A window will pop up saying "Verify that the package exists and you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."  Although I've read other threads that has the same problem as mine. (A pop up will appear and symbols, letters, numbers, etc will appear.) I have avast as an antivirus software. So please help. Thank you!  WhatDidUJustCallMe?

P.S: I decided to start a new thread since I can't reply to any old thread because it's "locked".


Hello JelleFickle and welcome,

Please make an empty folder on the C: drive somewhere. And then, use the program WinRAR for extracting the contents of the download, into that empty folder on C:

You can get WinRAR 4.20 from here:
http://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html

After that, go to that empty folder and re-try the installation from there. Good luck and keep us posted ! Smile 




P.S. As an additional safety measure, I strongly suggest you de-activate avast completely before installing the game. Also make sure to add the default installation location of the game to the "exclusions" of avast. The default location is C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Game\Bin.


P.P.S. and yes, you are supposed to make a new thread anyway, instead of posting under someone else's topic. Wink

Can you please update us on your progress ? What exactly did you do and why do you think you have to install it on another computer ? Smile

Also, please always edit your last post, and not the opening post. If you edit your very first post, it will only make things confusing to follow.

Hi there! Smile

Please, open a new topic for your problem. It makes things easier to follow, and it makes it easier for us to help you. 

We'll be glad to do so after you've created the new topic.
