I can't download Origin

★ Novice

Hellooo! I've had Origin for about a year or so. It was always a little bit slow and sometimes my game would just fail and quit. I don't know if it's an important information... but my sister got a new computer and we're playing the same game on the same Origin account. It had been a while since my sister and I played a game on Origin on our first computer. Today I tried opening it, and for some reason it was very slow and my game kept crashing. So I stopped playing and closed Origin. Then about an hour later I tried to open Origin but it just wouldn't. I would click multiple times on the logo, on my desktop or in finder but nothing worked. So I tried to delete Origin and download it again. But I can't download it. When I'm downloading it with Chrome, it tells me "Failed - File incomplete" and when I download it with Safari it tells me that the network connection was lost. I really don't know what to do.... Please help? Angel

https://download.dm.origin.com/origin/live/OriginSetup.exe

 

I found a fix. Someone in a different thread got this link, its for PC, its an older version of Origin. instead of OriginThinSetup.exe its OriginSetup.exe.

It worked for me. I've been trying to fins a fix for 6+ hrs.

Oh my God, I could not be more thankful for you right now. I've done EVERYTHING short of a complete system reboot, because I was UTTERLY frustrated. You're a beast, man, thank you!
