About sims4 64-bit version. [SOLVED]

Post by deweyes on Sat 06 Aug 2016, 04:28

Hello! Smile

Thank you guys so much for the latest fix. Good stuff.
I have a question tho. According to the instructions I have to put my game folder under "program files" if I wanted to run the 64-bit version. But what if I put the game folder under "C:\Games" tho? It should run the 64-bit version perfectly fine, right?

Thanks in advance.

Hello @deweyes,

The thing with C:\Program files was a suggestion (and arguably an oversimplification) from me. Of course it should work too if you put the install folder under C:\Games.

The "message" is (or was), that if you wanted to run the 64-bit version of the game, you cannot leave the install folder under C:\Program files (x86), since that location is meant for 32-bit applications in the first place. Maybe running the 64-bit version should work fine there too, but there may be some problems. 

Personally, I have almost all my games under C:\Program files. Because there, I can run both 32-bit and 64-bit apps. Maybe we will edit the install instructions in future versions of the fix though, we'll see. Smile

No, it wasn't a 'silly question'.

That said, have fun with the game, and if you ever need more support, don't hesitate to open a new topic. Problem solved, topic closed for now. Smile
