@EA_DarkoInstead of copy pasting generic answers please read the issue. People can't finish downloading Origin.Your solution is junk. Here is the error I get from the installer when it fails to update. And no, it's not updating my already completed installation. I hd to use an old installer just to get to the point of updating because Origin thinsetup is a piece of hot garbage.

FYI I have just installed Steam, Epic, and Battle.net with ZERO problems. The issue, which is not my first with Origin, is a poorly coded program that breaks access to games that have been paid for. This is getting ridiculous.
I've done all this and still can't do the initial download to even start a game. This is ridiculous. I've been trying to download and get this started for 2 days. The closest I got was the origin log in. But it kept saying I was offline. Then that even stopped working and kept "updating" now it's trying to update and fails. And when I try to download the originthin it says its missing dll. I've don't everything that ae has suggested in each step. And I've done other processes as well. This is just stupid now. Im about to return the game. $40 bucks and can't even play. I'm running Windows 8.1 everything else is up to date. I've downloaded other games in the past. It's just this origin crap that's screwing absolutely everything up
Thinclient setup spins for a sec then no dice.
Reboot as Local Admin no dice.
Run As Administrator no dice.
Found an OLD installer that did install, but during the update of the app it errors out "unable to update please download client" and provides this link:
Services Tab>check Hide MS Services>uncheck anything left>reboot
Run downloaded OriginSetup
i'm having a similar problem. I'm trying to install origin from this link: https://www.origin.com/usa/en-us/store/download and after it's done installing, I try to open the installer and it says it's missing "MSVCP140.dll" and "VCRUNTIME140.dll" and that reinstalling the program may help. i've tried reinstalling it from the same link, logging in and then downloading it and it gives me the same error every single time.
...missing "MSVCP140.dll" and "VCRUNTIME140.dll"...
If Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable (x64) and Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable (x86) are already installed on your computer, you would probably be better off uninstalling them before proceeding with the steps below. If both are installed, uninstall both. If only one is installed, uninstall it. If neither are installed, proceed with (re)installing them as described below.
Go to https://support.microsoft.com/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads. Download both vc_redist.x64.exe and vc_redist.x86.exe linked under the heading "Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019" and install them. Once they are installed, retry installing Origin.
