I got some error, not exactly sure what it was. But it was something along the lines of this application isn't designed to run on this system. It wouldn't let me open the config files even, so I'm back down to windows 7 for now. Pinged Origin Customer Support yesterday, and they don't support windows 8. But the guy I spoke said he would forward the request to his seniors.

Try starting up Origin as administrator while running Windows 8. That worked for me. Before I got to the logo screen and then the program stopped working...

Managed to get it working... But now I have no commentary... 

 

From within Origin I clicked to remove Fifa. it took me to the windows remove programs screen. I removed it.

 

Renamed my Fifa 13 folder in my documents

 

Downloaded and installed Fifa 13 again. Now it would start and I could play a match.

Commentary is not working, but I  guess its because my origin language was on Dutch when I installed. Gonna try and put it to english and repair installation.

 

Just to inform EA. I upgraded a windows 7 install to windows 8 pro and kept all me apps and settings

After that I refreshed windows 8 whilst letting it remove all prgrams. After that I repaired fifa from Origin. It didn't start. Above steps got it working, but now I dont have commenatary!
