I am having the same exact issue. I've done everything as it suggests, redownloaded the fix as well, still the same thing. Hopefully we get some help on this!

You need move The Sims 4 folder from C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 and put it somewhere else such as C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4 for example. The new crack does not like being in the Electronics Arts folder for some reason

Also after moving the folder you need to add it AGAIN to your Antivrus exclusion list since moving it causes the path to be different and the antivirus is still pointed at the old path and NOT the new path. After readding The SIms 4 to your exclusion list readd the crack files to the moved folder.

I had the same problem today but what I did was move the folder from C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4  to C:\Program Files (x86) .so the game folder should be in C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4  ..Then i log out of Origin and boom the game worked...

I had this problem. I fixed it by COMPLETELY uninstalling Sims 4(registry included) and reinstalling it again while my Antivirus (Bitdefender) is off. Opened the game and it works. I hope this fixes your problems.  Carlos is tha man!!! Carlos is tha man!!! Carlos is tha man!!!

I don't know but Origin recently updated and I think that's the culprit.

Hmm... I'll try doing this since I also have bitdefender.

Will update as soon as I'm done.

EDIT: So, I tried applying the fix again before uninstalling sims 4 (since I didn't want to go through all that hassle), and I paid close attention when I was copying and pasting files and realized that one of the files wasn't being pasted the right way (there was a pop up saying that I “didn’t have permission” to paste the file). I'm using windows 10, and all files copy perfectly except that particular file. So I logged on my computer as administrator and managed to paste the file and now the game runs okay.

I am betting it was RldOrigin.dll since that is the one the antivirus is going after

The Origin error happened to me also. I even had made to sure to do a clean install, copy GTW, then copy over the latest update. I can personally confirm that moving The Sims 4 folder into Program Files (x84) somehow allowed the game to run (for me). This method worked. This could be a temporary work around until more information is gathered on what is causing the issue. I am on Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate. So, it might not be totally related to OS.

i keep my Origin closed, sims 4 will still work but it'll show as RLD! you cannot access Community (it'll ask to connect online)

sims 4 worked before they updated Origin launcher so its A Origin problem (still has a problem in Beta too)

you can still save the game make sure you backup your Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4 Folder

Yes, actually, that was the file that I had trouble copying and pasting and I think the reason why I think still got the error at the time.

I'm also having this problem. The fix worked just fine for me when I installed it on my windows 7 laptop, but nothing works on my windows 8.1 laptop. I moved the folder to program files, like I've read here. I uninstalled the game completely and the game worked until I added the latest fix.

EDIT: I FINALLY got it to work! I decided to try unzipping the fix to a folder still within my flash drive (I moved the files from the windows 7 computer with it) and then copied them to the Sims 4 folder. Before, I had copied the folder to my desktop and then unzipped from there. No idea what the difference was, but it's working now. Very Happy
