Hi there, @elman123, and welcome to the Games4theworld Forum! Smile

Are you completely sure that the torrent had completely downloaded before attempting to extract the RAR file? If it hadn't finished, then you may get errors like this one. You can also stop the torrent and then right click it in uTorrent (I assume you are using this program) and select "Force Re-Check". After that, try extracting the RAR file again.

Please, let us know how it goes. Good luck! Very Happy

I'm sorry, but it's not a matter of 'just uploading it'. If you got a corrupted setup1.cab after extraction, it's very possible that the other files from the RAR are corrupted too. And setup1.cab is almost 2GB, as it's an important part of the installation files.

Are you completely sure that your WinRAR is updated? You can download WinRAR 4.20 from our website here:
http://www.games4theworld.org/downloads.html

If that's not the issue, then I'm afraid you may need to re-download the torrent, perhaps using another client this time. Were you using μTorrent?

I'm really sorry that I can't give you a better answer. Perhaps someone else has another idea, but sometimes downloading the torrent again is the solution. Please, keep us updated on your progress. Good luck!

Another possibility would be for you to try re-downloading with a different torrent client. So if you used uTorrent, use for example BitComet next time. Or if you used BitComet, use uTorrent now. You get the idea.
