Dorico 3 Download problem

Have you run a check on your disk drive to make sure any bad sectors have been marked?

frankfro, you can indeed find direct links to the Dorico 3 application installer itself here.

thanks I’ll try that, but I havent any trouble with other software installs.

thanks Daniel, much appreciated, I’ll give them a go.

still no luck I’m afraid, I ran check disk and it found no issues. I tried the direct link download, but still get same error when running the exe file.
when I run it I get this:
Extracting files to temporary folder
Extracting from Dorico_3.0.10_Installer_win.exe
Checksum error in Dorico\Additional Content\VST Sound\REVerence Content 01\FCP_SMT_005_Reverence_ImpulseLibrary_01.vstsound
Checksum error in Dorico\Dorico3.msi

That definitely suggests a problem with the download itself. Very strange! Do you have access to another computer you could download the files onto, then transfer them to your main machine by way of a USB drive?

ok thanks, I’ll give that a try.

Hi Daniel, I thought I’d flag that I’m getting a similar error message when I try to install the direct download, albeit on macOS.

It is saying that the file is damaged and should be moved to the bin.

Am I the first Mac user to be getting such an error message?

Any help would be appreciated. Dorico works great… I’m doing the trial now and I can see how superior it is to Sibelius! I REALLY would love to get this resolved.

Many thanks,

I’ve not seen any other reports of this, Tom. Have you tried downloading the content installer via Steinberg Download Assistant?

Hi Daniel, yes I’ve tried a number of times to download the sounds through the download assistant but it never gets through the verification stage of the download/installation. I just get the following message…

I’ve also downloaded the direct download onto my iPad and dropped it across to my Mac but I still get the error message saying that the file is damaged.

Any suggestions?

I’m not sure what to suggest at the moment, Tom. Where in the world are you located?

Melbourne, Australia!

thanks Daniel. I downloaded on my phone, and copied to PC and installer is working thanks.

Tom, do you have access to an internet connection at another location, e.g. your place of work or educational institution, where you might be able to try the download and transfer it to your computer by way of a USB drive, or similar? I can post a USB drive to you from the UK, but I don’t know how long it will take to reach you.

Hi Daniel,

I’ll pop over to a friend’s place with a thumb drive and see if I can get the dmg there. No need to post anything from Blighty! Thanks for the offer though. I’ll let you know how it pans out :slight_smile:


Hi mate,

I am based in Melbourne too and getting the same issue( error message thst file is damaged and should be send to bin) while downloading Cubase 10.5. I am trying to download on my phone and see if that helps.


I get corrupted file messages when I try to install Dorico 3. Tried many, many times. I can’t install via download assistant, because that doesn’t run. (Tried that lots of times also). Western Australia.

Same with two different computers, btw.

Did you open the Download Assistant as Administrator? Sometimes that helps.

Yep, run as Administrator. Splash screen then nada. (No errors on installing it).
