Origin Game not working after an update?

More of a guide rather than a query.

Have you updated an Origin game and then it doesn’t load? I have had this happen twice and the fix is really simple without re-downloading the entire game.

Go to the folder where the game is installed. Delete the executable and all other files in the root. DO NOT DELETE any of the sub-folders.

In Origin, right click the game and click repair. After Origin has re-downloaded the contents of the root folder, the game should open with no issue.
