The Sims 4 will not run [SOLVED]

Post by Hylia on Tue 25 Aug 2015, 03:22

Hello,
Recently, when I have tried to open The Sims 4, it opens Origin instead. I have no idea why this is and it just started doing this today. Should I uninstall Origin? The only reason I used it in the past was to access the gallery but since that's not possible anymore I guess I could try it. What should I do? Has this happened to anyone else? Help would be very much appreciated! I love you (Also, sorry if I posted this in the wrong section! I wasn't sure where to put it since it doesn't have anything to do with download issues but it also technically isn't an in game issue either.)

Hello,


This most likely means that the crack somehow got damaged. Did you double-check your anti-virus exclusions ? Is Windows Defender/Microsoft Security Essentials still turned OFF ? See my other post here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21068-sims-4-temp-fix-origin-problems-on-install#142594


And THEN, as mentioned in the other post, please re-copy and re-paste the whole Sims 4 update, whether you got it from RELOADED or G4TW. Re-start the game then. Good luck !

@Carlos I had it in my anti-virus exclusions but I didn't have Windows Defender turned off. Looks like it's back to re-adding everything that got removed. Thank you for your quick reply!

@Carlos so I downloaded all of the files and replaced them but now when I click on the game it gives me this:

Did I do something incorrectly?

EDIT: I opened it again and it started working.. I don't know what I did but it's working!

As for the error, that usually means you either didn't take out the The Sims 4 folder from Electronic Arts, or you are starting the wrong copy of the game. Still, it's very good that you were able to get it working!

Problem solved, topic closed. Don't doubt to come back if you ever need anything else. Have fun! Very Happy
