Sims 4 disk 2

Post by comdon on Wed 07 Jan 2015, 22:32

halfway through installing it asks for disk 2. I looked around the forum and a solution is to open .RAR download of the sims and extract the contents onto an empty folder, however I have no idea what this means. What is .RAR? and how do i extract it?  Help thanks Facepalm Smile

Hello,
Please use WINRAR to extract the .rar on Windows.

Hello and welcome,


Adding to what Shamrock said, you can get the program WinRAR here (install instructions are included):
http://games4theworld.org/downloads.html



After installing the program, double-click on the download The Sims 4, from G4TW. It should open in WinRAR. Then you mark all the contents inside the .RAR that show up, with your mouse. And after that, you drag + drop the marked contents with your mouse, into an empty folder on your desktop. Note that this "extraction" may take a while.

When you're done, close WinRAR and then go to the folder where you extracted the stuff to. Start the installation (according to the included .pdf there) from within the folder. Good luck !
