Couldn't extract RAR archive.

Post by Salvioner on Fri 12 Feb 2016, 16:32

Hello!

I'm trying to install The Sims 4 following the instructions on the *MUST READ* post. I downloaded the main game files but as i try to extract them (with 7-zip) i get a "cyclic redundancy check" failure. That happens while unzipping 'setup3.cab' which is one of the required files for installing the game, while the other files are unzipped correctly.

Here:

i found a solution to a similar problem, where it was suggested to extract the files with WinRAR: i tried that but i got the same problem. I'd like to know if it's possible to get just the 'setup3.cab' file instead of downloading again the full 8Gb archive from another torrent client, as suggested in the topic i mentioned above.

Thanks for your time!

Hello and welcome to the forum @salvioner,

Do you still have the torrent running in your torrent client (as "seeding") ? If yes, right-click on it and choose "STOP". After that right-click on it again and select "Force re-check". Wait until it's done, and at the end, try re-extracting again with WinRAR. See how it works this time. Good luck !

And it reminds us of the importance to let torrents running in the client, even after it has finished downloading. Very Happy  Have fun for now, and feel free to open a new topic again anytime you need more support. Problem solved, topic closed.
