Game won't load since ToddlerStuff Pack. [SOLVED]

Post by djottard on Sun 27 Aug 2017, 23:10

Hello there!

When double-clicking on the shortcut, the game doesn't load. I think I installed everything as advised, I'm  used to the procedure. I already installed the previous expansions, I copied & pasted the files where they are supposed to be and my folder was already in C://Programs. When I double-click on the shortcut, something appears & disappears quickly from the toolbar, as if the game could not launch properly. However I do not receive any error popup. 

I have to tell you that there are 2 things that are different from the previous installlations that could be related to the issue. When I installed the Fitness pack, I  renamed the Game Folder "Game_", Then, according to the Toddler Stuff Pack guidelines I had to rename the Game Folder any name I wanted too, so I called it "Game__".  
Now I have 3 Game Folders called "Game", "Game_" and "Game__". Could it be the root of the problem? 

The second thing that changed since Fitness Pack is that my computer kind of made me update Windows --' Since then, the settings changed and I cannot easily control the Windows firewall as I used to do... I think it might interfere with the launching of The Sims.. What do you guys think?

Before posting, I tried to fix the problem by applying the EC3 -fix . But nothing happened. 

Sooo I rely on you guys! Smile Any help would be greatly appreciated! Smile

xoxo

EDIT: I clicked on the icon, just to try. And I received a message telling me that  had to update the game on Origin

Hello again,

Please delete ALL your "Game" folders for now. Then re-download a fresh one, from this topic here:
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t29990-fix-for-endless-household-loading-screen-version-1-33-38-1020

Also check for your anti-virus software & Windows Defender again, to see if the exclusions haven't somehow reset themselves. Smile
