Sims crack asks for Origin to run.

Post by daddledoo on Fri 07 Apr 2017, 20:45

Hi all,

I'm trying to install the Sims 4 on my friend's computer. I already had all the downloads so I transferred them to the desktop of his laptop. The versions that I have downloaded (from this website) of the Sims 4 are "The Sims 4 Deluxe Edition", "The Sims 4 Get To Work", and "The Sims 4 Get Together". 

I'm working on my friend's laptop through teamviewer and first installed the "Deluxe edition". Then I transferred all the files for "Get to work" to the correct folder (according to the installation guide), and finally I did the same thing for the "Get together" files. However, when I now click the "TS4_x64.exe" file on his computer, it gives me the following message: Origin is currently not running. Please make sure that Origin is running before playing The Sims 4. [d3382ced]

We first tried running it with Origin completely closed, because that's what it said in the installation guide. That didn't work. Then we tried it with Origin open but not logged in, didn't work. And now we tried it with Origin logged in, and it still gives the same error.. How do I get it to work now?



Mod edit: moved to "The Sims 4 Downloads Support".

Most probably the anti-virus has disabled the crack.
Place the install folder in the exceptions of your anti-virus and apply the crack again. (Chance still exists that your AV has also disabled the crack in your download-folder).
Is your install folder a subfolder in Electronic Arts, Origin or Origin Games ?
If so move it to Program Files directly (C.:\Program Files (x64)\The Sims 4)

On second thought: You mention TS4_x64.exe. Anti-virus will not attack the crack for the 64-bits Windows. Are you sure your friends computer is 64-bits ?

Thanks for the reply. His antivirus is off and I'm certain he has a 64-bits pc. The install folder was also already in the place you mentioned, so directly in program files. We still can't figure out what's wrong with his game.

When you are not living far apart, copy your install folder over on a USB stick or external drive and then copy that to your friends computer.
