Hi Microsoft support have tried that before, and I have just tried it again, no luck. In your experience would you say its a Microsoft issue or a game issue?

Please try to run Origin as Administrator and start the game from Origin Game Library. See if that works.

Edit:

Just to make sure You did run both the x86 and x64 installers from both of the directories from the image I posted earlier?

I have already run the x86 and x64 installers and ran Origin as Administrator and still, the error is not gone.

Hi, it worked! Thank you, my daughter is over the moon.  The 3rd link fixed it, and I didnt have to run SFC/scannow.
