Hello SimSimma,


Try downloading and installing the following files in the link:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=40784

Download and install all 3 files, so the...

vcredist_arm.exe
vcredist_x64.exe
vcredist_x86.exe


After you did that, re-try installing the game. Good luck ! Smile

Hi there! Smile

Please, open a new topic for your issue. Even if the problem seems the same, it may be caused by different things and each user could need a different solution. Because of this, we'd rather have each user in a different topic.

We'll be glad to try and help you after you've created the new topic.

Hi there! Smile

Just to make sure, did you extract the RAR from the torrent with WinRAR? Using any other program may damage the files.

Hello SeoY, How Are You? Anyways, Yes I Did & Nothing. Used WinRAR, but do I have to uninstall my winZIP In Order To Use It?

Hi again! Smile

Sorry for the late reply.
No, there's no need to uninstall WinZip to use WinRAR. If WinZip is the default program, you need to right click the RAR file and select "Open with...". Look for WinRAR in the list and choose it. Finally, proceed with extracting it to the new folder as usual.

I hope you will read this. Good luck! Very Happy
