OriginThinSetup.exe Won't Open (MSCVP140.dll / VCRUNTIME140.dll not found)

★ Novice

Hey! I can't seem to get OriginThinSetup.exe to run. Every time I do, I get the following error messages: "The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCP140.dll was not found." and "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140.dll was not found."

 

I've tried downloading both of these things separately and putting them on my computer to no avail. All the help I can get is appreciated!

Hi @AlfredoAidan

Try installing or reinstalling Microsoft Visual C: https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads

Let me know if that works Standard smile

@CarbonCarl I tried uninstalling and reinstalling MSVCP using the link twice with resetting, the error still popped up.

@AlfredoAidan
Make sure the Version of Origin Installer is actually up to date. I've seen this exact issue before, it was because I had the wrong Version of Origin Installer (outdated).

If still no resolution, then tell us what your System Specs are.

@EA_Barry I had the same problem. THIS WAS THE SOLUTION.. i just kept working with the 64 bit over and over again. Uninstalling and reinstalling. Installed the 32 bit version and the installer immediately worked. THANK YOU.
