Origin crashes when I try to download additional content that comes with new expansions

★ Novice

I have recently purchased sims 3 with 6 expansion packs, I have only loaded 2 expansions, pets and supernatural, but after I register the game on sims.com, it says I have additional content to download but everytime I click download, origin crashes and it doesn't download anything, can anyone help? is there something I am doing wrong?

Try the following

 

  1. Start Origin
  2. Click Play on Origin to start the launcher
  3. Close Origin (completely not just minimize)
  4. Click add to game on the exchange or download on Store Stuff.

When you click download, is the launcher and/or the game running ?
