No error message being given - game just won't start no matter what

Post by carol_mh on Wed 06 Sep 2017, 03:56

Ok so I had the base game installed and everything worked fine...

I decided to install all the expansions and "stuff" packs... and followed the instructions given.

Everything has been installed and moved to C:\Program Files (x86)\The Sims 4

After finishing all of them though, when I go into the game/bin folder and try to start the game...... nothing happens.

I don't get any of the error messages I keep seeing in other posts, or anything. It literally just will not start or load or anything and I can't figure out why.

Has anyone seen this before? Sad
