  • Installer error


    I used BC3 extensively on an older machine. Recently been upgraded to a new one and am trying to install BC but get the following error consistently:

    C:\ProgramFiles (x86)\Beyond Compare 3\BCompare.exe

    An error occurred while truing to copy a file:
    The source file is corrupted

    And then a Retry, Ignore, Abort option

    OS is W7 64 bit SP1, machine is a Lenovo T530

    So far I tried:

    1. Running installer as an administrator
    2. Downloading installer a second time
    3. Rebooting

    None of which have made any difference. I also tried googling for help but amazingly no-one else seems to have had this issue. Likewise searching thee forums (if I missed it in these forums and the answer is in a previous post, apologies)

    It sounds like the download was corrupt, and efforts to re-download have likely used a cached version of the original download.

    The quickest solution would be to try a different web browser or clear the cache of your current one, then redownload.

    If you are still having any trouble, please email us at [email protected] and we'll work to get you the setup file. Please include a link to this forum thread in the email.
