I've been having a lot of issues with the sims 4 lately but this one is straight up not letting me play.
it claims the game is not installed even though it is, when i click download it just says its not installed and to install it or retry. rinse and repeat.
anyone know what to do?
@GordonBFreeman82 Try doing a clean uninstall and reinstall of Origin:
Next, download the full Origin installer and run it. Here's the direct download link:
Be sure to run both the installer and Origin itself as an admin: right-click on each and select "Run as Administrator."
If this doesn't help, please open your Origin game library, right-click on the Sims 4 icon, and take a screenshot of the options you see. Please also let me know whether your game is from Origin or Steam.
