Sims 4 not opening all of a sudden

Post by Trixie45 on Fri 20 Jan 2017, 00:44

Downloaded sims 4 and all the expansion packs, including the city living update. The program was working fine for a week. My comp had to reboot. Now it won't load asking for Origin. I had the program excluded in my malware. After update all of a sudden my Avast is asking to let it thru. Is there something I missed?

Thanks



Mod edit: moved to "The Sims Emporium".

The most simple solution, when you have a 64-bits Windows, is to start the game with TS4_x86 instead of TS4.
If you dn't know where to find it, rightclick on the shortcut for the Sims 4 om your desktop.
Click on "open file location" and you will see it there.
The so called cracks that causes your AV to react are ignored for the 64-bits  (RldOrigin.dll is seen as a virus, RldOrigin_x86.dll is not, don't ask me why)

When you only have 32-bits windows, re-apply the latest crack from City Living.

The game was working fine with all expansions. There were no windows updates. Antivirus was on too. Went to the folder, there is only TS4.exe The gme was downloaded from here.  Thanks

When you downloaded from G4TW and installed all expansions properly you MUST have TS4_x64

TS4_x64 is not there. I re-downloaded the base game. Shut down my antivirus and reinstalled.

TS_64 is not in the base game. I think it started with the Get Together expansion. I know for sure it is in Get Together, and City Living.

That's why I stated that TS4_x64 had to be present

Maybe you have more than 1 AV program, like f.e. Windows Defender and took it a while before it was detected.

Ok this is what I found. I am using Avast anitvirus. When it is off Sims runs. I tried to set the install folder as excluded.....still won't let it run. Not sure where else in the program to set. Any idea?
