Re: Stuck in library and cant't remove after origin access expired

Hi @treboRxGod 

 

I merged your post with the thread on the free game.

 

Could you try the suggestion on the first page (namely the private window one) and also try going through this link: https://www.origin.com/store/the-sims/the-sims-4/offer-selection

 

if that all doesn't work, try adding it to your Wishlist and getting it through there.

So i'm able to download it, the download goes through and everything, but once it gets to "finalize" i get an error that says "Error: The VC++ runtime redistributable package was not installed successfully. setup cannot continue. (1638)". i've looked on different forums and deleted the apps it says interferes with this. i'm desperate at this point and i just want to download the game.

Hi @treboRxGod 

 

can you not right click on any of them ? I'm not sure how to remove them so you might wanna ask in the Origin Access forum here: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Origin-Access/bd-p/origin-access-en

 

Hi @sammxee 

 

Please try the suggestions here: https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/origin/origin/your-vc-runtime-package-has-not-installed-correctly-err...

 

If those don't work, please open your own thread.

Select the drop down next to 'Get the Game' and add the title to your wishlist; then follow the link that pops up and choose to get the game from there. This will add it to your library.

I already own Sims 4 but I'm trying to gift it to a friend but as soon as I try that all I get is the option to buy the deluxe edition??

 

The person I'm trying to gift it to tried getting it but also got the same option even though they don't actually own the game.

Anyway to fix this so they can get it?

I don't think you can gift this.

 

Has your friend tried to add it through the WL or any of the other tips on the first page ?
