I understand that you have a 64-bit system and installed a game. You can't only launch this game.
Go to Program Filles / Origin Games / The Sims4 / installer, open the folder vc / vc2010sp / redistr. You will find two files in the redistr folder that you can install.
Then again open the folder vc / this time go to the folder vc2013 / then again to the folder redistr there will be files from 2015 - install them also.

looks like theres an issue in the vc2013 folder with those files. it said its not designed to run on windows or contains an error. I tried to re install them from microsoft site but still has the same error and wont let me download. argggg Frown It says "C:\Windows\system32\Cabinet.dll" not designed to run or has an error. I guess i'll contact microsoft
