Toddler Update File Corruption Upon Extraction [SOLVED]

Post by Pid on Thu 06 Jul 2017, 03:16

Hey guys. First time posting and hoping to figure some stuff out!
I've searched the forum for this exact issue (though no more than like 10 pages) and read similar issues but have not found anything like this one.. If there is a solved thread exactly like this one please let me know. 

I downloaded and installed Sims 4 with the first two expansions quite some time ago and just checked back a few days ago to get the latest expansions. I know how to install everything properly, never had to do anything with anti-virus so I do not think that is the problem.
 
I use WinRar to extract files and have not experienced any issues until the update. Everything else downloads/installs just fine but when I use WinRar to install the update by extraction, I get this error message:
"\Documents\Vuze Downloads\The Sims 4 Update v1.29.69.1020.zip: Either multipart or corrupt ZIP archive"

The update downloads just fine but when trying to extract/install the files to my computer, the folder is instantly marked with a problem and WinRar will not extract it.  Why.

Repairing the file did not work. I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling all of the games twice, which took about 6 hours or more. Keep encountering the same problem when I get to the toddler (etc) update.  Kind of at my wits end with this one. The only thing I can think of is the anti-software thing but I have no idea why this would be the only file being effected/corrupted. I also want to just try to skip the update, but I assume that would cause many more problems and probably won't even work and I really don't want to have to uninstall and reinstall all over again.  

Also tried just opening it with windows before one of the reinstalls and the game gave me an error when trying to open; would not launch.. unfortunately I forgot what the error was, probably something along the lines of corrupted file. Another thing I tried was to re-download the actual file several times and that didn't work either. I hope I make sense to people who are actually tech savvy..


Please help!!!

Also, since perhaps it was quite some time since you last update, you could check to see if the folders are excluded properly. Or if you'd like, to turn off the windows defender and anti-virus. 


And I know it's not related but try using a different torrent client to download the files and make sure you have access to the downloads location as well.

As
Tarac mentioned above, all of our downloads can be found there. Do keep us updated.

Hey!
Thanks for the replies. I guess I should have mentioned, yes, I got all of my downloads from G4TW, before and now. I've also completely deleted all of my previous Sims stuff and re-did everything, so they should be all up-to-date. Windows Defender and anti-virus are off, re-downloading the update right now with a different torrent client. I hope this will work! I will let you guys know. Enjoying city life in the meantime! Thanks again.

Alright bad news: turned off all anti-virus & firewalls and got a trusted alternative torrent client that I've used before and I am still having the same problem. When opening the download for the Sims toddler update, WinRar will not extract (install) to my computer because of a "read error", the error listed in my first post. 

My process is 
(1)download from GFTW to torrent client ---> (2)open zipped file in WinRar ---> (3)Extract file to a new folder on desktop ----> (4)view instruction manual and copy and paste all items to the "program files (x86) the sims 4" folder ---> (5)Play

Maybe my process has flaws? Again, all the other games work perfectly fine, I am playing up to city live without problems at the moment. 
My issues with the update occur step 2 & 3.
Did not mention this before: when first opening in WinRar, I get this message "!Unexpected end of archive"
Then when closing that out, step three has the other issues I've already explained.. went more into detail this time for hopes of someone being able to find a small error in my process.
That being said, any other suggestions? Any help is already appreciated!

Any error message in Winrar implicates that the .rar file is not correct.
Unexpected end of Archive means the file is not complete.

Instead of extracting it to desktop, perhaps you could instead move the .rar file first and choose extract here instead? I usually copy mine to an external disk and left the original one in D drive for seeding purposes.


If not, I can give you a direct link to download instead for the Vampire update till Fitness and see if you are able to extract them.

Honestly the second option sounds a bit easier on this side, only because I do not know how to extract without WinRar. I could buy some blank discs, but as Tarac says I think it's somehow an issue with the actual file.. I am not sure why it is corrupt for me or if that is even possible but a direct link may be better for everyone because I am sure nobody wants to teach me how to do it any other way.
Thanks so much for the replies so far, I feel like we are at least in the right direction!

Hi @Pid ,

Sorry if this is late. Here are the links though they are still zipped up. Do tell us if you are able to extract them.



Vampire + Toddler -> Download
Parenthood -> Download
Fitness -> Download

Hello, i try again to download the file from de toodlers.

If i open normally, it apears that error.
As it did not work, I clicked with the right mouse button and went to the "Open as" part, and had the windows explorer option. I carried it and it opened. I do not understand why.

Hmm. It's odd that you guys could not extract from the original torrent itself. How exactly did the both of you extract them?

I tested my link and able to extract them. What do you mean windows explorer? Did you try double clicking the file or right-click and choose extract to ?

Is your anti-virus 'active' ? If yes, it might delete some files inside while downloading.
The windows explorer option only appears if it's .zip though since I've tested with .rar and nothing appears.

My only suggestion is to download again and see if it manages to extract properly this time. Perhaps another unrar program?

For the future please open a topic on your own instead of posting under someone else's thread. Smile  It would get too 'crowded' if too many different people posted in one and the same thread, even though it seems the issues are the same or similar.

Hey!!
It works!! Not sure why it didn't occur to me, but I just got a different unrar(unzip) program as suggested above and the update works wonderfully! My Windows program wouldn't open it correctly and the WinRar program wouldn't either, so if anyone else has this issue in the future I suggest getting an unzipper program just for the update. THANK YOU GUYS SOOOO MUCH <3<3<3
Will absolutely recommend!!
