Hello and welcome to the forum @mendesno !

Have you made sure to close Origin completely before starting the game ? Are you sure you followed the included instructions inside the pirated expansions (if you downloaded from Games4theworld) ?

If not, what exactly is not working for you ?

Yes, I have followed all the directions. At the screen with the play thing it doesn't show those notifications at the bottom.

Do you mean the notifications about the DLC...? Have you also played the game already, and looked if the DLC are there ?

Have you made sure to configure your exclusions for Windows Defender and your anti-virus properly ? Also try this: move the installation folder of The Sims 4, from C:\Program files (x86)\Origin Games, directly onto the desktop. Then start the game from there. See if the DLC shows up.

With the TS4.exe file. It is located under C:\Program files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Game\Bin. You can use that file directly, or make a shortcut to the desktop from it.

...no, don't open Origin. The error most likely means you did not configure your anti-virus exclusions (properly). Please read again through these posts here:

http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t19191-unable-to-start-origin-is-currently-not-running-alternative-solutions


After you did that, please re-apply the "Get together" update to your Sims 4 installation folder. Just copy & paste again, and choose "replace files in the destination". Then try the game again.

Again, you need to learn how to configure both Windows Defender and any other anti-virus programs you have. Take your time, and good luck !

You don't need the Ultimate fix this time though. If you keep the installation order as follows you should be fine:

1) TS4 Base game
2) Get to Work
3) Get together
4) "Hotfix" (see this here)

But your problem is most likely related to anti-virus issues. You will need to figure that out on your own - we can only give you general guidelines, but the actual "tuning" is up to you.

You could try un-installing the games and re-booting the computer. After which you re-install the games, according to the order I mentioned in my previous reply. But other than that, there isn't much I can do to help you, sorry.
