Failed to launch the sims 4 [SOLVED]

Post by panqtaylor on Thu 17 Aug 2017, 17:40

Hey guys.
Can anyone help me here? I've just downloaded the 4 latest packs of The Sims 4 in the right order, and whenever I try to run the game this message pops up:

 

I tried to run it as admin. Any guess what the problem could be?

Thank you.

Hi there and welcome to the forum!


Is your Sims 4 installation folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\EA ? If yes, move them out and put them to either 1)Program Files (x86) or 2)Program Files. Also, make sure that your anti-virus and windows defender had been set up properly, prior to downloading and extracting the files.

Thank you for your solution, but I tried it and it doesn't work.
I also tried to redownload all the packs and now this is the message I got:

I see. Regarding the current error, you can delete the GameVersion.txt in your Documents\EA\The Sims 4 and then run the game again.

Problems with the Sims 4, let ZLOrgin repair these

Post by Tarac on Fri 18 Aug 2017, 13:39

ZLOrigin can repair your G4TW downloaded The Sims 4 game.
Log in to ZLOrigin, rightclick on the picture of The Sims 4 and select Repair.
Your game will be repaired and also updated with non-installed DLC's and the latest game-version.

You can play the Sims 4 still off-line if you wish.
Download THIS FILE, extract with Winrar, rename the folder Game to Game fitness and copy it to your install folder. (You're free to give it any name, like Game cracked or Game off-line)
Image:


When added, make shortcuts from Game fitness\Bin\TS4.exe or TS4_x64.exe for your desktop. You can now play off-line
Of course when playing off-line Origin or ZLOrigin should not be open (active) on your computer.
