Hi all,

I've had this issue and I thought I'd post what resolved it incase it helps anyone!  I tried deleting the config utility and repairing which a lot of other posts suggested (didn't work), tried messing with Coalesced.ini (didn't work), deleting the data dircectory (didn't work) and other stuff I can't even remember. The fix that did work for me is here http://answers.ea.com/t5/Mass-Effect-2/Mass-Effect-Trilogy-ME2-doesn-t-start-with-Origin-after-insta...

 

Specifically

 

"In binaries directory:
Rename MassEffect2.exe as MassEffect2Launcher.exe
Rename ME2Game.exe as MassEffect2.exe"

 

If I was to recommend anything to anyone, it would be to avoid the config utility (since this seems to be the culprit that cocked everything up for me).

Wow thanks for that, it works now. What a simple solution that EA is too lazy to implement.

I've been having issues starting my ME2 game with or without Origin (I run an HP Elitebook 8540w CAD Workstation with an i7 QUADCore, Nvidia QUADRO w/ CUDA) and,  I'm not tech savvy, but I just said "F" it and deleted my C:\Users\Owner\Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect 2 file and launched the game letting cloud sync it... seems to have worked... >>>>>>>>> But, I promise nothing!<<<<<<<<<<<<

Hi Everybody,

 

Before doing anything drastic, try reimporting saves through the config, then going offline in origin and launching ME2.  You can then exit, re online in origin, and everything works fine.  Worked the first time for me.

Bah nevermind. Seems someone found the problem and posted the fix. I missed it had been already posted.
