I had this issue as well. I tried multiple things, getting frustrated, before I found an article about  installing the VC ++ redistributable package.

 

What I did:

 

1. Go to Windows Update

2. Click Installed Updates

3. Find Update KB2918614 in the list and uninstall it.

4. Restart your computer.

5. Run Sims 4 installation again.

6. Play Sims 4! Yay!!

 

Hope this helps!

I had the same problem and tried various fixes including trying to download a new copy of the redistributable (then I got an error about the key not being valid for use in specific state).  I finally found that the Windows Security Update KB2918614 was causing the issue after a convoluted series of searches which I can't remember my logic.  I uninstalled the security update, ran the install in Origin and it worked.  I then went back and installed the Windows fle because it was a security update after all!
