First thing to try is to delete Options.ini from Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.
Then restart the game. Still the same error ?, please report back.

Sometimes a simple reboot of the PC can solve the problem.

Welcome to the Forum,

If you haven't done so already, please give this fix here a try as well. In addition to what Tarac suggested.

Good luck!

Edit: also try deleting the Config.log file under Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.

Hello, I have the same problem, on a newly built pc, and I can't start the game without that error popping up. 
I just downloaded this fix and it still won't work..

I might have found a fix.. I went into compatibility and I ticked "disable fullscreen optimisations" and it finally started. 
I think it was a resolution problem. 

Hope this saves someone's day like it saved mine! Very Happy
