    FYI, Origin does run on Windows 8/8.1 as I've completely played Mass Effect 3 under the OS, plus a few rounds of Dragon Age 2 - Origin based games. In fact I'm about to reinstall the app since I recently did an OS reinstall.

    Don't know what's going on but there shouldn't be any issues under Windows 8/8.1.
