Re: origin will not open!


Are you getting any error messages ? DId you download the latest version of Origin from the web ? Do you have admin rights on your computer ?

Good Luck and Happy Simmin

No error messages. I try to download the update but it will not complete, or it completes within five seconds and nothing happens.
I am not sure if I have admin rights, how do I know ?
