PC Titanfall Direct x install error

Game gets to 99% installed and fails due to direct x. Direct x is up to date. my video card is up to date. My system far exceeds minumum requirments. I have deleted all temp files. My computer has been restarted. The game will not install since it is giving the error on an install (from what i can tell) that is not needed. I am running windows 8.

Re: PC Titanfall Direct x install error

I did see a person encountering a similar issue during the Beta. Their reported fix was to so the following:

Step 1. Goto your Titanfall folder > _Installer > directx > redist. Remove all .cab files (delete them) while leaving the .dll and .exe files
Step 2. Copy your directx folder and place it in the __Installer folder (Or the main game directory).
Step 3. Install through Origin (If this doesn't work the first time repeat it at least 3 more times)

Re: PC Titanfall Direct x install error

Right click on the game in Origin and choose Repair Game. This will check for missing or corrupt files. Once complete the CAB files should be present and uncorrupted, allowing the DirectX install to complete.

Re: PC Titanfall Direct x install error

I can confirm that 'right-click / Repair' works.

 

Installed from PC-DVD ROMs in sealed package, delivered by UPS this morning from Amazon.

 

Got the DirectX error, found suggestion here, performed, and game is ready to Play.

 

System is:

 

Intel I5-4430

12GB RAM

WD Caviar HD

nVidia GTX 650Ti 2GB

Windows 8, all patches and updates applied. (not 8.1 !)

Re: PC Titanfall Direct x install error

\Titanfall\__Installer\directx\redist

 

goto that folder and delete all the cab files, seems to have worked for me.
