Orign Currently Running - Questions Ultimate Fix/ Hotfix??

Post by mslisalisa on Wed 27 Apr 2016, 06:06

Ok I finally got the Sims4 installed but I'm getting the dreaded Orign Currently Running message.
I have Norton as my anti virus and did all of the exclusions, moved it from the Electronic Arts to the C Drive.
When I did the install I did the exact order Base Game, and so on as instructed.

I am reading the instructions and I'm confused as if you have all three you don't need the Ultimate Fix you need the "Hotfix"
I am searching the forum and can't find the hotfix :-( 

I have Windows 10 64bit btw. Windows Defender is grayed out since Norton takes over for that. So,  would you suggest
that I get rid of norton and just use windows defender security essentials? From reading the forums it seems the reason it won't work is due to anti-virus.
Plus I am confused on what fix to use.

As always thanks in advance for your help

Hello again,


Make sure that you really add the entire C:\Program files and C:\Program files (x86) locations in the Norton exclusions. If that is possible, that is (I am unfamiliar with Norton). Then you re-apply the crack-files here. Copy and paste them into your Game\Bin subfolders and replace all existing files.

And finally after that, you can get the hotfix in this thread here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21865-llama-symbols-in-newcrest-and-related-glitches-a-k-a-get-together-hotfix-please-read#147046

Thanks for your feedback. Smile  I now slightly edited the topic title of that thread, so that other people can find it more easily now. It is also an "Announcement"-topic in the TS4 Fixes section, so that should help getting this thread the attention it needs.


Good luck for now !

Sorry to hear it didn't work out. WhatDidUJustCallMe? Unfortunately I can't help with the details of Norton, since I am unfamiliar with it. I think it may be better for you to use something different. I would recommend either avast, Kaspersky or even Comodo anti-virus.

Orign Currently Running - Questions Ultimate Fix/ Hotfix?? (Update Question)

Post by mslisalisa on Mon 02 May 2016, 05:32

Ok I did the following but, still get the dreaded "orign is currently not running" message.

I uninstalled Norton and I'm just using windows defender so I turned it off and added all the necessary items to the exclusions list. (I haven't turned it on yet) 

I installed the Sims4 base game
The Get To Work expantion
Then Get Together

Moved The Sims 4 from Electronic Arts to C;/ ProgramFiles(X86)
Added the fixes in the original post....still get the message about orign... ( I even orign)

Did I miss any steps?

Can you re-download the crack-files here, and then copy + paste them into C:\Program files (x86)\The Sims 4\Game\Bin, replacing the existing files when prompted. Then try the game again.

Do you have a 64-bit Windows ? If so, then move the install folder of The Sims 4 under C:\Program files, instead of C:\Program files (x86). Then try running the game with the TS4_x64.exe. Various users have reported that this .exe file is less prone to anti-virus intereferences. Smile
