NSIS Error

Error:
Installer integrity check has failed. Common causes include incomplete download and damaged media. Contact the installer’s author to obtain a new copy.

http://nsis.sf.net/NSIS_Error

Error:
The installer you are trying to use corrupted or incomplete.


Solution:
run you exe file in CMD mode.
[FileName].exe /NCRC

Solution:
This could be the result of a damage disk, a failed download or a virus.
You may want to contact the author of this installer to obtain a new copy.
It may be possible to skip this check using the /NCRC command line switch (NOT RECOMMENDED)
If you have this error then you can go to Start>Run>cmd (or command for Win98 or ME)
and then go to your destination folder and run your setup (or any exe file) like this:
[FileName].exe /NCRC
for Example:
SharpDevelop_1.1.0.1964MayBetaRefresh_Setup.exe /NCRC

Good morning Blogger, I find it quite refreshing to occasionally find a post such as yours with a different topic completely. It somehow ads to ones little list of lifes experiences.

I seem to have a soft spot for blogs related to
# #LINK## and /or sites that have a central theme around submit articles type items. I guess this comes from being a webmaster as well.

Hi! I was very glad when I came upon your post! I've been having the same problem; I tried disabling my firewall....EVERYTHING..but nothing seems to work. I did try following your instructions but that didnt work either...am I doing something wrong? When I downloaded the software I wanted, I saved to my desktop, when I click on it....it runs thru the downloading process until the last 3 secs then the NSIS error occurs, thus I do no know my ___.exe name. BUT when I RUN it straight off instead of saving it the name is shown and that is wat I used to for my command run, but it doesnt wrk. Any suggestions?
Please email me at: thuvn89 AT hotmail.com
I look forward to hearing from you!
