Restart your computer yet?

Sounds like you need to close all bf3 apps (bf3.exe, your battelog browser, and origin.. all 3) and then reopen it.... but a restart of your PC might be it, too.. just do that.

Edit: I solved the issue with moving my TEMP folder from my RamDisk back to my SSD and now it works fine!

Ok, i also have an SSD and also had the Temp Directory on my RAM Disk, but changing the temp back to c: DOESN´T solve my Problem >.<
Was the first thing i tried yesterday :-(

PS: Was´n der original Dateipfad für das Temp Verzeichnis? ;-)

Ich glaube C:\WIndows\Temp aber ganz sicher bin ich mir nicht; hast du daran gedacht TEMP und TMP zu ändern ?

Ok Problem solved, thanks kiLLahweSPe ;-)

-> Temp directory has to be on your c: drive for origin update

c:\temp and c:\tmp worked fine for me!

Go to windows systemsettings and change back your temp folder to c:\temp and the tmp folder to c:\tmp

Just move the Temp Directory back to C:\, restart the PC, install the update, then you can move the Temp folder back to you your RamDisk, restart, and everything is fine :)

In order to install Origin correctly you must have administrator level privileges.

Redownload the origin installer and just install it over the current installation.....
