NSIS Unable to install issue

Asked By 600 points N/A Posted on -

Hello geeks,

I am trying to install NSIS (Null Soft Scriptable Installer System) on my pc, which is an open source windows based installer system for the distribution of the applications.

Whenever I start the installer, it presents the following error.

nsis problem

NSIS Error

The installer you are trying to use is corrupted or incomplete.

This could be the result of a damaged 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


As the error says that there is some problem with downloaded files, I tried to re-download them. Then did a download at a net café and brought that to home for installation but every time the same error appears.

I think this is caused by some other issue that me and the installation system unable to detect.  Operating System is Windows XP professional with service pack 2

Any idea?

Hi Kedward,

If re-downloading of the file in different ways didn't fix your problem, then maybe the problem was not caused by the download. It is possible that the copy of the installer being provided by the website itself is corrupted. This means that you cannot successfully use it and install however you download it. You should notify the website you downloaded it from so that they could provide you with a working file.

You can also try looking for the same installer from other websites and try to download it from there. By the way, you should check the compatibility of the program to your Operating System before you install it. You can try other versions of the program too. It is just a matter of finding a working installer of the right program for your Operating System. Also be careful with your downloads. You might find yourself fighting some virus you got from a download.
