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 🙂 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
