  • Hi Wizzard88,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    The error message ‘Data error (cyclic redundancy check)’ means the OS cannot read or write the data correctly, it often means the installer is corrupted.

    It looks like you used the ISO file to install, please check the integrity of the ISO file. You can use the FCIV.exe tool: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/heaths/archive/2011/03/25/verify-the-iso-checksum-for-visual-studio-2010-service-pack-1-before-installing.aspx  to check the SHA1 value of the ISO, the expected value comes from here: https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/downloads/visual-studio-2013-iso-sha1-vs.aspx, any discrepancy means the ISO is corrupted.

    You can also have a try with a web installer of VS ultimate 2013 and see if the same issue will happen or not.

    Meanwhile, please make sure you already followed the installation tips like Windows update is up-to-date, disable any anti-virus software, clean up the %temp% folder and run the installer as administrator, it can help you to avoid the unnecessary issues.

    In case, the issue is related to the OS itself, please have a try with the following steps to check and repair it:

    1. Run the command: sfc /scannow in the elevated command prompt

    2. Run the command: chkdsk /f in the elevated command prompt
