I downloaded Battlefield 1942 through Origin. It's the recently released free version.

I am trying to install the game, but I keep getting a popup window saying...

"DirectX Setup Error: DirectX setup cannot be completed because some components are currently in use. Please restart your computer and try again."

Well I have rebooted several times and still get this error. How can I get around this so I can install the game?

THE FIX...

1) Close and re-open Origin.

2) Go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Battlefield 1942\__Installer\directx\redist".

3) Delete all files except for...

DSETUP.dll
dsetup32.dll
DXSETUP.exe

4) Run the Battlefield 1942 installer.
