Origin not currently running error

Post by Hollypops on Wed 12 Sep 2018, 18:21

I've downloaded and installed base games and dlc's twice. Followed the guide but I keep running into this error. Origin is not currently running...
The base game and get to work run fine. As soon as i install any other packs and test it this error comes up. Anyone have advice for me? Greatly appreciated

G4TW version installs by default to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4". Move it to, for example "C:\Program Files\The Sims 4".

Why did I not think of this?! I've been trying to work it out for the last 2 days. Thank you anadius!

G4TW - short for Games4TheWorld. Solution is the same, move the game installation folder.

Oh I see, Thank you for that. By the way, instead of paste-ing the Get to Work in the (C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4), then it should be in (C:\Program Files\The Sims 4). right? But when I browsed my Program Files, and there is no Sims 4 folder (C:\Program Files\The Sims 4). So am I going to create a new folder in Program Files?

the Get to Work expansion pack worked, but when I start the same process in the Get Together expansion pack, the error appeared again.

I already said it. Move your game installation folder. So move it from "C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4" to "C:\Program Files\The Sims 4". And then apply DLCs.
