September So I bought the sims 4, and it automatically started downloading from origin once I put the code in. I didn't realize that apparently there's a way to install it with just the disks I bought the hard copy in store until it had already downloaded. My issue is that it has finally successfully downloaded took nearly a day and a halfbut it has now been "installing" for the past 4 hours.
I really didn't want to cancel the installation after waiting so long for it to finally get past the downloading point, but even after I caved and restarted my computer the only way I could shut down originwhen I opened it again it was still "installing". Does anyone know why it is taking so long to install even after it said it was done downloading? Also, if I give up waiting another day, does anyone know how to stop an installation on origin?
I tried exiting out, restarting my computer, but once I log back on to origin it still says the game is "installing". Go to Solution. December Just going to throw this option out there because this is what I did and now the game is fingers crossed We bought the digital version and downloaded through Origin. The download itself took like 8 hours. However, it is important to disable any "Sleep modes" you have because the download will pause every time your computer goes to sleep. The installation part is what really annoyed me.
It took, literally, two days. And that was without any progress actually listed in the status bar. Would just scroll a pattern in the progress bar and say "Installing". In addition, I didn't even have the option to pause or stop as those buttons were not even lit up.

Me too. Message 1 of 7 2, Views. Reply 0. Accepted Solution.June Haven't been able to download a game through the disk or origin. When trying to install with origin, it gets to the finalizing stage and freezes at 0h 0m 0s.

I have merged your posts in the Origin Forum, if need you can also raise a ticket via contacting a game advisor per this link. Press Enter and a Temp folder should open. You can delete all files found in this folder, and if any files are in use, they can be skipped. My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. I'm a gamer like you, trying to help you i'm not an EA employee.
I'm having this problem now too. I've done all the file clearing, administer changes, updates, re-downloading, and fresh installing of Origin. Nothing seems to help.
Now I'm wondering if it's just something on their end that might clear up in time, maybe with the next patch. I'll keep trying every so often for now. Fingers crossed.August Go to Solution.

August - last edited August I began downloading BF3 a couple of days ago. I did what was mentioned in this thread. The clock says that I should expect another 10 hours to complete this download. I really hope that this does NOT happen again. The reason dowload pauses itself is because pc goes on standyby mode. Leave your pc for the whole night or day and it wont go to standby mode thus enabling it to download.
Yeah yeah Everybody suggests the same. Nothing works. Origin has it's own mind February It really does. This is what makes me made, they act like its not behaving insanely. I think it's to make it seem like it downloads faster than it does. I work in data.

April For me it still didn't get fixed after i cleared cache. Well at least did the trick for me. If you have The Sims 3 app in your finder or on your dashboard, quit the origin app, then try clicking on The Sims 3 app. This worked for me. February - last edited February.
