Origin won't install

★★★ Newbie

I don't even remember uninstalling it, but something happened. When I try to install it I get a pop up that says my computer can't find the file. Please help

On your machine, try running Origin directly from this default location:

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin\Origin.exe

 

If that works as expected, just right click that file and then 'Send to Desktop'.

 

If that does not go as planned, search your drive for Origin.exe and try running it from wherever it is.

 

If you cannot find the file at all, reinstalling Origin get you going.

 

Thanks.
