Qt platform plugin error?

★★ Newbie

keep getting the following error when attempting to launch games:

 

This aplication failed to start because it could not find the Qt platform plugin "windows" in "".

available platform plugins are: minimal, offscreen, windows.

reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

 

 

Please note that I have reinstalled origin 5 times now and reinstalled my games too and this error still persists. really confused on what this error is or how to fix itFrown

just brought titanfall 2 from steam but whenever i try to launch the game thru steam and the origin prompts"This application failed to start because it could not find or load the Qt platform plugin "windows" in "". Available platform plugins are: minimal, offscreen, windows.

I assumed it was something wrong with the client.

I tried to reinstall the game and origin client itself (from the website download and the steam auto-setup which comes with the game) didnt work.

 

here's the dxdiag:

Hi @RaidSnake222

 

I saw a similar report of this same issue not long ago. In that case it turned out there was an issue with an AutoDesk program that was causing this error to come up with Origin. Do you have any AutoDesk software installed on your PC?
