Unable to Start, Update Missing?_? [SOLVED]

Post by StarriEyes on Thu 10 Aug 2017, 05:56

Hello, I followed all the instructions when installing the sims 4 and when finished i received a error "Unable to Start"



that is the error message, is there any chance you possibly know what I did wrong along the way, I will be uninstalling and installing one at a time to see where the error comes from later too.

Hi there,

There is no need to re-install the game. Go to Documents\EA\The Sims 4 and delete GameVersion.txt.

In case you are playing both an Origin/ZLOrigin version as well as a pirated G4TW game:

Go to the installation folder of your Origin/ZLOrigin game, probably Program Files (x64)\Origin Games\The Sims 4
Open the folder Game\Bin and copy the file Default.ini to the installation folder for the G4TW game, probably Program Files (x64)\The Sims 4
Again open Game\Bin and paste it (replacing the existing Default.ini)

Now your G4TW game "thinks" it has the latest version and you don't have to delete GameVersion.txt everytime you switch games.
Repeat this every time there is an update on any game (G4TW or Origin/ZLOrigin}

Unfortunately NO. The game is still version 1.31 for the pirated game
