  1. If the above doesn't work try these other solutions:
    Watch this video for a tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKzzVoAnJWo&feature=youtu.be

    1. Try restarting your PC after the error. It may resolve the problem.
    2. Run "DXSETUP" as administrator.
    3. Run Origin as Administrator.
    4. Reinstall Origin
    5. In Apex settings Game Properties UNCHECK "Enable Origin in Game for Apex Legends".
    6. Disable anti-malware
    7. Try uninstalling 2015 vc++ redist version in your PC's control panel(Go start and search control panel, click uninstall programs), then let the game download.
    8. If that doesn't work try uninstall every vc++ redist version then reinstall them. 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2017. Restart when the 2017 installer says to.

  2. it keeps saying vc++ error I managed to learn the sp1 2010 vc++ was causing it but when I try to open it keeps saying (extracting to) the data passed to a system call is too small

  3. The problem I have is I downloaded it onto the wrong disk/driver/whateveritscalled and I moved it to the other one. It now said only 27% was downloaded when previously there was 60%. It has now finished downloading and I can't launch it and the app isn't anywhere. I can't uninstall it either but it takes up space on my pc,

  4. I had this issue trying to copy apex from external drive to my PC. It got stuck on downloading at 54%. I looked everywhere for a fix. As i was about to give up i stumbled upon this video and it solved the issue! BIG THANX!!!

  5. i don't have the "origin games" file. please help me cause i played it before and it worked perfectly. when i go to apps & features in the windows settings it says that apex is downloaded but "some files are missing or corrupt" and i tried to download apex again but when it gets to 46% it just falls back to 0 and then it says "download failed". If anybody could help me to fix this issue that would be much appreciated.

  6. so i specifically made an ea account to play apex, this didn't work at all and i deleted all of the files and left those three and it still had an error while downloading…is there any other way to download this game other than from origin?

    edit: i just deleted the game and sent a strongly worded message to ea, i'm just gonna stick to console
