The Sims 4 - "Unable to start:" [d6f91ffb:29f00e76:00000000]

Post by MarioMinecraftMix on Fri 06 May 2016, 04:57

I recently installed The Sims 4 on my Windows 10 laptop, and it worked perfectly. Then I started adding DLC afterwards. GET TO WORK worked fine, but adding GET TOGETHER ruined it all. I had been getting a pop-up when I try to launch it, and it won't launch anymore. I tried uninstalling the whole game (since Windows 10 sucks at undo-ing Copy/Paste files) and reinstalled ONLY the main game again. And this pop-up still appears. What happened and how do I fix it?  Help


This is the pop-up (Couldn't take a screenshot, so copied it word-per-word)

Hello again,


Make sure to apply the "Hotfix at first if you haven't done so yet. See this here.

Then have a look at this here:

It should be enough for you to navigate to Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 and then delete the GameVersion.txt-file. Then try the game again.
