Talk:Why do I get NSIS Error?

From NSIS Wiki

==== On windows xp configured for foreign language as native, will fail CRC because the path name to the home directory does not enumerate properly. Foreign characters are translated into "????" and the path is not traversible (thanks msft). The CRC check fails (NSIS error) and does not explain why, but moving the file to C:\ and executing from there is a simple workaround.

How it will work ? 21:12, 7 December 2010 (UTC) What does it mean when it says "It may be possible to skip this check using the . I had the Google toolbar with IE6 but it didn't come through on IE7. I reinstalled Google toolbar from this link as well as installed the latest version of JAVA for Windows/online. The error is gone!!!

This error appears to me when I open a web link. It happens in different sites (eg. ebay). What can i do?

Follow the instructions on the page. You probably have malware. For further assistance, use the forum. The comment pages are not a good place for questions. --kichik 13:40, 9 March 2007 (PST)

I want uninstall this , so how am I do this?

problems installing English software on non English

I notice several English programs (second life, EFF TOR package) won't install on my Japanese Windows, a dialog comes up that simply says NSIS error.

And no, I will not go to the forum, I will use other software. Please stop giving people who want to use your software the annoying run around - get it together.

Well, that's too bad. they simply can't help help you without any details. --kichik 03:13, 27 September 2007 (PDT)

Problem when installer is in folder with cyrillic characters

I got the NSIS error when trying to run the installer for some software (notepad++, 7zip). The files had been downloaded by a localized version of Firefox 3.5 to the default download directory. The directory name contained cyrillic characters. Example:

C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\Преземања

Moving the installer files to a directory containing only ASCII characters helped and I was able to perform the install. This issue looks to be connected to the above (Japanese OS) and seems like a problem with the handling of unicode characters.

This one worked for me. I've copyed files i want to instal from C:\Documents and Settings\xXx\My Documents\Descărcări - Descãrcãri=Downloads - to my desktop and run the installer. it worked for me !

NSIS error: for executable files

I was trying to install programs like bitorrent, emule etc. but all failed bcos of nsis error.I have installed norton internet security in my computer. I disable it then again i tried all failed.but i can install the same files to install from network in my computer. ie executable file in another computer and then try to install from there. Its working fine. when i copy to my computer i cannot install it. I tried all the way as u told. still i couldnot solve the problm.I even installed new nsis version 2.3. but failed. Please give me an answer for me.

Seems like a failing hard drive. Use the forum for further help. The comments section isn't the best place to ask questions. --kichik 10:19, 27 November 2007 (PST)

Confusing documentation

Documentation says that it will show this error when the installer is run from an invalid location but it doesn't say what a valid location is so I don't know. I've tried running the installer from /Users/admin/Downloads and /Users/admin/Desktop and /Users/admin but gives the same error... the docs say it can be other directories ("etc") so is it a bug, or is it an invalid location? No one knows 04:10, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Ok just figured it out... I had unicode in my nsi file and it didn't like that. The unicode was the macron in the word "māori" 04:13, 23 August 2011 (UTC)

Drag the installer into the black console window

In Windows Vista impossible drag the installer into the black console window.

It may be the router problem.

I had this problem for over two months. Any downloaded file, either "file is corrupt" or "NSIS_Error". I cannot update my any virus database or my windows OS. But after I changed the router, all problems were gone.

Error launching installer

NSIS Installer/Uninstaller will raise this error whenever you will launch the installer/uninstaller from an forbidden location (such as C:\, C:\Windows, C:\Program Files, etc).

This is an constraint set on initialization phase of installer/uninstaller and it will always check for this rule. It make sense while you might have a RMDir/Delete instruction in your install/uninstall sections that will harm your system irreversibly.

Just make sure you run this software from a valid location and the installer/uninstaller will load into memory (and run just fine.ok

NCRC option

As the previous message states, running with the "/ncrc" option might skip the check. But in my case, it didn't and i got the same error message. What is the cause of this unexpected behaviour? TY.

The CRCCheck attribute can be used by the install author to force the crc check. --Anders 19:29, 31 May 2011 (UTC) '/ncrc' is not recognized as an internal or external command , oparable progam or batch file.

i have the same, so is there a fix for the problem then or will i have to live forever without stencyl :(

Error Message Removal

The issue I have is one that everyone seems to have overlooked. I have no interest in fixing the problem - it is an old issue that is no longer relevant. I just want to stop the NSIS ERROR message showing every time I reboot.

It's a file path issue in 90% of cases

Move the executable file temporarily to a file path that only contains latin alphanumeric characters (A-Z,a-z,0-9) and it will probably run without any issues. In my case, an installation of FlashGet failed because the path contained a couple of '#' characters.
