I have the same problem. It was working just fine from the release until today. Now, when I click "play" button, it's going grey and then it's orange again with no effect. I can't start the game. Please help.

It's failed or borked vcredist installation.

Go into your game folder and reinstall those all vc redistributables:

Those are in in the folder:

...\Mass Effect Andromeda\__Installer\vc

 

In case it still won't budge, download and install also vc redist 2017 from here:

Others... People please, details, we need details. Not just "it's not running". Please.
