VC++ and .dll errors with Origin

While running Origin, if you receive .dll errors, such as your VC++ runtime package has not installed correctly when you are trying to install your game, try to follow these steps.

First of all, you have to make sure that your Windows is updated to the latest version. If you have any pending Windows Updates, install them first. As they could be the reason behind the errors.

Reinstall Security Updates

If your Windows is updated to the latest version there might be some problems with the specific security update that needs to be repaired or reinstalled.

  • Go to your game’s installation path, usually C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Name Of The Game.
  • Then open the _Installer folder.
  • After that open the vc¬†folder. If you only find one folder in there, open it and move on to the next step. If there are more than one folders, open the older one first. The folders are named by years, so if you see a vc2013 and a vc2015 folder, open vc2013 first. Follow the next two steps for the older folder, then repeat those two steps for the newer one.
  • Open the redist folder.
  • In redist, find both the x86 and x64 versions of vcredist.exe. Run each to install.

After all these steps, your game should run smoothly without any error.
