The NSIS error will appear when you download software that does not pass an integrity check during installation. The reason this mainly occurs is that of corrupt files. To solve the issue, combinations of solutions are needed.

Solution 1: Install a Fresh Copy

The problem mainly happens when the installation files are corrupted which forces the installer to abandon the process of installation. You must ask the manufacturer for a new copy of the software.

Solution 2: Run anti-virus or anti-malware search

Use Avast or anti-malware software to clean your system of viruses and malware. You should use both since using one will miss the other.

Solution 3: Try executing the following steps:

• Clear the cache of the browser you use.
• The installer name must not contain any special characters. It should be a simple name like installer.exe.
• You can copy the installer to your computer by downloading it to another computer.

If you receive that NSIS error when installing a program, it means the setup file was created using NSIS and the integrity of the installer failed. When you have an integrity failure during installation, it could be related to CRC or the installer is damaged.

If you are just installing NSIS on your computer when the error was triggered and you are not compiling an installer, check the setup file you are using to install NSIS. Try installing it on a different computer and see if it works there. The error was triggered because there is a problem with the installer itself.

Basically, when you run an installer to install a program, the installer or setup file will unpack all the files needed for the installation. When there is a single file that can’t be read or accessed for extraction, setup will cancel and that triggers the error. For a successful installation, all files must be unpacked successfully.

To fix your problem, just download the installer again. Download the latest NSIS and install it if you are installing NSIS. This should fix the problem. If you are installing a different application, download the installer again to fix the problem. NSIS stands for Nullsoft Scriptable Install System.

It is a script-driven installer authoring tool supported by Nullsoft, the creators of Winamp, for Microsoft Windows with the least overhead.
