So i recently rebuilt my computer, and in doing so had to re-download and reinstall 3dsmax 2011 student version. I downloaded it and went to install, no problem. it got almost complete and then a pop up said "some installation files are corrupt. Please download a fresh copy and rety installation." I deleted and downloaded both files again. And the same thing happened. and again and again, 3 times i retried downloading. And still nothing. So i looked at the error message in the download window. "CRC failed in support\dotnetfx\dotnetfx35.exe

Unexpected end of archive" I opened Autodesk_3ds_Max_2011_English_Win_32-64bit.part2.rar and looked in support\dotnetfx and there is no file\folder named dotnetfx35.exe. So now i see what the problem is. I already have a later version of .netframework. Is there a fix for this? or a bypass since i already have it?


Thank you for reading, and i greatly appreciate any help that you can offer.

Welcome to the community!


Problems downloading the Autodesk software and/or CRC errors may be avoided by using another web browser, or using the alternate browser download method.

For more detailed information on this process, please see the following blog post tip here:


You can download the software from Matt, the virtual assistant.


Good Luck!
