Hey I love the help and such at this forum :thumbsup: and would like to benefit again from that help. I get this NSIS error every once in a while when I download an installer and try to run it. It says It is corrupt or there is a virus. The part that interests me is the part that says "It may be possible to skip this check using the /NCRC command line switch (not recommended)". At this point I don't care if it is not recommended as I am scrubbing my hard drive and everything. So if it is possible, could someone guide me through this /NCRC command line switch thing.

Edit: Moved topic to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

As you already know the FAQ reply is here: Why do I get NSIS Error. But I added it for eveyone else who may read this in the future so there is plenty of information.

Then there is this google answer to your main question:

To use /NCRC, which is not recommended, click Start, choose Run, type the path to the installer (in quotes), add /NCRC and hit enter. For example, if the installer is in C:\My Downloads\Games\CatchMe.exe, type:
"C:\My Downloads\Games\CatchMe.exe" /NCRC

The above quote taken from here, post #2.

The rest of that thread may be of some use to you as well.

Thanks. I guess the installer was just corrupted though so I guess I didn't need this. But thanks!
