That's the same thing. The game doesn't care about "Game_" folder. It only looks in "Game" one. So now move files from "Game" folder to "Game_", delete "Game" and rename "Game_" to "Game".

Delete "Game" folder, download and extract "Game" folder from Update 1.46 thread. Not the update, just the Game folder, there's separate link.

Add "The Sims 4\Game\Bin" folder to your anti-virus exception list and extract Game folder again.

It still hasn't started. it still says something about OrangeEmu.dll. IDK what else to do at this point. this is the first time i've ever encountered an issue with this.

Make sure that your The Sims  folder is in the exceptions of your anti-virus.
Same applies for the folder you download the Game folder to.
Then extract Game with Winrar and place it in your install folder The Sims 4

If you have Windows 10, a start could be to tweak Windows Defender:
