Yeah, exactly.. Can I resolve this problem?

I uninstall and reinstall Origin and the "Error 3000" doesn't come back, BUT th game doesn't start.

Not to downplay your issue, but that was freakin' hilarious.

 

Googled Error 3000 and nothing. You'd think they would at least give you a hint as to what was going on.

 

Someone found an Origin log file that might help. C:\Program Data\Origin\logs. Worth a shot.

There's a SimCity log file written on startup in

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\SimCity\SimCityUserData\yourname-PC_config.log.

 

It's contiguous but might highlight an issue. You would think the error has to be logged somewhere.

 

Maybe Windows Event Viewer (Applications) ?
