DirectX Setup Error: An internal error occured.

[ Edited ]
★★ Novice

Whenever I attempt to press install (after using all 3 discs) the error "DirectX Setup Error: An internal error occured." comes up. Any suggestions? All others games such as ones on Steam and in general have no errors with DirectX.

Hi, you might need to manually reinstall DirectX.

 

-Reinstall DirectX.
1:go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 4\__Installer\directx\redist and find file named DXSETUP.exe

2: Install it while conencted to internet
3: You might need to reboot computer first.
4: try to launch game.

 

Try that and see if it works.

 

EDIT: corrected link!

Oops, sorry I posted from the Beta link instead Standard smile

 

It should be this:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 4\__Installer\directx\redist

 

Find file named DXSETUP.exe and double click it (while connected to the internet). It should update your DirectX install.

I have tried everything and I keep having the same issue, I think it's just that directx and origin do not get along because my problem is with fifa world yours is battlefield..... when i check my directx it reports as no problems found....

Maybe they just want us to spend our money on windows8...........................and EA not going to spend their money to sort it out as windows 7 is now becoming part of the past

keep ripping us off...............

Try the method listed in this video. It solved this problem for me on Hardline, BF1942 and BF2142. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3umR5vLcPwoc

Try this:

 

1:go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\(your game)

 

2: \__Installer\directx\redist 

 

Erase all .cab (Keep a copy of those on another file outside the game folder

 

Keep: 

 

DSETUP.DLL

 

dsetup32.DLL

 

DXSETUO.exe

 

Run the game
