Can not delete or open output file.

Post by aidan2512 on Thu 12 Oct 2017, 16:49

Hi there,
I've been downloading the Sims 4 and expansion packs and the base game has downloaded perfectly. I've followed all the instructions in the installation guides but when I try to copy and replace the Get To Work files to the Sims 4 file it says the output file can not be deleted or opened. Is there a solution to this?
Thanks for your help!

Hello and welcome to the Forum @aidan2512,

I would guess that the problem in your case is something very simple (to solve). Try marking the "Get to Work"-files with your mouse - all of them of course. Then you press CTRL + C.

Now go inside your folder where The Sims 4 is installed. Press CTRL + V. When prompted, choose "replace files in the destination".

Maybe you were trying to copy/paste while your mouse pointed to one of the .exe or .dll files, or something similar.
