The game needs Origin

Post by defimed on Tue 26 Jul 2016, 02:35

My Sims 4 game (3DM version) worked perfectly fine until yesterday i openend "GeForce Experience" and clicked "Optimize" on my Sims 4. The game says "Origin is currently not running". I uninstall the 3DM version and installed the sims 4 from this site. I have followed the instructions correctly but it's still not working. I don't have any CC or mods. Please help

How did you uninstall the 3DM version, I hope not by just removing the installation folder ?

first, i uninstalled it by removing the program through control panels. I reinstall it but it's still not working. Then i uninstalled it again using Revo Uninstaller.

Sorry for my bad english. Not my first language

Even if the OP "just removed the installation folder", it shouldn't be the cause for this specific problem.

Welcome to the forum @defimed and sorry for the late reply,

I haven't been posting much lately; do you still need help with that ? Have you made sure to correctly configure your anti-virus and Windows Defender "exclusions" ? See for example this topic here, to get you started on this (difficult) issue:

Good luck and do let us know if you need more support on that ! Smile
