6.16 FAQ-18 I am receiving missing DLL errors. How can I resolve this?

Last Update: 5/31/2020

Origin is built using Microsoft (MS) Visual C++, and thus it requires certain MS DLLs to run. These DLLs need to exist on the computer where Origin runs. You may see an MS DLL error at Origin startup on a computer without these DLLs, especially if you use MSI to install Origin.

Download the Windows Installer (if needed) and MS DLL installers here

  • If you have a 32bit OS, install DLLs with suffix "x86",
  • If you have a 64bit OS, install all DLLs.
