CATS AND DOGS - Unable to start: required game data is missing or damaged

Post by irlwench on Sun 12 Nov 2017, 19:02

So, the torrent finished downloading for me this morning (still seeding though) and I installed it exactly how it should be (no anti-virus, in the program files x86 folder, etc.) but whenever I try to launch the game (as an administrator, obviously), I get a message saying "Unable to start: Cannot start because required game data is missing or damaged. Please repair or install the game via origin." I don't have any mods or CC, and I have the Rldorigin files, so I don't know why I keep getting this message.

I tried to download the new "no origin" folder from here but I cannot put the files in my game folder because I do not have administer permission to do so - I tried to change that but I can't. EDIT: I got this part to work and replaced the files with the new ones, but I'm still having the same issue.

Please help, I just want to play the game Sad

Hello @irlwench and sorry to hear about these difficulties,


Have you installed ALL Games4theworld Sims 4 releases, in the order described here?

Did you also use the program WinRAR for extraction, of the torrents?

I have the same issue, even if i have all the DLC in the right order, and i extracted it with Winrar and Utorrent, two times. And i still have the 'damaged or missing" text.
I put away the EP04 folder from my sims folder, and i can play the game, but it's telling me the Cat and Dog DLC is still loading...
