Origin Legacy CLI has stopped working.

★★★★ Newbie

I recently just bought and downloaded the digtial copy of the sims 3 supernatural and showtimes. I also updated my sims 3 launcher to ver. 1.55. and everytime i try to launch either supernatural or show time there is a pop up saying the Origin Legacy CLI isn't working and that it can not connect to origin even though I have already been logged in. Even when i try to launch the sims 3, it will say the same thing. If there is anything you guys can do to help it will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The first thing I would try is to uninstall and reinstall the Origin client. This is done in a very short time and is far easier than uninstalling the games.


You can get the latest version of the Origin client here:


If that does not help, please read here:


Unable to connect with Origin by crinrict

When I open the launcher, I get the following message: "Unable to connect with Origin".
