While installing the student version of 3DS max 2012 an error occurs. The error is:


CRC failed in 3rdParty\x86\Partners\CraftAnimations\CraftDirectorStudio.exe
Unexpected end of archive

The installation process ends after this. I have tried redownloading it but that hasn't fixed the problem. What do I need to do to fix this? Thank You.

I would try to re-download it again and try the extraction of the file on another computer.  I have tested the EDU download and by default it's a browser download.
