    Well, looking at the config info in the files, I’ve got compatible everything. Unfortunately I still can’t play, even after mucking around in my antivirus settings. I have no clue what’s stopping it from loading. My drivers are up to date. My card is supported. I am running a powerful enough computer. It’s on Windows 7, which the game supports.

    I can’t figure out why I can’t run this demo… It really is looking like I’ll have to skip out on Sims 4, if I can’t even get the demo to run.

    1. hatunemiku01 says:

      Same here. It won’t even open.
      I hope they come up with a fix for this soon, or I hope I figure out what I’m doing wrong.

    2. Nicki says:

      Same..Its So Annoying Ive wanted to go on The Sims 4 Thing for ages..& just to fing out it doesnt work…Grr

      1. Kailana says:

        I know, its sorta annoying. I was really looking forward to it ;3;

    3. Elena says:

      So I’ve installed origin and the sims 4 demo, and it downloaded fine, but when I try to open it, it says my video card is not suitable for the sims 4, even though my dad checked it and the card was fine. What do I do? I’ve waited for ages and now I am getting really annoyed.

      1. Callíe says:

        It wont run for me either, and it’s on my new Windows 7

        1. me 2 uggggghhhh!!!!!!!!!! so anoying!

      2. Kassandra says:

        How do you download the sims 4 demo? i already installed origin. i redeemed my code but i can’t play it.

    4. no one says:

      have you got problems with sims4 too? don’t worry, at least you can download it .
      every time i go to origin and try to download the demo, the chrome says:this page has got a redirect bucle. I was waiting so many time for TS4 and that’s what i’ve got.

      pd: sorry about spelling.

    5. Lapis says:

      yes same happens to me but it says needed space in my NEW computer (3 months)

  2. Lucy says:

    I don’t know about everyone else but this is the first time I’ve actually liked/loved the base game clothing and hair. Especially the hair. TS3 hair was the biggest disaster I’ve seen, especially the hair that came with Seasons or w/e it was. The one with the really big curls, anyone know what I’m talking about? What were they thinking? lol

    Anyway, hope everyone that’s gotten the demo is enjoying it. Hate to hear that so many are having trouble downloading/installing it. :(

  3. J. Calico says:

    still works for the demo in getting it to recognize some cards…. tried it on another system that has the fiasco of having a rebranded card but essentially using the original drivers.

  4. Amethyst says:

    Maybe if it wouldn’t crash every time I opened it, I would enjoy it. I can’t even play it! After it gets to the warning about inappropriate content, it’ll sit there then windows will pretend to check for a solution before exiting out entirely.

  5. Ingrid says:

    Dear Nothing!

    Stop being so depressive!

    Just uninstall Origin and then install it again. Tadaaa now it should work!

    Glad to have helped!

    1. cynth says:

      well i tried re installing it but it still doesnt work -.-

    2. Nothing says:

      Well, let’s see… if I uninstall and reinstall Origin, I also have to uninstall and reinstall many gigabytes of other games, since I do not just play the Sims games… so no, that’s not an acceptable solution. It also happens that many others have attempted uninstalling and reinstalling Origin and it doesn’t work for them, either.

      Repair install, uninstall/reinstall of the Sims demo, does not work. Fiddling with antivirus settings does not work. Compatibility mode does not work.

      I can live without Sims 4. In fact it will save me money to do so. Am more interested in Dragon Age Inquisition anyway, so I can hold off and maybe buy Sims 4 on sale at some point, if they ever make the demo able to run.

      1. Uninstalling Origin does not uninstall your games, as long as you don’t delete the whole folder. It only uninstalls the client. I’ve done it multiple times myself.

  6. Andrea says:

    where do i find demo code at?

    1. Carmella says:

      Go on origin and go to free games-demos and betas-Sims 4 demo

      1. ANDREA says:

        I installed but it’s asking for code

  7. Just Joel :3 says:

    can someone help me?? The gallery isn’t working properly. When ever i try to comment, upload, favourite, it just says “server error, could not process request. And also it says that there are no players online. when i go to community on the gallery it says “no results found” Can someone please help me, reply to me if u have the same problem

    1. Stefy says:

      I have problems with the gallery too. If I ever try to comment or even look closer at a household the demo crashes and says “The Sims 4 Create a sim demo has stopped working”.
      The other problem, not technical, of the gallery, I have seen a completely naked Bella Goth in the gallery. Ew!

  8. Beth says:

    Mine keeps going back to 20% while it’s down loading, I’ve almost been at it for 24 hours..

    1. zinhle13 says:

      same here, when it gets to 35% it goes back to 15%. and the download is so slow

      1. Delly says:

        Mine has just went back from 54% to 18% D:
        I wonder If there’s a wyto fix it :S

        1. Potato says:

          I have the same prob, but I found a KIND of a solution that may or may not work for you. It didn’t work for me and its still not moving, but it helped move it a bit :S
          What you need to do is: When it reaches a higher percent then what it started at, pause the download, restart origin, unpause, and it’ll keep moving. Repeat this over and over. I managed to get up to 64% before it went back to 15 percent :I

  9. Apple user says:

    well how disappointing that its only for windows

    1. Alonsy says:

      Duh, they haven’t even announced when they’d start making it for Mac, what makes you think that the demo would be available?

