WINRAR is telling me the file is corrupt and unexpected end of archive?

Post by geethmo on Wed 19 Aug 2015, 15:41

I downloaded winrar because someone said not to use 7zip, but when I tried to extract the files it opened up a box with the folowing error messages;




    C:\Users\USER\Downloads\TS4_temporary_update.part1.rar: Checksum error in Data\Client\ClientDeltaBuild0.package. The file is corrupt
    C:\Users\USER\Downloads\TS4_temporary_update.part1.rar: Unexpected end of archive


where do I go from here?

Try including rar files on your antivirus exclusion list.

You only unrar one of the parts. I did the first one. 1-4 was 850 and 5 was like 771.

My problem is that it's only downloading the files in about 500 mb each. I already added the files to the exclusions list on my antivirus and downloaded them again... Hmm I guess I'll just have to wait until they put out the non-temporary fix files because i'v never had a problem with the regular ones they put out.

Hi there, @geethmo! Very Happy

If your RAR files are below the size they should be (850 MB and around 800 for Part 5), then there was a problem with the download and they are corrupted now. The only way to fix that is to re-download them.
You can try some things like just downloading one-by-one, or using a different browser, until the parts are all complete. You should be able to extract them then with no problems. Alternatively, you can wait until the Ultimate Fix is released as a single file and as a torrent, maybe the download will be easier then.

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

Ok, I downloaded the files one at a time and that seemed to fix it! I unziped the files an put them in the folder where I keep the fix files and now I'm applying the fix so hopefully everything goes smoothly!
