Hi, I'm trying ME3 pol, but installation fails when the script launches Origin (for logging and download the game):

Translating from italian:

Can't complete update. Download and install last version of Origin from http://...

Origin was correctly installed in ME3's prefix and a launcher is added in PlayOnLinux. Same error launching Origin from there.

can you enable "debug" mode in PoL ("configure" menu) options and paste log please. Be also sure that you don't use material firewall (from your box for example) and/or software firewall (skipped with your distro) blocking Origin update.

Hi, I have a possible solution: the origin installer used by playonlinux has size 16,3 MiB; i tried downloading the version linked in the error message:

It is larger, 56,4 MiB. I've copied it in POL's resources folder, removed write flag (avoiding overwrite with old exe), started ME3 script again and it worked; now I'm downloading the game.

This installer doesn't ask to reboot and I think 1-2 steps can be removed from the script itself.

Give it a try.
