I'm having this problem on both of my windows 10 machines with brand new installs of fully updated windows 10

I download the origin installer, and when I run it I get:
"the code execution cannot proceed because MSVCP140.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix the problem"

Then the next error is:

"The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140.dll was not found"

Re installing? ITS NOT INSTALLED IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!

I can't seem to get around this... does someone want to Email that file! haha.

Please help seriously.

Nevermind on sending the files. I found them online when I added them into my system 32 folder, it actually killed my OS. After restart it sent windows into automatic repair mode... this sucks

I figured it out finally.... there are forum posts on how to fix this but unfortunately they are dated. You neever the 32 bit version of the package only. Has to be version 15, not 10. Every link has pointed me to 10.
