Game Won't start (Origin Error)

Post by CakeTheMad1 on Fri 09 Sep 2016, 12:57

Hello!

I've been having this problem with launching the sims 4 for a while now, so I decided to download the latest Ultimate fix, and it's still happening. 

Upon launching the Sims 4, an error message comes up-


'Run the Game as Administrator if it is the first time you start it. Always make sure Origin Client is not Running'

I have run it as admin, with the same notice. I have the origin client running in the background (offline). I have no mods or cc, and I also have moved my Sims 4 folder into 2 different locations now (in Program Filesx86 and Standard Program Files)

I really have no idea what to do at this point, because I really don't want to reinstall the game, and I don't want to give EA my money  WhatDidUJustCallMe?

Thank you in adance

Completely close off Origin. Running in the background (offline) means that Origin is still active on your computer.
Check the taskbar (near the clock) and click on the ^ sign. Look in the window for the Origin icon. Shut it !
