Hey!

I followed the guide of installing the Sims 4 from this site, along with the order and moving the folder away from the EA folder. I keep on receiving this error. I also attempted to reinstall the fix three times now. Please help me. Thanks ;-)

Hello and welcome to the forum @Silverprince,

Sorry to hear about your difficulties, but for now have a look at this thread here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t18501-unable-to-start-initialization-error-at-startup-updated-on-11-9-2015

Just read through for now, and just try applying the portion of Windows Defender, on your own system. In Windows 7 and Windows 8 you can turn off Windows Defender completely. In Windows 10 it's a bit more tricky, but there you could add simply the entire C: drive to the "exclusions" - since the Defender there cannot be turned off directly.

After you applied the Windows Defender-exclusion, try re-copying & re-pasting the latest TS4 Ultimate fix. Then try the game again. Good luck ! Smile
