I know very little about my computer except that I want it to work. I just tried to download something and received the NSIS error popup. I googled NCRC Command Line Switch and found this website with your information forum. Can anyone help me find this switch so I can download the program I want. I have read several other entries here and am beginning to think that the recent upgrade to the XP service pack 2 may be having something to do with it. My personal email address is [email protected] if any of you have the patience to deal with a newbie! I would sincerely appreciate some help. Thank you, shelley

Whatchya got going on there most likely is the result of a coding error in the app you're trying to download and install - prolly having to do with the installer for that app; NSIS is the open-source NullSoft Scriptable Install System, commonly found in association with amature-developed software.

A possibility is that your download of the app in question is corrupt, which easily can happen if you're using a download accellerator. Another possibility is that something else you've previously downloaded and installed is affecting the ability ofm NSIS to do its job, which is to install an application.

The "NCRC Commandline Switch" you mention isn't anything you can download or locate, its an error-check inhibiting parameter which can be appended to the command line install string for the app in question. From the Command Prompt , the desired command string would be typed, then the string "/NCRC" would be typed as the last entry on the command line, then the command line would be executed by hitting ENTER. There's a reason "Not Recommended" pops up in reference to that, and frankly, not to be mean or anything, but if you are not familiar and comfortable with command line operations, you have no business concerning your self with them, and doubly no business using optional switches to modify the intended function of them. If you've gotta ask, you have no need or reason to know.

My guess is the app you're concerned with somehow is related to P2P filesharing, was written by someone of uncertain credentials, and prolly is something you can do well without if you are unable to sort out its problems and pitfalls on your own.


The short version; I recommend you forget about it and move on.

Thank you for your recommendation!
Thank you for your wise recommendation. I have absolutely no idea what you said except that I won't mess with something I know nothing about and can't even understand! Point well taken. Yours truly, shelley

Yer weccum. I hate to see folks hurt themselves.




Though I derive a bit of income cleaning up after user-inflicted system damage - something which frequently calls for command line operations :wink:

/NCRC
This error does not just come up when downloading crap... I have the same error and I haven't a clue how to bypass it. NSIS is catching every download I complete. Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks for any help

About the only reliably effective way I can think of to remedy the situation would be to figure out the application (downloaded or installed from disc as the case might have been) which first brought about the problem, uninstall it and remove all remaining associated registry entries, and then track down and likewise eliminate all subsequent similarly affected apps. That can be a real adventure.

I'm not sure what RYL is. I assume it is a game. The best place to find info on installing a game is the forums for that game. Most problems have been experienced by someone before.

@shabbylady,
hey this error message could point out that the file downloaded has not been fully downloaded especially with files which have an exe extention which means you could install them on your computer so the installation would not be able to te complete untill the file is comletely downloaded this is an another mostly probable alternative

it's exactly like the big bird said...
In a few words: If you are donwloading torrent files just close the software you're using(bitorrent,utorrent,ect..). then close the process connected with it (btna.exe for example).
Now donwload again the setup file and try!
Quite simple, isn't it?
Thanks big bird
