AutoCad Architect 2011 install problems

I downloaded AutoCad Architect 2011 and whenever I try to install the product I get the following message.


CRC failed in x86\en-US\ACA\Content\ADT_Base\

Unexpected end of archive


This is followed by a pop up telling me to re-download the lot as the file was corrupt.


Done this 4 times at 1h:30 a shot which is not much fun and with no progress thus far.


I run windows 7 on a 32 bit machine.


Any help much appreciated.

Problems downloading the Autodesk software and/or CRC errors may be avoided by using another web browser, or using the alternate browser download method. You also might have better luck downloading from another computer altogether.  Make sure that you anti-virus is disabled when downloading. 

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

Can someone explain why, when I try to download the 2011 AutoCAD Architecture Student Version, I get a 9-minute YouTude video that interrupts the installation?  The video completely covers the download screen and does not go away after it has finished playing.  It is as if it's blocking the download and I have no way of going around it.

Hi cstarks,


The youtube video should appear after you click on the "Download" button, which will also open a new window to save the .exe file. Which internet browser are you using / I'd reccomend firefox.
