Issues Launching Sims 4

Post by Xenia on Mon 25 Dec 2017, 01:02


I have the sims 4 downloaded, as well as other expansion packs. I decided that I wanted to add on Parenthood, Toddlers Stuff & Cats and Dogs. I went to install one and then messed up the entire Sims 4.. now when it launches it says 

"A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

How can I fix everything and install the new expansion packs??

Remove all previous installations with a program like Revo Uninstaller (free).
The install everything again in the correct order.

1. Base Game
2. When base game is installed MOVE, not COPY the folder The Sims 4 from C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts to f.e. just Program Files (x86)
3. Install Get to Work -> Get Together -> City Living -> Toddlers/Vampires ->Parenthood without playing in between
4. Delete the folder Game from your install folder
5. Install Fitness -> Toddler acc. -> Cats & Dogs
