Does Error code: de4ee14f:29f00e76:00000000:4b0d852b (Sims 4 is already running error) also go along with this issue? My daughter and I've been playing the Sims 4 for years and it's never done this until the most recent update.

We've tried;

- Repair through Origin

- Un-installing and re-installing both Origin and Sims 4

- Clearing all CC, mods, cache

- Looking through task manager and cancelling any tasks related to Origin and EA

 

Nothing has worked so far.

Re: [CURRENT ISSUE] Sims 4 refusing to open up after the November patch 2020

★★★★★ Novice

When I try and open sims 4 I get this code [ed35e0ea:29f00e76:00000000:181dd51], it says that sims 4 is running in the background, when it is not. No CC only mod is MCCC. Restarted computer, deleted the sims, than reinstalled it, deleted Orgin than reinstalled it.  Been like that since Novermber 10th.
