Hello Kendall and welcome,


You must create an empty folder first and THEN you must extract ALL contents inside the .RAR file, into the empty folder you just created. Inside WinRAR, you can very easily MARK all the contents with your mouse (as if you're marking a text), and then you can drag & drop the marked contents out into the empty folder.

Then close WinRAR and go to that folder you extracted the stuff to. Inside the folder, run the setup.exe again. Good luck !




P.S. don't bump please, this is extremely impolite and only means more work for me (since I need to merge your posts into one).

yeah sorry, anyway, i do that and it says thee setups 1 2 and 3 are corrupt, any ideas?.. also if you  read my post, i actually did specify i was moving the contents of the winrar file.. And no offense, but you're copy and pasting the same text you put in other threads you didnt even realise that i already specified i was moving the winrar content.

Now slow down, people always "specify" lots of things, every day, but from my experience that usually doesn't say anything. But thanks for clarifying that, I just wanted to rule out any errors during extraction.

That said, are you sure the download in the torrent client finished 100% ? Because other than that, there isn't much else to suggest.


Try re-downloading the torrent, maybe even with a different torrent client.

Are you using uTorrent, and if yes, is the torrent of The Sims 4 STILL in your list, inside uTorrent ? Usually, after the download, the torrent will be seeded, and it will still be in uTorrent "seeding", until you remove the torrent.

If The Sims 4 is still there, right-click on it and select STOP. And then right-click again on it and choose "Force re-check". This can now take a while, but when it's done, try re-extracting the contents again (with WinRAR).

I'm guessing that this option with "STOP" and then "Force re-check" is also present in other torrent clients, but I only know for sure about uTorrent (since that's the one I'm using).

Good luck, and sorry I can't give you an easier solution. WhatDidUJustCallMe?


P.S. what version of WinRAR are you using ? Is it the 4.20 version from G4TW ? Theoretically, if your WinRAR happened to be a (really) old version, there could also be issues...so if it's really an older version, try getting a newer one. Get WinRAR 4.20 from G4TW, here (install instructions are included):
