Sims 4 extensions over the original game?

Post by dollkurumi on Fri 26 Jan 2018, 02:21

So I actually bought the original game but I recently wanted to get the vampires pack. Whenever I try it I get the error "run the game as administrator if it is the first time you start it. Always make sure Origin client is not running" I have seen many people get the similar problem and the fix was always to move the sims 4 folder from electronic arts to Program Files or Program Files (x86). But since I do not have a sims 4 folder on the electronic arts folder I am not sure what to do.

Most probably your The Sims 4 folder is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4.
You'll have to move it out of this directory if you want to play pirated versions.

Welcome to the Forum @dollkurumi,

In addition, make sure to close Origin completely before starting up the game, also the login prompt. You have to start the game from either the TS4.exe or TS4_x64.exe, located under the Game\Bin directory, of where Sims 4 is installed.

Also be aware that if you simply copy/paste pirated DLC over your legit basegame of The Sims 4, you won't be able anymore to use any online features (like the Gallery).
