How to remove Anthem (Demo) to prevent useless update ?

★★★★ Novice

Ok guys, I'm posting this since I'm tired of this anoying issue. 

 

I tried Anthem (demo) then I bought the game in a shop. After adding the serial in Origin, the full game started to download and install. Everything was fine so I removed the demo from my library. Unfortunatly, everytime Anthem is getting an update, there is also an update for the demo. How to remove this Demo for good ?

 

You can see the attached file, screenshot show this boring issue.

 

Please "help" me... cause I really don't see were to clean this. Thank you Standard smile

Strange issue.

 

If you buy the game it should replace the demo for the full game.

Do you still have playtime on the Demo and is it playable.

Just leave it open till the timer runs out.

 

Something else you can try is clearing Origin cache.

This could also solve the issue.

...worked for a couple of days, still have an update for the Anthem (Demo) whenever there is and Anthem update. Even when the first full game update is downloaded and installed, the Demo keep going for an update. So boring.
