After installing Ultimate Fix sims 4 is asking for origin again.

Post by spnshdrgn on Fri 15 Jul 2016, 01:48

Hello I have reinstalled sims 4, get to work & get together on my laptop.  After each install I checked to make sure it worked. I applied the hotfix and sims 4 still ran normally.  I then installed Ultimate fix and the game will not run because origin is not running. Please help!!! Why God.

I removed Sims 4 from Electronic Arts in C:Program Files x86, I tried renaming the file, removed GameVersion.txt file, and created a new ReticulatedSplinesView file.

I don't know what else to do after the Ultimate Fix install? I is confused

Hello,
you didn't have to install Ultimate Fix.
Try again reinstalling Get to Work, Get Together and Hotfix.
You can look for more informations in this topic, and also this.
Notice that in second topic Sim Arhitect's reply isn't correct due to outdated informations.

I am re-installing it again after deleting everything, but I want to be able to get everything in the ultimate fix and have sims 4 still work.

In Get Together are included all previous Game Packs and Stuff Packs. So, there's no need to download Ultimate Fix. Installation order is: Base Game -> Get to Work -> Get Together -> Hotfix. Here's guide How to Install The Sims 4 Correctly.

Hello @spnshdrgn,

Before you re-install, make sure again to check whether you configured your anti-virus exclusions properly.
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t18501-unable-to-start-initialization-error-at-startup-updated-on-11-9-2015

And yes, even if the exclusions are correctly set, it can still happen that they interfere. Because when you move files around, like in the Ultimate fix, then that's what "triggers" the anti-virus. These things can be remedied by e.g. temporarily turning off your anti-virus when applying new updates.

One problem with that is, that in Windows 10 for example, Windows Defender will come up, one you turn off your main anti-virus. So you have to set the exclusions in Windows Defender too...it's all very tricky, but it is still necessary to do.

Do keep us posted on here !  Carlos is tha man

I started installing 1 by 1 and checking if it worked after each install, after installing the Get Together pack it started asking for origin again.  I checked all through my computer for any hint of origin installed and nothing.  I then installed Hot Fix to see if it would maybe fix it, but I still get the origin error.  I had the folder under Program Files (x86), moved it to Program Files even renamed the file to The Sims4 (no space). I don't have any anti-virus running have my windows wall turned off as well as windows defender.
Please help, I REALLY want to play my game again! Why God.

In my experience installing:
1. Basic Game
2. Get to Work
3. Get Together
4. update 1.20.60.1020   Edit: also called Ultimate Fix on G4TW

will do the "trick". No need to install additional hot fix or ultimate fix.

Install them simultaniously without playing in between.
If however you DO play in between installations then you must use the cracks/fixes.

64-bits windows: Don't bother about anti-virus. the file rld.dll is for the base game only, file RldOrigin.dll in the expansions is replaced by RldOrigin_x64.dll
You must however start your game with a shortcut of TS4_x64.exe from the folder Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4\Game\Bin and NOT with the shortcut that is produced by the installation-process.
It is advisable to start your game the first time as administrator.

Do you have any other "security software", on your computer, possibly ?

Hello gh0stm4n,

I don't have any antivirus software installed, I have Malwarebytes & SuperAntispyware. I checked my whole laptop for any origin files and there is nothing.  I tried the to go through everything on the link you sent but still get the origin error Why God.

Well, can you look at these 2 programs then, and see if you can add the install folder of The Sims 4, to the "exclusions" ? I know for sure you can do that with Malwarebytes, but I don't know the other program.

Don't forget that as soon as you extract the downloads with Winrar the file RldOrigin.dll can be "attacked" by your AV.
Most probably your existing RldOrigin.dll is already affected.
So before extraction switch your AV off.
Make sure the folder Bin in your installation folder is added to the exclusions of your AV.
Now extract the download and copy/paste the folders again overwriting existing files/folders.
Start the game the first time as an administrator.

If you move the installation folder by cut/paste, make sure to create new shortcuts of TS4.exe and/or TS4_x64.exe  (Folder Program Files(x86) - The Sims 4 - Game - Bin)
