Origin – DirectX Install Issues After Download Fixed

If you’re having trouble with Origin installs failing for every game, at the directX dependency installation step at the end, I found one solution.

Steam is rock solid on this one so… really highlights what’s sucking right now about having multiple stores. Imagine having to go to more stores than Amazon ๐Ÿ™‚ There’s good and bad to it hah.

Anyhow, navigate to your Origin Games folder. Usually

C:/Program Files (x86)/Origin Games

Click into your game.

Click into the __install folder

Click into directx/redist

Delete all .cab files (maybe ~20 of them) such that there is only the directx installer and a few .dlls

Run the directx installer that’s in the folder

Reopen Origin
