    Found the fix here you go
  • I have deinstalled all VC packages...then it worked. I think because of origin is trying to install x86 packages and its causing a conflict.
  • So i just bought this game, its been out for almost a month, why is this problem not fixed yet? Should i just get my money back since i bought something I can't play?
  • someone help! trying two days ago. I can not install. all installed
    error: the vc ++ redistributable runtime package was not installed SUCCESFULLY. Setup can not continue in 1601

Microsoft tells me reset windows --' so does delete actual vc works and what did you do to fix it... my computer is just news from october lel and cant run titanfall 2 because a **** **** thing that is 2010 and 2012 version of vc++ --'

    Just figured out EA probably won't refund me for their game that doesn't work. I've never had something quite like this happen when buying a game, I guess its a new age we live in.

    Thank you for posting the videos on how to fix this, they pointed me in the right direction, the fix for me was to simply uninstall then reinstall the 2010 VC package like it said in the log file, the game is amazing well worth the trouble to fix, cheers.

    Works Fine thank you man. You are the real MVP
  • I know its been a while since the last post here but I just got Titanfall 2 and same happened to me.
    Easy fix -

    1. Open regedit
    2. Search for Visual C++ 2010 & Delete every folder containing Visual c++ 2010 redistributable. (BE CAREFUL NOT TO DELETE ANYTHING ELSE)
    3. Make sure you delete every 2010 redistributable folder as said above.
    4. Go to your Titanfall Directory and manually install Visual c++ redistributable that comes with the install C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Titanfall2\__Installer\vc\vc2010sp1\redist or whatever drive you have Origin games installed on.
    5. Run and install the vcredist_x64.exe.
    6. Then select install Titanfall 2 as your normally would from Origin (Warning, origin may crash, restart and play)
    7. Play game

    I done this and it works perfect after only 1 try :)
