"Cannot execute" Error When Installing. [SOLVED] Empty "Cannot execute" Error When Installing. [SOLVED]

Post by minniemoo on Wed 19 Sep 2018, 23:52

I am using Windows 10 Home.  64bit OS, 8GB RAM, 2.7GHz Intel, and ~30GB memory free.

I downloaded The Sims 3 Complete Collection.rar into a folder in C drive (not Program Files, but another folder I created for my games)

I opened it up using Winrar.

Everything seems to be there.

I go straight to the folder called The Sims 3.

I double-click Sims3Setup.exe.

It begins to install.

20 minutes later, it gets to 99%.

Then I get the following error: Cannot execute

**UPDATE**

I moved the whole thing over to Program Files (x86) just in case, but same error.

Hello and welcome to the Forum,

One thing you can try is go under 
C:\Users\(your Windows account username)\AppData\Local\Temp. Delete ALL items inside the Temp folder, but not the actual folder itself.

You also need to mark the option that un-hides hidden folders here:

After that, try un-packing with WinRAR again.

Also, it's an idea to remove files or uninstall programs that you do not want or need anymore, from your C:\ drive.

That worked!  Thank you!  But now I am having a slew of other issues.  I made another post for those.
