No luck. It's bizarre. I tried it on my laptop, it works fine on that! Integrated graphics isn't that great even for a 10 year old game, though.
That is true.
Try to take ownership of the "Bioware" folder as described above.
If that don't works, create a new Windows user account (Administrator, and don't use local Special characters in the user name, use only characters from the ASCII table)
OMG! It was Ransomware protection. I had turned it off before, but mast have been reenabled for some reason. I was trying to take ownership of the folder and kept getting denied. I couldn't figure out why, so I went back to step 1. Now it's all working, I can install mods and everything. Sorry for all the trouble!
NP, good to hear that it works now.

@charlesmartin82; Ok, then I'm stumped. That's the only reason I know of that consistently causes this.
But glad you got things sorted!
