    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.
