Just like the topic title says, I have been receiving this message: Data error (cyclic redundancy check) when trying to install some software. The whole error reads:
C:\Users\Me\Downloads\ArtizenInstall_295.exe Error 23 while opening this file: Data error (cyclic redundancy check).
I've tried turning off my AV and UAC (just in case, who knows with computers) . . . I've cleaned my registry and run the disk check.
Any ideas? Let me know if I need to provide more info. Thanks, Kirk

When seen with optical drives...that message usually indicates a problem reading the media. I would check the drive...and the media used.

If I received that message with every type of CD/DVD...I'd try cleaning the lens and/or prepare to acquire a new drive.

I have it on my C:\ drive and was also suggested to d/l to a separate drive, which I did, but nothing worked.

Since it seems to me that this file is either a keygen or possibly malware...I would suggest that you scan your system carefully for malware.

A CRC error on a data file normally indicates a damaged file.

Thanks Louis. This is a legitimate file that is distributed from the company and others have d/l'd and used successfully. In fact, I am the only one experiencing a problem with it.

In that case...I would try to download it again :).

Thanks hamluis . . . I have re-d/l'd it and also tried it on my wife's PC and got the same results. Again, I am the only one with the problem. And I tried to reinstall the version I had prior to attempting the upgrade and I couldn't do that anymore either.

I can't answer anything but the obvious...there is some problem with your system that prevents it from installing. What that might be, I can't say.

Yeah . . . I'm getting to believe that too. I'm hoping its the file more so though because I got the same error on my wife's machine. This laptop is only a couple years old. Everything else seems to be working fine. Speed is as it has been (at least) since I purchased it. I do regular registry cleanings and have an auto defragger. AV and support software up to date. I guess I'll just have to be patient. Thanks for all your attentions to this. Kirk
