I downloaded the  Zclient ZIP linked above, and connected with my account and worked fine. Haven't tested ZLOrigin though. Also is this the correct configuration for the 'host' file?Zclient "can't connect"  - Page 2 Captur10

yes, as you did, was all that was needed. (pasting at the bottom)

Just be sure that when you save it, it gets saved as hosts (with no extension) and not hosts.txt. which has happened to me when i used notepad in windows 10.

when i saved it also made me save to a new directory (Documents)

so after saving i had to go into windows explorer click the view button (located near the top of window) then select "show file extension" or something like that.
then goto my documents folder and check the file which in my case was hosts.txt which i just had to rename to hosts deleting the .txt extension.

copy the file back to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\  and overwrite the existing file

Thanks! I verified that it works by visiting the zloemu.tk website and it worked!

I had the same issue so I followed Tarac's steps and it opened. However, the sims 4 needed an update in order to be played, but it has been updating itself for 3 hours now and it's on 40%. Any suggestions?

We, apparently, are not the only ones who try to download.
Mine is at 65% and still more than 6 hours to go.

Like I hinted earlier here, this is a highly-anticipated DLC. Everybody is eagerly waiting for this thing, and in the meantime there is this 1.44 patch which seems to fix a larger number of problems as well. Everybody is downloading at the same time, and there is only so much in terms of server capacity.

Expect even slower speeds for the actual "Seasons" DLC.  Haters gonna hate Carlos is tha man

EA always posts an update prior to the release of a new pack.

Try following:
Close ZLOrigin and Zclient
Re-boot your computer
Login to Zclient
On the bottom of that screen select your Sims 4 game (32 or 64 bits)
Click Run

Zclient "can't connect"  - Page 2 Zclientlog_orig

You can now play the game without loading ZLOrigin

What actually worked for me was to turn off my windows defender so I can just start it up.

I can't get ZClient to connect, no matter what I do. After it disconnects, a notice comes up saying, Windows cannot find 'ZClient.exe.' Make sure you typed the name correctly and try again.  I had just finished getting all the Sims 4 downloads done, when zclient and ZLOrigin disconnected for some reason. Have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. Got the same message every time. Can someone please help me find an answer to this.

You'll probably have to add your ZClient/ZLOrigin-folder to the "exclusions" in your antivirus. If you use Windows 10, check this out:
https://www.games4theworld.club/t32067-two-ways-of-disabling-windows-defender-under-windows-10

If you have any other antivirus or antimalware programs, you may have to do extra research on how to add exclusions properly.

Once you did that however, re-download the ZClient/ZLOrigin, and try logging in again.

Additional tip: if you have the "legit" Origin installed on the same computer, I would recommend renaming its folder. So my Origin is installed under C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin, so I renamed that "Origin"-folder temporarily. Otherwise (there is a high likelihood) you'll end up with errors when trying to download from ZLOrigin.
