Origin Error?

Post by laurennsimmerr on Thu 21 Jul 2016, 05:20

Okay so I installed everything correctly, the folders are added to my exceptions list, and I have no idea what to do.
Whenever I try to open The Sims 4, I get a message saying
"Run the game as administrator if it is the first time you start it. Always make sure Origin client is not running."
Even if I do run as administrator, the same thing happens.
I'm confused and don't know what to do, so can anyone help?

Hello and welcome to the forum @laurennsimmer,

Have you made sure to MOVE away the install folder "The Sims 4", from C:\Program files (x86)\Electronic Arts ? The folder can be moved directly under C:\Program files (x86), or even C:\Program files.

Delete any desktop shortcuts you may still have, and re-create new desktop shortcuts for the game. Then try running TS4 again and see what happens.
