Origin installer does not open.

★★ Novice

I dont have Origin installed on pc to be clear.

It shows up on task manager, in details but does not open.

What ive tried:

Tried downloading older version of installer, no result.

Running installer after clean restart.

Reinstalling all of VC++ drivers.

Running it in safe mode.

Im about to format my hard drive just because of one game. Just yesterday installed it at my bro´s house.

On one article i read that there is a vc_redist installer in Origin installed folder that have helped some people with my issue, but i dont have Origin installed.

Any help/ideas would be appreciated!
