I have 3ds max installed fine on a desktop computer I don't currently have access to. I have been trying to download and install it onto a different computer, both have Windows XP. The download completes but when I try to install I get an error that a file is corrupt, the installation cannot continue and that I must download a fresh copy. "CRC failed in Support\ADSKMaterials\ILM\Common~1.cab" I re downloaded 3ds max 2011 3 times, and the same error of a file being corrupt everytime with no hint at that while it's downloading. I realized that the 2012 version was available so I tried downloading that instead but still got a similar file corrupt error(I didn't take note if it was the same file or not).
I'm very frustrated and have found no solutions online and have no idea if it's something wrong with the computer I'm on, my account with autodesk or what.
CRC failed in x64\DirectConnect\odbxcore19glob.msm.cab
Tried with several different browsers chrome, opera, firefox; from versions 3DS max 2011 - 2013 all had the same error code while installing.
Tried on two different computers.
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:
I have the same issue. Admin on, no AV. Mutliple computers, 2 different ISPs, 4 different browsers and at least 12 attempts. There are always corrupt files. I am thinking that the problem isn't on my end.
I tried the 3rd party software and I defintiely do not advise using it.
Has anyone actually solved this that has had the issue?
Welcome to the community Rick!
Do you have the ability to download the software / .exe onto another computer and transfer over? Have you tried one of the alternative download methods (Install Now or Download Now)?
