The following tips need to be done for the exe-File of the game. It’s best to do it for both the 32 bit Version (TS4.exe) as well as TS4_64.exe). Also add the Origin.exe file.
Both Sims files can be found in the folder <Installation folder>\Game\Bin and \Game\Bin_LE
The Origin file can be found in the folder you installed Origin in (Default: c:\programs(x86)\Origin)
- Turn off controlled folder Access or add the files as exceptions
- Add Sims 4 and Origin as an exception to your Antivirus/Firewall (refer to the handbook of the software you use)
- Start the game and Origin as administrator.
