Download the Origin client here: http://origin.com/download

 

Login with the account you registered the game on and find the game in my games to download.

The game can be installed in any computer through Origin, and can be played in any computer as long as they aren't using the same Origin account at once (this may apply to computers online only). The only thing that won't transfer is the save file, you may need to search it manually and copy it to the new computer.

I'm having this same problem, and if I can find a way to do it, I'll reply. I just got my new computer and I've got years worth of Sims 3 stuff and a few months worth of Sims 4 on it. It will be a tragedy if I can't figure it out.

I think that I might have it figured out, I have yet to try it though.

 I am switching currently from one laptop to another.  I just reinstalled origin, then I clicked on Sims 4 and  then install.  I will update this comment saying what happened.

Hi everyone,

 

I've just installed origin and the sims 4 onto my PC as my laptop can't handle the game any more - I don't seem to have my little people though. I noted when reading this thread people were saying saved data was PC specific, does that mean I need to start again from scratch? Just a bit lost and not tech savvy, so any help greatly appreciated.

You can copy your saves and tray folders from the laptop to the PC. If you use Mods or CC also copy the Mods folder.
