Sims 4 is already running

Post by Nailah118 on Fri 08 May 2015, 14:26

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I downloaded and installed the Sims 4 and it worked perfectly, I played for a few hours and closed the game.
Today it wont open anymore, the screen goes black, flickers a bit and then goes back to desktop with the following message:



In the task bar there is no other Sims related process running. I applied the ultimate fix but nothing changed.
Can anyone help me?

Thank you!

It may sound stupid but when you click ctrl + alt + del and click on "Processes" are any Sims4 related programs running.
If so, have you tried restarting your PC?

Do what the above guy said, but instead of restarting just right click the sims 4 that is running and click end process.

Hello and welcome,


Just a thought: have you considered trying to un-install the game, and then re-booting the computer ? Does it even let you un-install the game ?

If it does, re-install it. Good luck and do keep us posted ! Smile
