Alright I tried installing synfig on my windows 10 64 bit computer. I ran the 64 bit windows installer then I got a NSIS error saying the file is corrupted. I read up on the NSIS error saying that it might be the file path so I put it in a folder that I made sure that it doesn’t have any “unallowed” symbols and I renamed the file to just “install” nope I got the NSIS error again. So i tried the 32 bit installer instead, same thing NSIS error. Please help.
Yes I have checked both those things
Hello FacelessTIger (and welcome here!),
I found that in the forum …
maybe could help…
there are several possibilities if your installer is not corrupted (= hash is ok)
- try to start it as administrator
- try to change its compatibility mode to a version prior to Windows 10
- try to deactivate your antivirus
- try to move your installer to an path without space prior to start it. Sometimes it is preventing a .msi to start correctly.
- try to replace “Program Files” by “progra~1” (64bit edition on 64bit system, or 32bit edition on 32bit system) [ or by “progra~2” for a 32bit edition on a 64bit system]
- you could have a problem of access on temp folder or destination.
- you could install it a VM with a previous version of Windows and then transfer it back to the host machine, everything is portable.
We should think about to provide a .zip/.7z version of Synfig
its set to run as administrator so everytime I run it it has administrator permission.
I changed the compatibility to windows 8 (there isn’t a windows 10 compatibility yet so windows 8 is as close as I could get)
I deactivated both my windows firewall and my antivirus, same result.
Could i simply rename program files to progra~1 instead of replacing it, I have a bunch of folders in there.
I don’t have windows 10 pro since I upgraded from windows 7 home professional meaning I don’t have virtual machine support, trust me I tried.
