BF4 Beta Installation Issue. (Direct X error) Cabinet file not properly signed!

★★ Novice

Ive tried absolutely everything and still nothing, Im on Win 8 pro 64 bit with the lasted Direct X 11. I cannot install the Beta even after 4 hours with EA support. Someone have any idea on how to fix .CAB files?

Alright, try this please:

Download the DirectX End User Runtime: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8109 and place the file in your Battlefield 4 Beta DirectX Installer folder: C:\Program Files\Origin Games\Battlefield 3\__Installer\directx\redist

Then try the installation again.

Navagete to your Battlefield 4 Beta folder, if you have changed from default you can find the file path under Origin>Application Settings>Advanced.

Once you are in the Battlefield 4 Beta folder follow this path  __Installer/directx/redist

Once in the redist folder sort by file type, select all the .cab files and delete them.

Rerun the install and get ready for some beta action!

Please open your Battlefield 4 installation folder and navigate into __Installer\directx\redist (the default path is C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 4 Beta\__Installer\directx\redist)

Delete all .cab files from that folder, then run a Repair install on your Battlefield 4 (available via a right-click on Battlefield 4 in your games library).

 

Let us know if that helps.

I did all that too... never worked. Went on youtube. Same problem with Battlefield 3 back in the day with the same fix. Never worked. Saw a comment saying that the computer just needed to be restarted. Restarted the computer. I will be enjoying the Beta tomorrow after work Standard smile
