Re: Origin wont download/install

This is my first time with Origin. So I wanted to play the Sims 4 but I don't just wanna buy it without knowing exactly what Im paying for. I wanted to just just try it so I pressed the option to test it or what not. When I did that it added its self to "My Games" and when I wanted to launch it it had said that I needed to download Origin. Ive been at it for about 30 minutes now and every time I try to download Origin it keeps saying "The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCP140.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem" and "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem". This is really setting me off and I don't exactly know what to do, I really want to start playing but I can't because of this. What should I do?

Re: Origin wont download/install

@Brobowest and @GeneralWeeb_Nia  Those files are part of the 2015 VC++ runtimes, which Origin needs to install properly.  It's best to uninstall your current copies, if you have any, and then download new ones from Microsoft.  Hit Windows key-i, select Apps, scroll down to Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable, click on both the x86 and x64 entries (if you have them), and select Uninstall.  You can download new copies here. Be sure to install both the x86 and x64 versions.

Restart your computer, and try to install Origin again.

Re: Origin wont download/install

@JaejaeC7  When you click Download on the page I linked, you should be asked which versions you want.  Select the x86 and x64 versions, and they'll both download.  You can run the installers from your Downloads folder.

I'm having similar problems and this doesn't work for me. I had it on my computer months ago with no problems, then I had to factory reset my computer for a game which got rid of origin as well. Since then I have been unable to install origin again. At first I could click the button to start the process only to have an error message pop saying it couldn't find the file. Now it wont even do anything when clicking the download button.
