Hello and welcome to the forum @ying3718!

Did you use WinRAR for extracting the contents of the download? And have you also applied the patches (from the earlier expansions), that are mentioned in the included installation guide?

I extracted it using 7zip. Yes I install the earlier expansions following the steps mentioned in the installation guide.

Do you still have the torrent in your torrent client, under "seeding"? Right-click on it and choose STOP. Right-click again and choose "force re-check". This will take a while to complete, but when it's done, try re-extracting again - with WinRAR. Smile

No, I dont have any torrent seeding in my torrent client. 
Tried 'force re-check' and found that checking status stopped at 99.5% (I've tried for 3 times).
And i re-extract it with WINRAR but it comes out file corrupted messages. Why God. Why God.
Why is it so difficult to install? No shit, Sherlock.

Have a look at the tab Files in Utorrent
When there still are files with less then 100% extracting will result in error messages.

Indeed, in the case of Games4theworld's TS2 Complete Collection you can't start extracting/installing unless you got 100% of the download finished. Smile  

When you e.g. download music or videos and you're really impatient, you can set the priority of individual files, so that files within that torrent having a higher priority, will finish first. But since the TS2 torrent from us consists of just one single .RAR file, you can't start the installation "beforehand".
