My Antivirus program is Norton Internet Security and I don't think I've CD emulators installed. Also I don't have a download version of The Sims 3 or Medieval. I only have a disk version of Medieval.

Thanks guys,

 

seems very common and all error messages look alike and not really OS related (well at least Win 7 and 8.1 seem to have this issue). 

 

Do any of you have th download version of Sims 3 or Medevial installed ? Those come with SecuROM too and there might be a paul.dll that works. Someone posted in another thread that they had luck with that solution.

 

Could you all add your Antivirus program to your posts (just edit it) and also check if you have any cd emulators (like alcohol, nero, ..) installed on your system.

Good Luck

This is the error I get (OS language is Polish and so is the language of the error but the template is exactly the same as in English).

Wndows defender and windows firewall are running in the background, but the issue is still present after disabling them.

 

No cd-emulating software is installed.


No other Sims games are installed. 

 

Repair option in Origin didn't help. 

 

I hope you will be able to solve that issue! :-)  If you think that replacing PAUL.DLL with the version from The Sims 3 could help maybe you could upload that DLL here so we can try doing it? 

 

Edit: I found paul.dll from The Sims 3 in the Internet and replaced it as you advised - the game started (no "repair" in origin was needed)  - thank you.
