"ORIGIN IS NOT RUNNING"

Post by jehotdog on Fri 20 Jan 2017, 13:52

I swear I followed exactly every single instruction here http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t21806-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-4-correctly and didn't skip any, also viewed all YouTube videos out there but I still couldn't get the game starting. It shows the error "Origin is not running blah blah." It says in the instructions that you don't need Origin at all which is what I did cause I don't have Origin in my laptop.

Here's the other things I did again and again since yesterday:
1) Added Install/Download locations to my exception list
2) Turned off my Avast, Windows Defender
3) Allowed it through my Firewall
4) Followed everything in the Installation Guides
5) Uninstalled, installed, uninstalled and installed the game again
6) Moved the folder from Program Files/Electronic Arts to just Program Files


I AM DESPERATE FOR HELP. Help  It's so hard to look at some people's video and you can't play the game yourself. It's so hard to be jealous or envious to some other's household. Please help me.  Why God. Thank you!  All Hail Carlos!

The first thing that comes up in my mind is:
When did you add the various locations to the exceptions of your AV, before or after downloading ?
If the answer is after, then your crack might be already put in quarantine before installing your game(s).

To avoid all questions about AV, try to start your game with TS4_x86.exe (you must have a 64-bits Windows for that however).
64-bits Windows owners do not have to take these AV precautions, don't ask me why.
RldOrigin.dll is treated as a virus whilst RldOrigin_x64.dll is not.

Well I actually added the exceptions before I extracted the WinRar files, basically that's after I downloaded all rar files. Tho when I checked my virus chest in Avast there's no record of the cracks.

Don't think I can do that cause mine's just 32-bits.  Why God.

Just an update here, now I already got rid of the Origin error but here comes "initialization error at startup" this time.  Why God.
