How to fix Origin install errors on a Windows computer?

  2. For example, if your previous installation was in C:\Programs Files (x86)\ Origin folder, try to move the new installation to any other partition.
  3. First, create a subfolder named Origin in other D:\ or E:\ drive.
  4. Run the Origin installer.
  5. Instead of selecting a default installation path, click the Browse button and select D:\Origin or E:\Origin partition to install the Origin client.
  6. After the installation has been completed, launch the client and check if it reads the game data that is saved in C:\ drive.

If the issue persists, simply create a new folder named Origin in C:\ProgramFiles (x86) and select it as the installation path during Origin client install.

Clear Origin Data Cache 

  1. Make sure you have closed any open origin installer.
  2. Open the Task Manager and close any process that is related to the Origin client.
  3. Press Windows Key + R, type %ProgramData%, and click OK.
  4. In this folder, you will find a folder called LocalContent. You need to delete all the other folders and file except LocalContent folder.
  5. If you accidentally delete the LocalContent folder, open Recycle Bin and restore it.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin.
  2. Now locate the OriginThinSetupInternal.exe.
  3. Right-click on the file and select Delete.
  4. Now, try to install the Origin client again and check if the Origin error code 10.0 is resolved.

  2. Lower Screen Resolution for Display Settings.

3. Origin error code 20.2

Check If you have sufficient Disk Space
