I've received zero other reports about this dll error so I assume that it is still related to your system. However, I can have it looked at as well if we are unable to resolve this error for you.

 

In the meantime, try the following:

 

  • Uninstall Origin, then download and install the latest version. Run the installer and client itself as administrator.
  • In the C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin folder, right-click vcredist_x64.exe and vcredist_x86.exe and run them as administrator.

Hi,

 

This error message is caused by a missing VC++ package on your computer. Please download and install the packages from the Microsoft website:

 

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2977003

 

Please download and install both x86 and x64 versions for the 2015, 2013, 2012 and 2010 versions. Restart your computer once that is done. If any of these versions are already installed then repair the installation instead.

OK we'll try the reinstall and whatnot and see what happens.


If it matters, it wasn't doing this error before a recent update (either Origin or windows, can't say which). Beta channel or normal makes no difference.

restarted a few times without the error.. so for now it appears to be working correctly. If it changes or if the error returns, I'll update again.
