Crinrict thank you so much. you saved my life. you have no idea how sad i was that i was unable to play sims 4.
Thank You! this was the only thread i found that solves this. Guys this works!
For the longest time now, halfway through origin updating it stops and never stars again. So Everytime they update the launcher I have to uninstall and reinstall to be able to play the Sims and it is so annoying
You can grab it from HERE >> https://filehippo.com/download_origin/post_download/ <<
--- Exit out of the current Origin. Uninstall from "Programs and Files" and then install the old version. --
Some things to keep in mind while using the old version.
** Make sure you uncheck "Keep Origin and my games up to date" on the installation box that pops up BEFORE you press install. If you don't do this, the Origin client will attempt to immediately update as soon as you install.
** Make sure that you do not exit out of the client. if you can leave the computer on, that is the best way. Simply minimize the client when not in use. If you lose Internet, while having the old client; when it comes back on, it will ask you to update. Just exit out. Uninstall, and reinstall.
** Make sure you by-pass Origin when playing your games. Once you have logged in successfully to Origin, you can play your games. BUT. Others have claimed (I have not confirmed myself) that if you click on the game IN Origin, it will ask you to update Origin and then kick you to Offline mode. BUT. I found. If you right-click on your game on your desktop or where ever you have it installed on your computer.. and click "Run as Administrator" The game will load.. Origin will not interfere, and you will be able to successfully by-pass the broken install update until a permanent solution is available..
This is how i have been playing my game
Happy Gaming !!
for me, proxy was already unticked. but it still won't work
Make sure you have Proxies turned off.
Control Panel --> Internet Options --> Connections --> LAN Settings --> Untick Proxy Server
