Windows 7 64-bit
Good game, simple install solution

I hate to respond to a post that's this old, but I had this exact same problem today, and found a simple solution. During the Far Cry install, choose to leave out DirectX 9.0b, especially if you have a newer version. I found that leaving this option unchecked allowed the install to move forward. Somehow the installer has an issue with the newer DirectX already on my PC. (Honestly don't understand from above how the patch helps to fix the install - doesn't the patch come after the installation?)
