This Apex Legends error has to do with a certain .dll file that you need to delete and reinstall using direct X web installer. Make sure you have all the latest drivers installed for your GPU.

Before you start it is recommended that you completely uninstall Origin and Apex Legends and do a fresh installation for both. However, you can try the following solution without uninstalling the game and origin to see if it works. If not then do an uninstall followed by a fresh installation of the game and the client.

Step 1- Go to c:/windows/system32  and look for a file called d3dcompiler43.dll

Step 2- Now delete this file permanently.

Step 3- Download Direct X web installer from here.

Step 4- Run the installer and let it detect and download the missing file(s).

This should work for most people but do note that these Apex Legends fixes are very picky depending on your system and a bunch of other factors. If this does not work then a second method is to update your Windows 10 to the latest version. Some players have reported on EA forums that updating their Windows 10 solves this installation error for them.
