Could you please do a Clean Boot and then run a repair on the game (right click the game tile in Origin client).

It is possible that NxCharacter.dll is still missing from your folder after being quarantined by your anti-virus. In this case you should be able to retrieve it from the quarantine folder. Also try to install Physloader.dll.

I followed that link and installed the program, but I'm still getting the error message. The file is not in my antivirus quarantine folder.

Hello

 

I recieved the same error?

 

Did a fresh restart and then performed an update and a repair twice and it did not fix the error.

 

Like my other games I have Origan and the game saved on my HDD which is my storage D: drive. I run my OS and drivers on a Primary Drive C: an SSD.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Can you try manually running the installer, and choosing to repair?

 

The installer, PhysX-9.12.0613-SystemSoftware.msi, can be found in your dragon age install folder,  at Dragon Age\__Installer\physx\redist

Shadowfang, what anti-virus do you use? Is it an option to temporarily disable it and run the PhysX install again?
