Same. Never had any problems installing any games until Anthem. Frown

This is my first time ever using the origin installer too. What a terrible 1st impression. Maybe the EA criticisms are well deserved after all?

Did it take 3 hours from 42% to done (the time between your posts)?

also having this issue, i had this issue downloading Apex Legends too and i fixed it by deleting all the .cab files in the installers directx redist and then restarting origin, unfortunately doesnt work for me with anthem but this seems like a more widespread issue than just anthem

So here's what I did (working so far):

 

1) Task Manager - end task

2) Reset PC

3) Started Origin as Admin and the download continued past 42%
