The only file I had in this folder was 71171.dlf, but deleting that one did not change anything. I had a chat with the support yesterday aswell and they told me to manually uninstall origin, which I did, but the problem still exists.

Does anyone have another idea?

And this is NOT solved, many people here still have this problem.

On the pop up that says "Could Not Activate" theres a place ot put in your product Key..

 

under that it says "Login as a different user" click on here and use your Origin ID to login via this 'pop up' this is not part of Origin it's the pop up for the activation. 

Once I logged into the pop up I was able to activate it, even though I wasn't a different user..

After logging in and out of my Origin account several times, it finally decided to work for me.  I made no other changes.

 

If you are getting the same error, try logging in and out.
