When the program first launches it requires you to enter or create an EA/Origin ID.
I had the same similar error message for both games, but the actual solution for each was different:
The problem I had was that when I entered my information (existing account), I got a generic "We're sorry, an error has occurred." message.
After multiple exchanges with both Amazon and EA technical support - here was the solution:
For Dragon Age:
Download and install the Origin client and use that to activate the game. It will detect that it is already installed.
(same goes for Dragon Age II). Once the game is activated, and you run it at least once, you can uninstall the Origin client.
If you uninstall the "EA: Shared Component Game Activation" you will have to re-activate the game.
For Dragon Age II:
Even though you can create an account online and use special characters in your password, the game itself does not recognize it and you will get that generic error. Just use letters and numbers, and you should be able to connect to the Dragon Age Servers from within the game. Then all the DLC will be recognized.
Don't know why the same password only worked for Dragon Age and not Dragon Age II, but figured I would share my $.02 anyway.
Note: No problems with using the Amazon Downloader software. While you can use the Origin client to download and install the game - it has a terrible bug in that it may encounter an error, not complete the download, and delete all the downloaded data thus far (even trying to set the do not delete permissions on the folders doesn't resolve the problem).Read more ›
Origins terms of service are pretty broad and it gets me a little leary thinking about the nefarious things they could do that still doesn't detract (for me anyway) the awesome value of this bundle.
You can register these games on origin (not needed to be on origin or register it on origin to play)
The pack comes with separate keys for each of the game:
DA:O game key and complete dlc key
DA2 game key and the black emporium key
You can register both keys (and dlc keys to unlock the content) on the bioware site.
For those that want to use origin: both keys will register but you have to put the dlc keys on the bioware site. Also the game does NOT autoupdate, so you have to install the patches manually from the bioware site.
Other than those things, the pack is a great deal and I had no problems installing it and running the game on my win7 x64 machine.
"Well, What's the reason for the 1 star rating if you like the game so good?" Well, I've rated it 1 star for one single reason.. I wanted to play through the game again, and I wanted to finally play through the 2nd one, but the games are no longer in my Origin game library.. At first I thought I may have accidentally redeemed it on another account, but I logged into Bioware's site and it says I do own the game on that account, so I don't really know what's going on with it. I've searched all over the internet for an answer to no avail..
So it looks like I'm gonna have to buy the game again to be able to play it, which I don't plan on doing. I may just sign up for the Origin Access thing they have now so I can play the older 2 Dragon Age games and the new one, but I'd still like to know why the games vanished :(.
I got the PC version and completelly dumped the other games I was playing in the PS3!.
This game is just amazing, I cannot find words to define it. Completely replayable, with many ways to personalize your character, incredibly nice environment and characters, very well done Game Engine... It has kept me awake for nights!.
Completely recommended for any RPG lover.
I still have to play Awakenings and Dragon Age II, but the price, even for the playability of Dragon Age Origins makes up for it!.
I used the Amazon downloader which was neither slow nor cumbersome to use like some others have reviewed. Origins is a 12.4gb file so I'm not sure how quickly people expect that download to happen. While the download was going on, I went ahead and ran through the game's website and found (without much trouble and in a conspicuous location) that a 1.05 patch was available, and downloaded that in anticipation of patching the game prior to playing.
So the game download finished with no drama (approximately 2:30hr using a broadband connection), patch was downloaded well before then, and I ran the install which took me through the rest of the installation process. An initial step that the install process instructs you to do is to create an account on the EA site, which I proceeded to do. Then it was just a simple matter of dropping in the game's registration key in the appropriate field, then using the "promo" code to activate the downloadable content, and when I fired up the game - VOILA - all DL content was available, no muss no fuss. The entire process took about 3 hours in total. Didn't have to call EA support, Amazon support, re-enter any extra codes or re-enter any registration keys. Not sure what is giving others issue, but mine is fine running on Windows7 64-bit.
Lastly, why not 5 stars?Read more ›

Dragon Age, as with the mass effect games are great games. 2 did get repetitive but was still enjoyable.Published 23 months ago by Typhoongrande
I love DA 1 so much. One of the best RPGs ever made. It actually has a story!
DA2 was a bit of a let down. But I'm waiting for DA3 impatiently...
These games are my favorite of any I've played. Engaging storyline, well thought-out history and world, and fun tactics. Having all of Origins was great. Read morePublished on May 5, 2014 by Angela Camp
