Destination Path Too Long. [SOLVED]

Post by ObessiveFan on Wed 01 Mar 2017, 01:31

When I tried to extract the Sims 3 complete collection files, It comes up with this message and I don't know what to do. If I hit cancel it will cancel the extraction and I cant play the game, if I hit skip, it might not extract that specific file and the game might not run right. Is there something else I can do?

Hello,


Welcome to the forum.
Are you extracting with WinRAR, and have you tried a different location on your PC? I always extract these things to a temporary folder on my desktop, since I don't need the extracted files after the installation anyway.

No, I'm extracting with a program called 8 zip lite. I haven't tried to extract into a difference folder but Its the same folder I extract everything else into.

Since we are using WinRAR for packing the releases, you should use the same program, to unpack them. Smile  You can get WinRAR from the download-site here:

For G4TW release you should always use WinRAR. Smile  That said, have fun and feel free to open a new topic anytime again if you need more support! Problem solved, topic closed.
