Hey @didox123az2

 

You might have a problem with missing/corrupted Microsoft Visual C++ package. Since we're talking about ME3, I suspect VC++ 2010.

 

 

Could you try to download the required packages from here (x64) and here (x86), then go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Mass Effect 3\__Installer\vc\vc2008sp1\redist and replace the files there with the ones, which you've downloaded.

 

Let me know if that helped! Fingers crossed

Try to open both files, which you've replaced, and choose a repair option. Also remember to launch Origin as admin.
