Hello @tricia5 and welcome to the Forum,

Have you tried the program "WinRAR" for extracting the contents of the .rar file (that you downloaded)? You can download the program alongside all other Games4theworld releases here:

Was the download completed 100% in your torrent client? (have to ask this, you would be surprised how many people tried installing the game without it being fully downloaded...)

Hi there,


Try checking if your windows installer is running. 


  • Go to Start and type services.msc in the search box.
  • A list will pop up and under Services (local) scroll down to windows installer -> Right click -> Properties.
  • A pop up will appear and under the General tab, see 'Startup Type'. If it's disabled, set it to Manual and try running the .exe again.

If it's already on manual, you need to run an anti-virus scan and check to see if there's any malware hidden in your pc. Though, doing so will trigger our downloads as virus as well as other 'cracked' games that you have.
