Sims 4 Installation Issues [SOLVED]

Post by LeBrynn on Tue 22 Sep 2015, 23:24

The past few days I've been trying to install the sims 4 and all the packs that go along with it but it isn't working properly. It worked one time then crashed and wouldn't work after that so I uninstalled it, tried reinstalling and it wouldn't work after that. I've followed step by step with The Sim Architects tutorial on youtube but it just isn't working. The only antivirus I have on my laptop currently is windows defender and that's easy to exclude the required files. Just moments ago I tried running the game after installing it and it made origin open so I put it in offline mode and hit the icon again to get the game to run but got the missing data error telling me to try reinstalling. If anyone else has this issue and has resolved it please let me know!

I do own a legit copy of the base, get to work, luxary party and outdoor retreat but I uninstalled all of it because it seemed to be causing error my first time around installing the cracked version. I'm going on sims detox right now and it's not a pretty sight. Shocked

UPDATE! If anyone else is having issues like I spoke of above then disable windows defender! Before I did that I downloaded and installed avast first, though. I think my problem was very much related to windows defender despite going in and excluding the files. Avast works really nicely for me though! After the base game was installed a thing popped up from avast saying that ts4.exe may be malicious (or virus) and gave the option to quarentine or exclude. I excluded of course. But I'm wondering if windows defender quarentined it despite excluding the files.

Anyways, I'm going to test it now with my CC and mods. Hopefully that'll work out good too.

Oh! And I uninstalled origin before installing the cracked game.

If anything else happens I will update on here to let anyone else interested know what's occurring.

The first time I loaded the game all the packs were there but the second time they weren't. I'm transfering the files once again and going to reload the game and see what happens.

Replacing the files did not work.. Soo now all that is showing up is the base game.