  10. xC0C0A says:

    Oh well, sucks for yall.
    Apple sucks anyway.
    – Team Windows

    1. Unown says:

      Really windows gets slow after like 2 weeks of having it but Apple is fast and dosn’t get slow an drearily gets a virus

    2. redirocks says:

      currently running sims 4 on ultra settings on my shitty 27 inch high def mac… lmao

  11. Waffle says:

    I just downloaded it, and then I turn on it, there shows ea, maxi, then the sims 4 create a sim demo, and nothing, I’m seriously waiting for hour now. Is it not loading, or I’m that dumb, that even don’t know how turn on it?

  12. Mine doesn’t work. It will be a sucessful download, but when click play or click on the shortcut, nothing happens. It wont load up. I dont get any erroe messages, it just won’t play. I’ve restarted my computer, I’ve uninstalled the game AND origin then reinstalled them, I’ve made sure nothing is blocking/causing conflict but it still doent work.

    1. ladyschrei says:

      Check your antivirus, mine did the same thing. Turns out my antivirus set it as “unknown files” and I had to make them “trusted files” before it would play.

      1. I’ve made the files trusted but it still isn’t working ?

        1. Rachel says:

          Same TT helppppp

  13. Luke says:

    so let me get this straight, i preordered sims4 but i still can’t play the demo? i dont have a product code or whatever..

    1. Carmella says:

      Go on origin- Store- Free games- Demos and Betas- The sims 4 demo

  14. Patsy walls says:

    My Sims 4 downloaded in a few minutes, but I am only able to choose a Sims, I can’t change anything about the Sims, then when I try to save it, it changes the Sims that i had the first time. I have been playing Sims, i,2, and 4. I thought that I was going to be blown away, but I am very disappointed. I hope that the expansions will really make it worth me uninstall my 14 sSms 3 games from my computer. :(

  15. Cos says:

    at first when i opened it, it said that i miss the msvcp120.dll and after i used the dll-files fixer to fix it, i open it again and my mouse just spins and nothing shows up.Anyone knows how to fix this?

    1. catloverplayer says:

      Try uninstalling and reinstalling.

  16. Daryl says:

    I tried to run the demo but it just said unable to start as it can’t be run with the video card in my system (AMD Radeon HD6570) is this for real? T_T

  17. val says:

    well this was a waste of time and hope

  18. $IM$4:/ says:

    I think i’m going to stick with sims 3. Where the hair is less blocky, there are toddlers, pools … Sims 4 is not that great as i thought it would be

  19. catloverplayer says:

    Hey everyone just thought I’d let you know you can find me in the gallery now. Just look under my origin name catloverplayer. I have 4 or 5 uploads and one of which is my simself. Alexis next time I go into the demo I’ll follow you.

    I did see some issues.

    I can see how many followers I have but it won’t let me see who they are,

    When you upload to the community it seems there is no way to delete your creations from the gallery online.

    You can only pick a watch to be worn on the right arm not the left.

    1. catloverplayer says:

      Hey were the testers. :lol:

  20. Chloe says:

    I downloaded and played the demo once. now i need a product code.

  21. Anne Onie Moss says:

    Why is it asking me for a product key for a demo?

  22. Gabija_Sereikaite says:

  23. mel says:

  24. Juliet says:

    Can someone pleasee help me urgently because i tried to download the demo of sims 4 so hooray it worked then i click play it says sum stupid thing about my memory video thingy..


  25. Stevey says:

    Does the sims 4 create a sim demo feature all the clothi. Hair and other content from the create a sim in the full game? If so, that is really disappointing to me.

    1. ChickenNotSoLittle says:

      I don’t think so,but yeah your right if it does include all the sims 4 clothes that horrible

    2. It has most but not all of the hair or clothing.

  26. Charmaine says:

    How do you get the flipping thing to play I preorder through origin and it’s like a ghost app nothing loads up. No introduction, no nothing, grrrr….

  27. DBrook says:

    Everytime I try to click download nothing pops up. Is anyone else having this same problem? it wont even open anything.

  28. Erica says:

    Mine has been down loading for a day and half….why does it take this long? :(

    1. It may be your internet speed. You can have high speed but it can still run slow at times. Also it could be an issue with origin.

      I still use the cas demo when I don’t want to go into game to make a sim.

  29. Pepperpuppy11 says:

    How do I go in to playing the game because I made the stuff and then I have no idea how you play it
    Is the sims4 like that to???? Plz answer

    1. ChickenNotSoLittle says:

      If you finished installing it, go on to Origin and click play. and Nope The Sims 4 is not like that at all. I hope you don’t have any problems with your game!
