The sims3 launcher cannot connect to origin

When I go on the Sims 3 launcher it keeps saying cannot connect to origin

I have the correct sims 3 update and I think I have the newest update for origin.

Re: The sims3 launcher cannot connect to origin

Try reinstalling Origin and make sure you don't have the EA Download Manager still on your Computer.

 

Follow these steps to remove any left over registry entries after uninstalling Origin: https://help.ea.com/article/manually-uninstalling-origin

 

Also make sure Java, Flash Player and WIndows are up-to-date

Re: The sims3 launcher cannot connect to origin

You can bypass the Origin app and use the manual update found http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1870-can-t-update-the-sims-3-to-v142-fix-manual-patch,then install Sunlit Tides or any other expansion you want to install.

 

This will fix the issue.

This is the only solution that has helped me with this problem. I have had the issue with the launcher since Origin and Ea first teamed up. I have done everything and spoke to suppose tech support and so on. Thanks so much for posting this aquarius007 u are a godsend.

Re: The sims3 launcher cannot connect to origin

if you use the download found at games4theworld and by origin will this make you unable to play your games through your origin account.

Re: The sims3 launcher cannot connect to origin

Did you move over any user files or is this a fresh installation ?

Re: The sims3 launcher cannot connect to origin

 I have been unable to connect to origin for the sims 3. I want to really just play the Supernatural version of the Sims 3 so I am looking for a solution because I have already had two computer people look into it and they can confirm it is not the firewall. All signs point to the launcher or program itself i have uninstalled and reinstalled origin the sims 3 and java but still no luck if anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated. Also this is my first time posting to anything on a forum so thank you in advance. I also know I should post something myself but i really have no idea how to navigate here. Again thank you ^^
