Hello,

No winRAR is fine.
Did you use the same file to install on another computer? And when you transferred it to that pc, did you transfer the RAR or the extracted files?

Hello,

Your pc probably isn't the problem, but there could be a problem with the download.
Did you download the same file twice on 2 different pc's? Perhaps this download went wrong.

Hi,

I don't know if it's any help, but I had this problem back when I tried to install The Sims (english version) on a PC with Windows XP (French Version)

Since you changed your language with Vistalizator, could it be causing this problem? This is just a suggestion.

Hello,

I don't see why buying a different OS is going to help solve this problem actually.
Ok try this video to help you install the game.

Hello,

I think you're not using the right .exe to install the game. It started to dawn on me when I read your last post. I found my copy of the file and it appears to me that you're attempting to run setup from one of the files in the "setup" folder.
Run it from "start.exe" in stead.
