Hi, I've tried everything that you have suggested in other threads and nothing is working. I press play while on the origin app and it minimises for a second and then opens it up again. I'm not sure what to do I think it might just be my computer. I don't know if I did it right but I saved my dxdiag if that helps. Also, after I deleted origin the hard way when I open it now it doesn't load anything other than like the structure of the tab if you get what I mean.

Re: Sims 3 launcher wont start

@Lydlovescake  I've moved your post to the master thread for your particular issue.  For Sims 3, you'll need to manually install DirectX 9, as described here:

 

https://answers.ea.com/t5/Technical-Issues-PC/SIMS-3-GAME-WON-T-LAUNCH-WINDOWS-10/m-p/10711778#M2478...

 

For the Origin issue, please clear its cache and uninstall it "the hard way," as described in these articles:

 

https://help.ea.com/en/help/faq/clear-cache-to-fix-problems-with-your-games/

https://help.ea.com/en/help/origin/origin/manually-uninstalling-origin/

 

Reinstall Origin using the full installer (direct download link):

 

http://download.dm.origin.com/origin/live/OriginSetup.exe

 

Run the installer as an admin: right-click on the download and select "Run as administrator."  Restart when you're done, and run Origin itself as an admin too.  If it still doesn't open, let me know.

Sims 3 wont launch

I've just downloaded tsm3 and 2 expansions. I've just tried opening it through origin and it comes off for a few seconds and goes back on, I tried just clicking the icon on my desktop and nothing. I read some solutions like turning Wi-Fi  off, removing tsm3 file from the EA folder but nothing is working. I'm not the best with computers so any help would be greatly appreciated.
