Origin "Repair" broke my BF3 copy..

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Totally figures the Repair option BROKE my copy.

My BF3 copy constantly tells me to "Install now". Previously it gave me a DirectX internal installation error, but after a restart that's gone. Now it simply "installs" over, and over, and over, with a screen flashing for a split second and then going away.

Any ideas?

Go to your install directory.

There will be one bf3.exe that is 0KB in size and another one with some characters on the end, something like dupa_something. Delete the first and rename the second to bf3.exe,

Then press the Gear icon on Origin and click "Refresh My Games"

Should fix your problem wink.gif

Rename the dip staged one to bf3.exe and then continue with the final step I mentioned above.
