  3. Can't install Oblivion: Data Error

    The crc error is kind-of a developer's fault which happens if you install the game on a system where it had already been installed and uninstalled before. It had happened to me personally and my disk is fine...

    To manage without having to reinstall windows, try it - at the best you'd save buying a new disk and at the worst it might not work and no harm would be done...

    1.) Go to Add/remove programs and uninstall Oblivion (If it shows on the list). If the add/remove procedure results in an error - skip to the next step and continue as it will still remove the game with the remaining steps.

    2.) After or If the uninstall finishes go to Start - Run - type regedit - hit Enter - click on the + sign next to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, click on the + sign next to SOFTWARE, click on the + sign next to BETHESDA SOFTWORKS, right click on Oblivion (if it is still there) and then delete.

    3.)Now still in Regedit find HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{35CB6715-41F8-4F99-8881-6FC75BF054B0} and delete it the same way you deleted oblivion in the last step.(If it is still there - this is the uninstall key for add\remove programs)

    4.)close regedit.

    5.)Go into explorer find the C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Oblivion folder (if it is still there) and delete it.

    6.)find the folder C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\My Games\Oblivion (Substitute your username for USERNAME) and delete it (Again if it is still there)

    By doing this it will delete all traces of the game from your computer.

    Now you can install the game *Smile Can't uninstall or install any applications because of "NSIS Error: error writing temporary... :) hopefully without getting crc problems.

    If deleting the stuff from the registry doesn't work or you're still getting uninstallation errors, one way that I used to get around it was to go into Safe Mode and run the setup.exe file from the disc. IIRC it asks you if you want to reinstall the game...so go ahead and reinstall it.

    NSIS Error - STILL not working.

    Hi James,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community and we appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I will definitely assist you.

    There could be a software installation problem while you are trying to install software with the NSIS installer. If the NSIS cannot install something, the error which occurs could be due to several reasons. For example, improper configuration settings,
    corrupted installation files, firewalls, viruses, etc. It could also be a NSIS installer issue where the source program to be installed does not have a complete control over the software.

    NSIS errors usually occur under one of the following conditions:


    • Software files downloaded from the Internet are not complete.

    • Downloaded software files have been modified from the original version.

    • The computer is infected with a virus/malware.

    • Physical media being used to install the program is damaged.

    • Required hardware (For example, CD/DVD drive) is malfunctioning.
    I appreciate the steps you have performed. Let’s try simple steps and check if this helps in resolving the issue.

    Step 1.

    Try to rename the downloaded installer file and check if it helps. If the name of the downloaded installer files comprises multiple words, rename it to have only one word for e.g.
    SoftwareNameInstaller.exe.

    Step 2.

    You can also try downloading the software installer file from another approved source and check if it helps.

    Step 3.

    I also suggest you to run virus scan (Microsoft Safety Scanner) and check if it helps to resolve the issue. If a computer is infected by a virus, lots of resources will be taken up to greatly slow down computer performance.
    http://www.microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

    Note: Any data files that are infected may only be cleaned by deleting the file entirely, which means there is a potential for data loss.

    Hope this helps. Post us with the status we will be glad to help you.
