OK, according to the log the game is correctly installed.

 

Do you have set any compatibility settings in the "TS3.exe"?

Did you tried to run the game from the "TS3.exe" directly? (With and without Administrator mode.)

Do other Origin games work?

@Holger1405 I do not have any compatibility settings, and I tested them and they don't change anything. The game doesn't launch directly from TS3.exe even if I do use admin mode. It still goes through origin and doesn't open or change anything. My other origin games work too.

OK, there is no info in the DxDiag or the install log about why TS3 shouldn't run at all.

 

So I need to ask you some more questions, some of them might already be asked, but we need to make sure.

 

That is a vanilla installation of TS3, meaning no mods or other third party content at all?

Origin is not crashing after you try to execute TS3?

Do you have Origin in game enabled? If so disable it > Test.

You flowed @puzzlezaddict guide to uninstall Origin with Revo to the letter?  

What other games do you run on Origin?

 

Please clear your Origin cache again after this guide:

All settings in Origin (only in Origin not in the games) are back to default settings after this.)

 

  • Close Origin completely.
    (right click on the Origin symbol in the task bar > close)
  • Press the Windows key and "R" at the same time.
  • Type or copy and paste "%ProgramData%/Origin" (without quotes) into the new window > hit ENTER
  • Delete all the files and folders in the Origin folder, except for the "LocalContent" folder.
    (The "LocalContent" folder must remain untouched.)
  • Delete the "The Sims 3" folder inside the "LocaContent" folder.
  • Press the Windows key and "R" at the same time.
  • Type or copy and paste "%AppData%" (without quotes) into the new window > hit ENTER
  • Now your Windows explorer should have brought you to your "C:\Users\>your user name<\AppData\Roaming" folder.
  • Delete the "Origin"  folder inside the "Roaming" folder.
  • In the address bar of your Windows explorer click on "AppData".
  • Open the "Local" folder.
  • Delete the "Origin"  folder inside the  "Local" folder.
  • Restart your PC. > test

If that don't works load up a new DxDiag.
