I know how to exclude files and folders in my antivirus. I also know how to copy and paste the game folder into the sims 4 directory and copy over the files.
I also uninstalled Origin, changed the sims 4 file locations, turned off my antivirus then reapplied the crack, I renamed the the folder in my Documents, is there anything you suggest besides uninstalling the sims 4? Because I simply do not want to go through that again, and I fear if i try something else I will end up messing up my game.

Why dd you move your installation folder ?
The register will now point to a non-existing item and cannot find/start te game.
Put it back to where it was, probably C;|Program Files(x86)\Origin Games\

You might try and start the game from the folder where you have moved The Sims 4 to, Game\Bin\Ts4

Hello. Let's clean up the confusion. 

Tarac, don' t forget not all people bought the base game, they do not get it in the Origin Games folder, they get it in Electronic Arts folder. You HAVE to move the game files. Trust me, same problem happened to me, and I tried ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING,  but the problem was only fixed by moving the game files. I seen a ton of people posting that solution. The registry mess only happens with Origin version, and when fix will come, we can move game files back.

yourcrAzy, I don't see any solution now except reinstalling the game and using the tips I said.

annaliapace58, I think you downloaded the wrong version.

When your game consists of downloads only, the Reloaded version will install in C:\Program Files(x86)\The Sims 4

As an admin on a Dutch forum I installed the new update under Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 and believe me, I did not change or move the installation folder.

I also bought the base game, installed in C:\Program Files(x86)\Origin Games\de Sims 4 and the new update worked perfectly in that same directory.

I noticed that people here are talking about the download from Skidrow, I used the torrent from Reloaded, so maybe they are slightly different

for those having complicated issues with trying to use skidrow, goto K.A.T. and download The Sims 4 Fitgirl repack. Titled "The Sims 4: Deluxe Edition + All DLCs (v1.10.57.1020, True MULTI17) [FitGirl Repack]" I doubt you will have any issues. the crack installs with the game thru the installer. 

All the game repacks i ever used by her never failed me. Im not currently running her version, but i did download it after the fact and deleted the files for my current installer. didnt bother to check it cause they always work for me.

she has also posted tips in her comment section.

Also i'd Strongly recommend 

1. rename your electronic arts directory to "Electronic Arts A" or moving your electronic arts directory from my documents to your desktop. 

2. uninstall your current sims 4 game. 

3. install fitgirl's sims 4 repack (or skid row or whatever you choose.) as i said i suggest fitgirl, it has an installer which also installs the crack, and her releases of any game never failed me. so i'd be willing to climb myself on to the stake, tie myself up, pour my own gas and light my own match if this doesnt make things easier. lol 

4. when install is complete rename your "Electronic Arts A" folder in my documents back to Electronic Arts. or if you moved it to your desktop, move it back to my documents.

5. Right click on your The sims 4 shortcut, click properties, click compatability tab, Click the box for run as administrator. click apply. 

*note if you are using windows 10, you may also wanna click the windows 8 compatability box as well. Click apply.

Close properties

6. smile and tell yourself this is gonna work. Positive attitude is always good no matter the outcome.

7. start game

8. if it works, see 9. if it doesnt skip 9 and go directly to 10.

9. Come back here and tell us the result.

10.
Spoiler:
go directly to 9.

The only xplanation I can come up with is that your anti-virus has blocked acces to the file RldOrigin.dll in the Bin folder of your installationfolder.
Disable your anti-virus and place the crack again from your download

Well, I regret doing this. When I installed it a pop-up showed up saying "The program can't start because QtWebKit4.dll, QtXml4.dll, QtGui4.dll, and QtNetwork4.dll are missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." and when I reinstalled it, the same exact message popped up. This is what I get for being impatient  Why.

That exact same thing happen to me!  My virus protection took them off, but they are part of the Spa Day download.  I just re-downloaded (not just re-install) it and made sure my virus protection was temporarily turned off when I did the setup.  Everything works fine now.

It looks like you have replaced the folder Bin instead of merging
Re-install, then open the Crack folder, open Game, open Bin
Copy the 3 files into your installation folder Game -> Bin

The folder Core in the folder Bin contains your missing files

Hello all,


No reason (anymore) to keep this thread up. See the announcement here. If you still have any questions, feel free to use the search function, or if you can't seem to find a solution yourself, open a new thread in the correct subsection.
