Does anyone know what a 7zip CRC error is? I am trying to install the game and as soon as the game is extracted the following error comes up. 7zip CRC error I do have unzip software installed, so can anyone help me?

The client you download (2.2GB exe-file) is a self-extracting archive. It contains a ZIP-archive of the WoT installation files and part of the "7zip" software to extract itself. CRC is a checksum used in ZIP-archives to verify the integrity of the files.

A CRC error means, that the archive is damaged (probably a part of it was not downloaded correctly due to connection problems). This means that you have to download the whole file again.
Try to use a seperate download manager software or a bittorrent client (bittorrent uses additional checksums to verify a downloaded file and if necessary redownload faulty parts (yes, faulty parts only, not the whole file) )

Thank you for the info Cpl Hicks. I downloaded the c+++visual windows file from microsoft and that fixed the problem with the crc error, but then came an error about corrupt dds. files so I have uninstalled the game and am currently downloading the whole 2.2gig client again, whew! Wish me luck on a new install!

Its simple too many people having the same problems so something wrong either with their stupid servers or who know what. First time in my life seen such a problem this game does not worth nor the effort or the try to play it. Its full of shit likes its still in beta. Hell in beta i had less problems than now.

Downloaded the client once and it happens not to pa attention on the server and downloaded the US client. WTF if you download US client cant change to play to Europe its WOT the first game you need new client for different server. So spent 10 hours downloading and its no use. Now i spent another 10 hours and i get the stupid msg WTF.

Not giving them 10 more hours.

I finally got the game to work. It took numerous downloads, but eventually I got a download that was not corupt. I friend told me about a website called mmohut.com were you can download an unzipped version that auto installs on your computer. Had my download been corrupted, then I would have used that website instead. I hope that helps everyone...

Is there any explanation as to why this latest availble dowload is corrupt. I have downloaded 6.7 10+ times and everytime i get "7-Zip: CRC error". Directly from the website(im re-downloading from the website as i write this) and also using utorrent. Each time same problem. I have played this game since open beta, and now im wishing i had backed up my wot files ive had since beta when i bought my new pc.

Judging by the date of this thread i can only assume the source archive is corrupt. Isnt this something only WoT can fix their end? Please let Overlord know as we are brothers in arms and im sure if he was aware of this problem he would kick someones ass.

Using 7zip to test the archive gave me..

1 CRC failed in WoT_0.6.7_eu_setup-1.bin, File is broken
2 CRC failed in WoT_0.6.7_eu_setup-2.bin, File is broken

Using utorrent3 i did 'force re-check'. It did show 99.7%. Started dl again and it dl/d to 100%. This was confirmed with force recheck. Still getting 7zip crc error.

Will downloading to a different folder change anything, if so, why?

Same here. Several downloads later I still get that 7 zip error message. Everytime the download is nog the same size as said on the download page.

It gets a little frustrating waiting for several hours several times and than getting that message. :angry:

I've been suffering this problem. No matter how many times I try to download and run, the setup always comes up with the following error:

"Non 7z archive"

I've sent a message to support, but nothing yet.
