I can't install FIFA 14

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Hey fellas!

 

I've downloaded FIFA 14 through Origin and it doesn't work to install it when I'm trying, The bar goes to 20% then finishes at 100% after some while but still I can't run the game, tried to do this step several times without it getting to work.

 

I tried to delete FIFA 14 in Origin Games and uninstall origin and install it again then downloading Fifa 14 and trying to install it again but same problems... anyone has any clue or can help me? also I don't have the Origin Cloud activated when trying (cuz someone told me to turn it off when it didn't work the first time)

Sincerely, pyth.

Yes! I got it to work :D I will post the fix here:

 

The problem -- sloppy registry key creation. 

The solution -- 

- run regedit 

- navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE 
- SOFTWARE 
-Wow6432Node 
-EA Sports

-FIFA 14
Enter the folder FIFA 14

You need the following 4 entries on the right side of the screen, in addition to the (Default) one, all of them are String type (REG_SZ) -- just right click out there and create any missing ones. 

GDFBinary, REG_SZ, C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\FIFA 14\GDFBinary_en_US.dll
Install Dir, REG_SZ, C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\FIFA 14\
Locale, REG_SZ, en_US 
DisplayName, REG_SZ, SimCity Closed Beta 

(Be very careful of the syntax -- there is a space before the (x86), and there is no space in "FIFA 14"


Close regedit. 

That's it, go back into the Origin app, run Install, and this time when it's done you'll see a message that the game is ready to play. 

I hope this helps some people.[/quote]
