Can't Find .exe Files in Origin Games Folder

★★★★ Novice

Hi,

 

I need to find my Dragon Age Origins exe file so I can up the RAM limit on it because it keeps crashing. However, I cannot for the life of me find the exe file despite the game booting up fine. It is not in the Origin Games folder where games usually are and have no other idea where it could be.

@Sigtor Try having a look for a Dragon Age folder within your Program Files or Program Files (x86) folders.

its in a bit deeper folder in this game, some few games do this.
?:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Dragon Age\bin_ship

special if expansion or GOLD version, then game can do this, maybe a way they do to seperating Original game with Ultimated version.

I have a seperate HD for games, and cant find the Dragon Age folder, AT ALL... Why EA is so stupid as to not let up right click on the title and find a button that says 'Show File Location' is beyond me... The ONLY Dragon Age Folder that comes up, has nothing but Screenshots in it... Nothing else is saved in it.  This is getting ridiculously frustrating.

Hey @FormerMarine0821 can you take a look for the folder withing your Program Files or Program Files (x86) folders. 

 

If you have set the game to install in a certain location then you should be able to navigate there and in your downloaded files find the folder.
