creepy and cute installed but not showing up

i have spore, spore: creepy and cute, and spore: galactic adventures and they are all installed- but Creepy and Cute will not show in-game. 

i have :

  • reinstalled all games
  • reinstalled origin
  • run as administrator
  • cleared cache
  • checked the files to see that the folder for it is there and has contents (it does)

i have looked at every solution on here but none has applied fully to my situation or they havent worked!

thanks, i went through many support chats and none of the solutions worked until i tried something myself that i think was the solution:

 

after uninstalling/reinstalling Origin, i uninstalled Spore. When i went to reinstall it- i told it NOT to install C&C with it. after that i went to C&C and installed it after Spore installed. not sure what it was, but doing that fixed the issue. Mustve been skipping over something when it installed together

Hi @MorrysIllusion

 

Do you play with the Origin client or with a physical version?
Check if the spore folder and its contents under C / Program files X86 / Origin "OriginGames" are not called Anonymous

i play the game through Origin now- i have it on disc but was not able to use the codes through Origin for them. I went to support and they made them visible/added the downloads to my account

i went to /program files x86/origin but im not sure if you are asking me to find a folder called "OriginGames"? regardless, i do not see any folder called "anonymous"

Ok, if you do not see this folder, then should game be installed! Navigate to Origin, right-click on the spore cover and say "Repair Game".

Make sure that Origin turned OFF in Game, take a look under Origin Settings

i did as you said, but nothing was changing when i repaired the game. i decided to uninstall Galactic Adventures in case it was conflicting, and open the Base Spore game to see if C&C appeared.

but after repairing it again, and i thought it had worked as it told me C&C had finished downloading- it did not seem to work. it still says C&C is installed but nothing shows in game.

I recommend that you contact a game advisor, I do not know how I could help!

The solution in this thread worked for me on win10, origin version. Mods may want to add this to the master FAQ.

How did you tell it to not install C&C?

@MorrysIllusion It seems that has worked for me as well, although it remains to be seen if it will still be working after I attempt to change the language...
