Go to Apex\__Installer\vc and install all the prerequisites from sub folders manually.

Might not be trivial, as for me it included manually uninstalling previous versions.

Once all three are installed - fully reinstall the game and should work. At least that is what did the trick for me.

This is the first problem i ran into though i am stuck at directx part right after at 38%, to fix the vc++ error uninstall both x86 and x64 2017 vc redists, as it tries to install the 2015 versions and when you have 2017 installed or install 2017 after it overrides 2015 versions since the versions are very similar.

That will fix your vc error

if u know how to fix the direct x june 2010 part (deleting cab files to make it pass without installing anything doesnt work for me) then please tell me

Alright boys what worked for me is to uninstall the visual c++ 2017 version aswell as the 2015 and 2010 version.

BUT i did not have the 2015 version and windows did not let me install it manualy since it said i already have it - i think this is because of the 2017 version. So uninstall this, (2015 if u have it) and 2010 version.

 

I did not restart the pc or origin client, i just pressed the conitnue button for download and after some processing it finished the whole download and installation process and now the game works just fine.

 

Edit: I could not uninstall the 2010 Version, since my PC did not find it, however said i have it installed i used this tool from microsoft in the link below: idk how but it could uninstall the 2010 version for me.
