Sims 4 won't launch, says Origin isn't open?

★★★★ Novice

I've been trying to launch Sims 4 so I can make our DnD party as sims. But everytime I try, it says Origin needs to be running in order to open the sims, but it IS running. I have tried repairing the game and updating it, but it says it couldn't be downloaded properly. This goes for all my Origin games.

Could you manually reset Origin and see if it helps -

Using CC/Mods is at your own risk, EA are not responsible for making the game compatible with 3rd party content, the creator is.
