Default Re: Origin will not start

Make sure your Microsoft Visual C++ is up to date.

Do you have UAC turned off? If so, try turning it on and then starting Origin up. There seems to be some permissions issues, probably due to the web-based UI, when UAC is turned off especially if you have a set up like mine where your OS is on an SDD and you're installing games onto a secondary HDD.
