Origin not running

Post by Ninotchka on Thu 14 Jul 2016, 01:45

I am yet another miserable person who has tried probably every solution offered on the internet for this error, and nothing has yet worked. This error will be the end of me, I swear. Facepalm

Anyway, before trying games4theworld's version of the Sims 4 installation, I have (unsuccessfully) tried to install several other versions found of KickAss (even though they are ultimately more or less the same). Nothing has worked so far, I always get the "Origin not running" error. 
Before trying to install the game from your files, I cleaned the registry to start with a clean slate hoping there's a chance it could work. Alas, it didn't.

I've tried everything before: moved the game from EA folder to just The Sims 4, even tried renaming it as numerous other people suggested it worked for them, tried to install it with and without Origin (FitGirl had some solutions how you should download the newest version of Origin or something, but it didn't work either so nvm), cleaned all possible leftover Origin files, and I naturally always run as administrator... I can't remember what else I tried, but I know I tried all possible solutions, even from comments of some random people. 

The newest thing I found here just now was Sim Architect's idea to check RldOrigin.dll and how it should be dated August 14, 2015 and have 635,396 bytes. 
Even though I did apply the latest fix, it says my file was created 19 October 2014 and modified 10 December 2015 and the size is 615 KB. So it's not the right one? She said in this post we can download the right file from one of her instruction videos, but I couldn't find any download links for that.  Question 
I thought I could try that if someone could send me download link for the file. Please?
(Btw, I'm running a 64 bit and RldOrigin_x64.dll was last modified 10 December 2015 as well, although date created is today 14 July 2016, not 2014 like in RldOrigin.dll)

Although I doubt anything will ever work to fix that problem. Sad

Hello, and welcome to the forum,  Very Happy
did you try moving folder from C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4 to C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4. If that doesn't help try renaming folder The Sims 4 to Sims 4. Also, when you move folder you need to change path you included in antivirus exclusion list.

The thing about RldOrigin.dll that it's detected by antivirus as false positive and to avoid that is to correctly configure antivirus exclusion list for The Sims 4. RldOrigin.dll should be dated 10 December 2015 and the size of 615 KB. Because we got latest cracked update on release of Get Together on 10 December 2015. The date that Sim Arhitect is reffering is for Spa Day update that we got in April, update before Get Together. So, that is old post. Many users look at that date ans size and it shoul be edited to show correct informations.
Also, there is no download link in description, and you don't need it, because it's outdated.

Talk to my left hand
