Sims 4 has stopped working

When i get my Sim to travel to another lot, the game crashes, saying that “Sims 4 has stopped working”. It describes the error as an APPCRASH. This is very frustrating because while my computers specs surpass the minimum requirements, I have gone down to the lowest settings in attempt to get it to stop crashing.

solution : first try run game as administrator or in compatibility mode. If that doesn’t work, you can try running it in Windowed Mode.

sims 4 black screen error

the bug occurs is because there is a problem detecting Origin, try to look into the Program and Features tool
you’ll notice that Origin is not listed anywhere
Uninstall the game from Origins
C:\Program Files (x86)/Origin/OriginUninstall.exe
Restart your pc then reinstall Origins and The Sims 4

The Sims 4 missing msvcp120.dll

if sims 4 won’t start / launch after you click it then try to install vcredist : x86 dan x64. on _installer folder

the sims 4 install problem

When install is run, it stops half way through with an error message “Error: The VC++ runtime redistributable package was not installed successfully. Setup cannot continue. (5)”
go to the Microsoft webpage and download it directly from there, instead of using the installer from the game

the sims 4 save problem

Game says that the save file I’m trying to load was saved with a newer version of the game than is currently installed and I need to update.
It keeps on saying that it cannot load saved games because they were created using a newer version of the game.
solution : Make sure you are login Origin and Origin is running

other error glitch :
So I can click on everything; menus, everything in the user interface on the sides. But, when a click on an objects like a fridge or a sim no options pop up for it.
Every time I use my keyboard the game locks up for at least 5-10sec. This issue is incredibly annoying as I like to use WASD to move the camera vs using the mouse.
Apparently the Origin in game overlay was the culprit. By disabling this my issue went away.
