Can't download Origin client

I recently purchased The Sims 3 because of the Labor day sale and when i purchased it, the reciept thing said i had to download origin in order to play it. I thought i had downloaded it before, but i guess i was wrong and i pressed download. When i pressed it a link opened to another page which continoulsy loads and nothing ever downloads. I would like to beleive that i didnt waste 15 dollars and would really like to play the Sims, someone please help.

Re: Can't download Origin client

I also can't download origin. The other links on here did not work forme either.  I have an iPad 4 and it keeps telling me safari can't open.  Does it not work for macs?

No, Origin is not for macs or Ipads.

Good Luck and Happy Simming

i cannot download origin i tried using the solution on this page but it doesnt work either.  I'm not getting any errors but it just wont do anything when i click download or when i go to the link in your posts.  I am running a pc with windows 7 if that helps.
