how do you want to open this type of file?

Post by diamondsinmud on Tue 16 May 2017, 12:22

I'm downloading everything from scratch, i followed each step and my files have all finished downloading in uTorrent. 


but my files didn't save into any specific folders or anything.. and this is all i have belonging to the game 


and of course when i click them it just says "how do you want to open this type of file?"


yes i followed all the instructions and i have no security on this laptop (i uninstalled mcAfee & turned off Windows Defender)

You need Alzip or something similar to unzip all the files. I usually use ALzip though but I think most recommend WinRar?

oh no. there's no need to re-download. after you install winrar there's an option to extract files here when you right click on the .rar file.  Very Happy

That's Microsoft Visual C++. It should auto install. Does it stops the installation?

It's okay don't worry about it. Have you installed everything? Up till the newest one? And also check if you have move the Sims 4 folder out of Electronic Arts folder.

Hi! Sorry for disappearing, i had some personal stuff to deal with. Have you tried the temporary fix that was uploaded recently? I too had the loading screen problem after moving houses and applying the fix did the trick.  Very Happy
