Rightclick on the downloaded .rar file
Choose extract to ...... (name of the .rar file)
You now get a new folder with again that same name
Open that folder and install from there.

Hello, and welcome to the forum,  Very Happy
it may be due to outdated drivers. What graphics card you have? Or you can download Nvidia Gefore Experience that will keep you graphics drivers up todate.

You can ignore that, but looking at your launcher, there is no need to update. You are already at patch level 1.67.xx and it's not recommended to update any further.

I've merged your topic to your existing topic. I know that it's technically not the same problem, but we like to keep individual users' problems in 1 topic, as long as the first one isn't closed yet.

But back to business, looking at your system specs, you may have trouble running the complete game. You do meet the system requirements for TS3, but it get's a bit more difficult with each pack you add. You may want to have a look at these topics in case you experience any in-game problems.
