Hello,


That is usually caused by not using winRAR, can you say if you used winRAR, or some other program to extract the file you downloaded?

Hello there,

Can you kindly try re-extracting it using the steps described here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t16881-setupnew-setup-cpp-140-error-fix ?

Also, can you post a screenshot of the downloaded .RAR file opened in WinRAR?

Hello,


It's entirely possible that the files you've extracted have become corrupted.

Yes, sometimes (but only rarely) I get an endless saving loop too. No game is perfect I guess, and especially not The Sims 3. If it happens more often though, it could be a problem with the savefile.

Did you save your sim (family) into the "Bin", in Edit-town-mode, at some point ?
