Cannot install older games through Origin client; Steam client works.
The specific errors I get are, in order, the one about directX and then, when I go and delete everything but the requisite 3 files, the one about the vc redist. I haven't gotten further than this because by this time I am ready to throw my computer out a window, and the medical aid I would need following such an event would obviate any possibility of playing any games further.
The games I am trying to install are: Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2 (Digital Deluxe), Mass Effect 3 (digital Deluxe), Dragon Age: Origins (digital deluxe), and Dragon Age II (digital deluxe).
In order to verify that the issue was on the Origin client side, I purchased and installed Mass Effect from Steam, as well, and the game launches and plays just fine through the Steam client. I do not want to have to repurchase another four games in order to get the basic content that I've already purchased through Origin.
