If you open your task manager, do you have any processes ts4.exe already running ? If so, try to kill it

 

If that doesn't work, try reinstalling Origin

Open up your task manager and click "more details" 

If you see Sims 4 is open, close it. 

This should work.

Hi @Tallulah_44

 

could you try repairing the game through Origin and deleting your Origin cache files: http://sims4.crinrict.com/en/2014/09/delete-origin-cache-files/

Unfortunately, It won't even get to the point where it can create the folder in my documents, I deleted the folder when clearing my cache's. oops. I will try creating the folder myself, with permissions and get back and let you know. Thanks though. Crossing my fingers.
