    Default Origin Update broke Origin.exe help???

    so...after updating origin to the latest, during the update installation, I get two errors while trying to update origin. 'Cannot write to file origin.exe' or something along those lines.

    tried uninstalling it, rebooting, then reinstalling origin completely. that part works fine...but again, first thing it tells me when i start up origin is that there is an update. I run the update and then the same problems occur. After ignoring the errors, I can't run origin at all. Help?

    found a similar thread here relating to the problem, but their suggested fix does not work either.

    please help as Im really heated right now trying to get origin to work after purchasing crysis 2 due to the origin 50% off spring sale.

    Baka suggests trying to reinstall and making sure it's ran as administrator this time ._.

    Otherwise, retry what they say and using the old installer?

    If all else fails

    Then throw cakes at EA's headquarters

    i swear...origin is the most useless pile of crap. after 5 hours of uninstalling and reinstalling it and other troubleshooting...it FINALLY decides to work, only to receive 'The origin network could not be reached blah blah blah' upon trying to log in. -_-

    edit: and NOW it finally works after yet another 5 uninstall/reinstalls. ffs EA fix your pile of poo.

    Diablo is also not pleased with this. I have over 40 games on steam and it works (near) perfectly...

    Quick question: I receive the same error. When you uninstall and reinstall, I'm assuming it keeps all your games? I haven't tried to fix this problem as I don't want to download and reinstall everything...

    Origin < Steam.

    I really.. really hate having two providers here. I liked steam just fine.. Greed Sucks.
