Installation of downloaded distribution fails: corrupt installation files


During installation of a downloaded distribution of ABBYY Lingvo x5/x6, the following error message appears: Some installation files are corrupt. Please download a fresh copy and retry the installation.

Two other messages can also appear:

CRC failed in Data\... Unexpected end of the archive

Cannot create Data\... The required volume is absent


These error messages can appear when one of the archives used during the installation is damaged or was downloaded incompletely.


If you downloaded ABBYY Lingvo as a single installer file, check if this file's size matches the file size indicated in the download dialog (this dialog appears when you click the download link). The sizes must be exactly the same.

If you downloaded ABBYY Lingvo as a distribution that consists of several files, check if the size of all the files except the last one is the same. If one of the files is smaller than the others, delete it and download it again, then try running the installation.

If you have the opportunity, we recommend downloading ABBYY Lingvo on a computer with a more stable internet connection, or at a time when your internet connection is less likely to become overloaded.

If the problem persists, please write an e-mail to our Technical Support Service. Include the serial number of your copy of the application, the error message, and the checksums of all of the installation files. You can get the checksum of your installation files by using an archiving application or any checksum application, such as MD5.
