Installation slows to a stop at 20% then jumps to 27% and stops with this error:
"Error: The VC++ runtime redistributable package was not installed successfully. Setup cannot continue. (-2147024891)"
I've tried multiple things... downloaded and installed the C++ files (vcredist_64). I also redownloaded the game/Origin serveral times (Also in SafeMode with networking). If anyone can fix this problem please help!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hello all. Hoping for a quick reply, kinda want to get into action...
I have a problem installing BF4. It seems to be somewhat comon, its the "Error: The VC++ runtime redistributable package was not installed successfully. Setup cannot continiue. (False)"
I have googled for many, many hours, trying to find a solution, nonetheless, here i am.
I have tried to uninstall the VCredist 86/64 and reinstalling them, nope. I tried to reinstall SDK, which gave me a fresh install of the Visual c++, but nope.
I tried to manually go into the battlefield 4 folders and install the 64/86 visuals from there, but then i got another errormessage that i couldnt install them (this error message came just when trying to install in this specific folder, i can install them to my pc).
I can install them without any problem, yet battlefield does not seem to recognize them?
I deleted the both 64/86 in the /Redist folder in the battlefield folder, reading that i may have to manually install them and move them there. But, i cant seem to find the location of them... this may be key, where are they located?
I am very frustrated, and i have no idea what im doing, any help will be greatly rewarded.. in feels !
This is a repost of a post i made on Reddit.
I cant fix this **bleep**ing problem. I will greatly apreciate ur help.
TLDR: BATTLEFIELD 4 STOPS AT 20/27%, VCREDIST INSTALL FAILED, CAN NOT MANUALLY INSTALL THEM IN THEIR FOLDERS, ABLE TO INSTALL VCREDIST/C++ **bleep** MANUALLY OUTSIDE OF BF4, BUT THE INSTALL WONT RECOGNIZE THAT I HAVE THEM/IT/THAT,.
I do not see how installing in safemode would change the fact that the vcredist **bleep** does not install?
Please explain further. How do i even try to install it in safemode?
1. restart computer
2. run it on safe mode by pressing F7 or F8 (safe mode with network)
3. Run Origin as admin
4. click on install now and it should be ready to go
it did it to me too, i tried to reinstall a couple of times, the last time doing nothing else on my computer but install the game and it finnally worked.
