View Full Version : I get this error thing when trying to install RAR pack
15th May 2008, 3:53 PM
Well, I put the RARs into a new folder in WINDOWS, I click the file and pick install all but then I get an error message saying "Was not able to blah blah blah"
Yeah sorry I know but I have read thought the whole guide to that clean installer but it cant help me. I am running on vista but can that be the problem?...*sigh*
is there any way to make these files into a not stupid rar thing install?. I downloaded another pack and it worked right away without installing this program.

i think you need this thread:

The error didn't say "Was not able to blah blah blah." It had an actual error text that didn't say "blah blah blah" and if you'd actually provide that error text, we might have a chance at helping you.

Okay...so I have the files in downloads and collections now....it doesn't say what to do next..I`ve tried to install them with clean installer but that doesn't work...they didn't show up in the game....
I can post my error, just saying before..my computer is in Swedish.
EDIT: I just noticed something, for somereason they have the same icon as Sims2Pack Files, but them I click then they dont act like it...I wonder why...

Looks like some sort of security error. Doesn't look like it has anything to do with WinRAR though, and if you have already put your .package files in Downloads or Collections (depending on which they are) then that's all you need to do.Yeah, I am trying to figure oot whats wrong. Check my edited last post.
Anyway, I am installing some sort of other program...its taking a million years to download but I guess I have to wait if nothing else works.

think I solved it, I didn't have body shop installed XD

Actually, you already had Body Shop installed if you had the game installed, and installing it wouldn't have given you anything that you didn't already have.

no, I un installed bodyshop before :/

Yup body shop was the problem, fixed it now

If you have TS2 installed you can't uninstall just Body Shop. There's a downloadable version of Body Shop that was released before the game which is separate, but it's completely unnecessary (and can actually cause problems) if you have the game already installed.
