Hello there, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

When are you getting this error? Is it installing the Base game, or applying the Manual Patch? Do you have any Expansion Packs?

How are you mounting the iso file? Make sure that you mount them properly. Using Daemon Tools Lite is recommended. 

And did you extract the .rar using WinRAR? Using other program may corrupt the file. Smile

I was mounting using Daemon. I think I may have used 7zip to extract it so I'll try with WinRAR. Thanks.

Remember to check if the files are completely downloaded before trying to extract them. If it doesn't work, be sure to let us know so we can try to help you further. Good luck! Smile

You're very welcome!

The problem was fixed in the Chatbox. Redownloading the Expansion Packs that got the error seemingly solved the issue.

I'll close the topic now. If you have any other issues, don't doubt to open a new one!
