Origin is currently not running

Post by Elyle on Wed 24 Feb 2016, 16:37

Hello,
First, I would like to thank you for sharing the games and their updates, I think you’re doing a really great job !
But unfortunately, as you probably guessed, the games aren’t working on my computer.
I will try to be as clear as possible.
My laptop is running under Windows 8, and until yesterday, my anti-virus was Avast, which I replaced with Avira. Someone told me that Avast could be the source of my problems so I tried to get rid of it, with no success.

So, I’ve already downloaded several versions of the game, but none of them worked.
At first, I got the initialization error, but now it is : Origin is currently not running. I’ve also already read your topics about these two errors, and added my Download file, and the Sims 4 file in the exclusions, my Windows Defender is off, as my firewall.

I had Origin and after these errors, I uninstalled it. I think I properly uninstalled it, I deleted the Origin things in my registry, and in my programmData.

Maybe the problem comes from an old Sims or Origin file that I missed, I dont know...
Also, I move The Sims files from Electronics Arts to programme files then to D:.

So, I launched CCleaner and went into the registry and here is what I see :





Sorry I’m French...
It might be translated as :
Invalid installation Reference (i’m not sure about it).
Obsolete software key : Maxis
Missing MUI Reference :


And of course, with the other Sims versions I tried, I cleaned the registry on CCleaner without really paying attention.


Do you have any idea ? I really dont know what to do, and I don’t know what to do with these errors on CCleaner.

Thank you !

Hello and welcome to the forum @Elyle,


In principle, you must learn how to configure an anti-virus program properly. Whether that is avast, avira, or anything else, it doesn't matter. Personally, I believe you should have sticked to avast, but OK. Smile

One thing: you also moved the installation folder of The Sims 4, out from Electronic Arts, and directly under Program files (x86) ?

And yes, feel free to delete these registry keys, but I can't really tell if it's going to help you here...

Hello Carlos, thank you for your reply ! Smile

And yes, I followed your guide about how to configure Avast but even after that the game didnt work...
When I only install the base game, I get the initialization error, and then when I install all the other addons I get the Origin error. I really dont know what to do, why would this work for some people and not for other ones ? I must have missed something but I don’t know what..
Also yes : I moved the Sims 4 file under C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4 WhatDidUJustCallMe?

Because EA have done a good job in making this game as hard to crack as possible, and the resulting/circulating crack-files are very susceptible to anti-virus/firewall interferences. For better or worse.

If you like, you could look at this here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t19939-anti-virus-uninstall-tools

And download those "removal" tools for anti-virus programs. Delete avira (properly), and also run a cleaner for avast. Then re-boot the computer. Check again if Windows Defender has been disabled, and try running the game again.

You could also try moving your installation folder of The Sims 4 directly onto the desktop, and try running the game from there, though I have to admit that this is more of an educated guess, rather than a specific solution.

In the past I used to say to people, that if they REALLY wanted to play a pirated Sims 4 (and honestly, that game isn't that good anyway), then they should consider a fresh Windows re-install, as radical as it may sound. But I'll leave that up to you. Some people actually (!) went that far, and then they messaged me saying that they could indeed run The Sims 4 now. But again, that decision is up to you.

I'm sorry I couldn't help further here, but hey: we also have a number of other games that you may find interest in. Very Happy  Such as The Sims 3, The Sims 2, MySims, The Sims Stories, etc. and we might add more (diverse) games in the future too. Time is too precious to annoy oneself with a (bad) game such as The Sims 4.

Too bad it didn't work out. But yes, part of why The Sims 4 is unpopular is also because of these "stability issues" relating to the pirated versions. It certainly turns off a lot of people. 

WhatDidUJustCallMe?

Anyhow, I'll leave the topic open here in case you want to update it, in the future. Have fun nonetheless !

For all users with the Origin Problem, I have figured out a solution.

Just a bit ago I was like you guys, looking around the web trying to find answers and the answers you might've found didn't work for you. Well I came up with a simple solution. Down below is the step by step process I took.

Step 1:

- In your The Sims 4 Folder, check for another folder called _Redist. Open it, and then open the application named QuickSFV. This shall run through all of the folders and check for which files are "bad". If more than 1 file is bad, use this to guide you to find the other right files for the wrong ones you might have.

Step 2:


- Once you've went through QuickSFV, you most likely will only have 1 bad file; rldorigin.dll. This file is the file that makes origin work with TS4, and allows the whole game to be crack-able. The only real solution is to 1) Find a friend who cracked the game and it works for him, and get the file from him or 2) Look for it on the internet. Number 2 most likely won't work since when I figured this out I spent hours trying to find a good rldorigin.dll file and couldn't find one. I recommend asking anyone here that has the game (cracked) and it works.


Step 3:


- Once you receive the file, copy it into the Bin folder which is under the Game folder. Replace the old file, since it is a bad copy, and retry the QuickSFV that we did in the first step. This will recheck all of the files, including the new one you just put in. If they are all "OK" then you should be good to go and the game should be working perfectly!
