rar files

Post by rich499 on Sat 05 Jan 2013, 02:03

how do you install a sims expansion with rar files. I used winzip and created a folder for it but I dont see any iso file to mount to start the install. If someone can shed some light on how to do this step by step, where to put the files you extract, etc. im lost, Thank You!

Also im not even sure if i am installing the expansions right I am mounting them than installing them after that I am not sure what to do

There isn't an ISO to burn, for most of them. You extract the files then run the setup. Easiest way to do this is right click the rar file and select the "Extract to (foldername)\ " option, then go into that folder and double click the appropriate file to get setup going.

Depends on what you install, however re-doing steps 3 and 4 from that guide never hurt.
