I just bought BF3 for my PC. I just upgraded it to a gaming PC, using win7. Trying to install the game I keep getting this message and can't go any further:
"The game installation directory is invalid. Please select a different directory."
I Read your answer. Opened the file that's shown:
<Setting key="DownloadInPlaceDir" type="10" value="C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games"/>
Not sure what to change it to though.
