DA:O Invalid license. Reason code=Missing DLL:{NxCharacter.dll} Error: 0x7E.

★★★★ Apprentice

So i recently started to play the free version of DA:O and i got hooked on it. so after few days of playng the game i bought the DA:O-Ultimate edition.
The game worked fine until few days later when it started to crash time-to-time for no apparent reason, thus i went on origin and right-clicket on DA:O-Ultimate edition to repair it. 
After the repair the game would not start and only givign me this error message " Invalid license. Reason code=Missing DLL:{NxCharacter.dll} Error: 0x7E."
I wen to the bin_ship folder and that .dll file was there. i tried running the game on admin-rights and compatibility mode for windows-7 and windows-xp servicepack 3 as sugested by EA, those didn't help. So i tried to repair fix it again, it didn't work. I uninstalled and re-installedit, didn't work.
I called EA-customer support, they said to delete origins programdata folder and restart the pc with anti-virus off and re-install. did that, didn't work. They said to call them back if it didn't work but it's weekend so i was trying to fix it my self.
I went online to find fixes to the problem. Re-isntalled c++ visual collor thing, Physx,  i did a clean-boot and tried to repair and didn't work, so i did a thurow clean of all traces of Dragon Age after un-installing it. Clean booted again and tried to isntall it again, that didn't work.
Please help me! non of the other fixes on the EA-forums or other forums helped.
(before i did all this i updated my drivers)

My PC Specs:
Operating System: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz (8 CPUs), ~4.0GHz
Memory: 16384MB RAM
DirectX Version: 12
Graphic Card: 2x GTX-970

Thanks in advance! :D

Again, you need the latest PhysX - http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx-9.16.0318-drive​​r.html

 

That is the right version, not the one provided by ItsBilbo and others.

 

If you're reading this at some later date, go to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx and click on the 'NVIDIA PhysX System Software' link to download the latest version, or try http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx_system_software.html

Ok after fidelling around the file folders i came to an solution.
Go to Program Files (in my case program files x86) > Origin Games > Dragon Age > __installer > physx > redist 
there you should see and Phys-x install file, install it, after that the game should work.
