Can’t download Game from Origin

Problem

  • I’m trying to download a game from Origin but when it reaches a certain percentage, it goes back to a lower percentage. This constantly loops and I can’t download the game.
  • I get Error 7049:408 when I try to download my game

Solution

There’s a new beta version of Origin that addresses this issue.

Try these steps

  • Launch Origin and log in with your account
  • Click Origin in the top left (main menu)
  • Select Application Settings
  • From General tab, scroll down to Update to the beta version if available and tick the check box
  • Restart Origin

Also make sure that nothing is blocking your connection to Origin and maybe start Origin as administrator.
