Locate AddIns.xml in "C:/Users/(Username)/Documents/Bioware/Dragon Age/Settings" and edit it using WordPad or any XML editor. Press Ctrl + F to find. Replace all RequiresAuthorization="1" with RequiresAuthorization="0". ALL not just 1.
Pretty sure that's the fix.
Interesting / simple sounding fix!
Never tried it.Patch 1.05 is supposed to fix DLC authorization issues.
What happened was if you bought DAO Ultimate and it was not equipped w/ V1.05, the game forgot on the game install to ALSO install DAO Updater background Service program - and that needs to run to do the DLC authorization.
In the older days - you looked in the DAO installer folder, you could run that and that should take care of everything, once you first have tied the game + DLC codes to your BioWare Social Account.
And also make sure, you do install Witch Hunt patch 1.1 - lot of fixes in there, too.
TL;DR -> DAO Ultimate owners, make sure to install Patch 1.05 to fix DLC authorization issues; and install Witch Hunt Patch 1.1 to fix some issues there.
go to origin game folder -> Dragon Age Ultimate -> _Installer, suppose to have "DAUServiceSetup.exe" file.
run the file as admin, then start the game.
YES! THIS is what worked for me, before Patch 1.05 fixed DLC authorization isses.
