3ds Max 2012 -- Corrupted files

3957 Views, 5 Replies

Alright, so i've downloaded the self-extrator exe file i don't know how many times, and each times, some files are corrupted in it.


It's always common­ that corrupts. I've even tried downloading it on a different computer, that uses a different browser (i use firefox and this computer uses Internet Explorer), and same thing happened: CRC errors pops up while extracting the install files.


Also, both computers uses Windows 7.


Anyway, i hope you'll be able to help me, cause i really don't know what to do now to download the self-extractor exe file without it corrupting the files in it.

Hello Criss1180:


One thing to try would be to disable all Antivirus on your machines, turn off all AV services, shut down any Spy/Malware programs, download a fresh copy of 3ds Max and unpack it.

I'm getting the same problem as the earlier posters on a Win7 64-bit environment. A number of files get corrupted during unpacking. I tried unpacking on a Win7 32-bit environment, and all went well. I would copy the unpacked files to the 64-bit environment and see if that would install properly.

I will disable everything but it's getting annoying already...

Glitches like these should be mentioned from start !


I hope this time will work,if not I am giving up.
