@idrivefast90 Hey, have you tried the repair? To perform it right click the game panel and you should have the option to Repair the game. 

If this has no effect, can you try restarting your system with a Clean Boot and check again?

I am also having this issue...Wish somebody would do something, this is insane that I pay money for a game and cannot play it whenever I like.

It's 2016 and the game has been out for years, why does it need to run that even? I just installed the game through Origin like they want me to and I still have to repair the files? I shouldn't have to do that on a fresh install. Come on, EA. Get it together, focus more on making * work how it's supposed to and less on happily taking people's money.

Hi blackwolf069. Just so we can get a good idea of what's still helpful for folks affected by this, what steps did you take to get this fixed on your end?

I'm assuming the repair, but I'd rather verify. Thanks. Standard smile

I had the same issue as everyone else.  I did a repair, and all is well now.
