I am also having lots of issues with Origin lately, for the past few days, none of the games wouldn't launch, not even the launcher itself was working, I had to access the launcher from google, and when I tried to open a game, it would ask me to open Origin, but whenever I said yes, it wouldn't open, it would just load and stop, it wouldn't work at all. If this issue could be solved then that would be great, because I have had this issue many times in the past, and it would usually fix itself, but this time it isn't. So if I could get some help, that would be great!

Sorry to hear that you are having issues @Aussy47.

 

Can you try the following @Aussy47 :

  • Right mouse click on the origin shortcut and select open file location
  • Find origin.exe
  • Right click on origin.exe, select properties and then open the compatibility tab. 
  • Check Override the high DPI and then hit system from the drop-down before saving and exiting

Let me know how you get on.

I am having the same issue. I have tried similar solutions that were offered. I can't even get support via chat or phone call for this issue. Posted suggestions have not resolved it. Not happy Frown

Thank you! I got the game to open, turns out it was running in the background in my task manager. If anyone else has this issue, then try right clicking the windows button in the bottom left of your screen, doing this will open some new options, then click on task manager. My Origin file said it was running in the background, making me unable to open it, so I ended the task, and the issue was solved. Opening the file location would have been much easier, since it took me a little while to find out it was even running in the first place, if this issue ever happens again, then I will be sure to follow the steps that I have been given. Thank you so much Darko! You were a huge help!

Re: Origin wont launch ANY GAME

@nvnascar42  Since you're on a Mac, please run the Origin tool for macOS.  It automatically clears Origin's cache and deletes a few other files as well.
