Hi there! Smile

No, there's no need to do that, provided that you have enough space in your drive to have both of them. It depends on the size of your C: drive. But there's no necessity to uninstall The Sims 3 to install The Sims 4.

Yes, it's recommended (and maybe necessary) that you install The Sims 4 in the default location, that would be in the C: drive. Changing the location may mess up the installation. You can play both of the games normally, and have both of them installed at the same time.

Those setup1, setup2, up to setup5 are supposed to be CAB files, not RAR files. Please check that they are CAB files, or you may have downloaded a different torrent from the G4TW's one. The only thing you need to do is double click the The_Sims_4_Setup.exe. It should be pretty straight forward. 

No, there's no video (yet) on How to install The Sims 4, specially because the only step that should be necessary is to double click The_Sims_4_Setup.exe. Wink

Please, let us know if you have any more questions. Good luck! Very Happy

Yes, there's no need to extract anything else. Just double click the The_Sims_4_Setup.exe inside.

You shouldn't install The Sims 4 in other drive because of how the Custom Installer we have works at the moment. Some things were set up as if The Sims 4 would always be installed in the C: drive, and in that specific location. So, at least for the moment, try installing it to the default install location that appears during the installation, that would be C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4.

Sorry, I can't really tell you anything about that. We don't know specifically how those CD versions work (if they work at all), and how they can be installed. But it's possible that in the future we'll change the way the installer works, and you'll be able to install the game on a different drive. WhatDidUJustCallMe?

About that other question, I'll answer it in the other topic you posted. Can we close this topic now then?
