SimCity 4 crack problem

Post by dannym02uk on Fri 31 May 2013, 20:54

I know this is an old game and im pretty much a noob at this sort of thing , however I followed the instructions for mounting the ISO's and installing the game but when it comes to installing the crack I'm having problems , every time I try to extract the rar file to the "apps" folder I get this message :

! C:\Users\linda\Downloads\Downloaded music\SimCity 4 Deluxe.rar: Cannot create simcity 4.exe
Access is denied.
! C:\Users\linda\Downloads\Downloaded music\SimCity 4 Deluxe.rar: No files to extract

I'm not sure if I have done something wrong during installation or not extracting the crack correctly but I tried using Winrar and 7-zip , both give me the same message.
Can anybody help ?

Thanks.

Click "Extract here", or just the simple extract, then move your files.
Otherwise, you might need access rights... Wink (launching as admin)

Thanks for the reply , I have been clicking extract here which is when I get this message. I right clicked on winrar a moment ago and clicked run as admin but again I get the same message , would I be right in saying this is what you meant by access rights ?

Thanks.

Yes, that was what I meant.
I usually do it with 7-zip: select the archive, click Extract, then OK.
If this still doesn't work, try re downloading, maybe with Chrome (your download is incomplete and cannot extract correctly)

I'll try downloading again , I've just had another message when I drag the file from winrar straight into the apps folder I get this message : you need permission to perform this action , I right clicked properties on the maxis folder and ticked allow on the boxes where it says control but still get the same message.

//MOVED
Hello,

Try moving the crack to your Desktop first and then, from there, move it to the correct folder. (C:\Program Files (x86)\Maxis\SimCity 4 Deluxe\Apps)
