You don't have to do anything as far as mounting it. You just have to go into the file and follow the directions listed in the file. =)

Also, this link might help.

it won't open the file. I'm redoing it and it now says it's .rar I think it didn't work because I turned seeding off.

You have to extract the file using a program like winRAR. Do you have that downloaded?

Okay well just extract the files with winRAR and then follow the installation guide and you should be all set to go.

I had the same problem. Double click the .file and it should ask you what program you want to open it with. Select any software that can open .RAR files and you're good to go :3

Yeah somethings for some odd reasons .rar's normally seems to get change to .file when downloading/torrenting, all you need to do is right-click and rename, and put .rar at the end overwriting the .file part.

Hello,

Not any software please, only use winRAR for G4TW downloads since that's what was used to pack them up in the first place. Another software might mess up the files and cause installation issues.

No idea if this is the right place (sorry!) first time posting as I need help!. I installed season successful on mac and when I open the sims the icon in my dock is the seasons one but one the loader is open the little icon is not down the bottom with the others and when I load the game the loading screen is still supernatural (my last installed expansion) and there is NO season content to be seen in my game. Help?
