clean up the registry for the sims so I should get a clean install; I also checked the uninstaller of CCleaner to make sure Sims4 was completely gone.

I don't have/had any other anti-virus programs installed except for Avira.

After all this (used Carlos guide carefully step for step) I still get the origin error.

Even tho the thread on the Ultimate fix says;

Admin wrote:=> NOTE: if you installed The Sims 4: Get to Work, you DO NOT NEED THIS ULTIMATE FIX, as installing the Get to Work expansion pack will automatically update your game to the (currently) latest game version! <=

I tried adding those aswell after I ran TS4.exe and failed running it due to the origin error. Even after the fix I get the origin error.

Currently I am just at a loss since I've done everything that needed to be done.

I have tried this several times now; over and over again but I still fail in running the game.

Edit: I plugged out my internet and the game seems to be able to run WhatDidUJustCallMe?
