Files From Torrent Not Extracting

Post by jujuhaha on Sun 05 Oct 2014, 08:49

Hello,

I downloaded The Sims 3 Ambitions torrent. I have a Mac. 

When it was finished downloading using uTorrent, I clicked 'Show in Finder' and tried to extract the .rar file using WinZip. I get a message saying 'Fatal error: The archive has not been loaded.  Nothing to extract.' So I'm pretty lost and am not quite sure what to do. I have installed the manual update.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Hello,
A Mac Helper will come help you.
In the meantime, have you tried using the Unarchiver? http://wakaba.c3.cx/s/apps/unarchiver.html

Are you sure the torrent is entirely downloaded?

You need to download StuffitExpander in order to properly extract all the files!
It's a free program. :]

It says it is 100% completed, and I ran a check on it. I have installed 2 other expansions just fine without using a different program.

Hi there! Smile

Even if you haven't had any problems using it for the other expansions, it's the actual recommended program for proper extraction in Mac. Why don't you try it? It's worth a shot, at least.

It is not necessarily solved, unless you were able to install the EP without the problem. Therefore, we must keep this open until you tell us that everything went perfectly fine. This prevent having overflow of topics in the thread.
