Sims 4 stopped working

Post by stevenquartz on Fri 02 Feb 2018, 16:08

hi all (or admins only im not sure)

not long ago, i downloaded all the expansion packs and th base game from this website.
 
initially there were a few bumps, but i managed to start the game and play it several times

recently, i unpinned the sims 4 icon from my taskbar and now when i try to get it to work from the Game folder, it shows me a white screen and then crashes stating that the "sims 4 has stopped working"

i'd really appreciate the help, thank you

Many people have more than one location for The Sims 4.
So are you sure your new shortcut is pointing to the correct directory ?
Have a search on your computer for TS4.exe
