What does "Try flushing the DNS and checking your proxy settings first." mean?

It means follow the instructions to flush the DNS and check your proxy settings first from the thread I linked to.

Did you try every single suggestion in the help thread I linked to?

Not really sure that’s the best solution as it’s not fixing the issue in macOS but at least you can play again Standard smile

Did you try every suggestion in the Mac Origin thread? I’ve not come across anyone before who can’t get Origin to work after exhausting all possibilities listed. The issue must be on your Mac, possibly conflicting software or damaged OS files.

I've had this same issue before.  I cleared my cache files, restarted my computer, uninstalled & reinstalled Origin, everything.  The simplest solution worked: I Cmd+Right clicked & ran Origin as Administrator, and it worked perfectly.  I know you decided to use BootCamp to run Windows - I've done that & couldn't get over the annoyance of having to run a program within a program within a program; it's bad enough having to run Origin to be able to play The Sims; I don't want to have to use ANOTHER program to run Origin....but that's just me.  

Anyway, I hope I helped.
