RAR files: Why cant they work for me?
« on: February 13, 2008, 06:29:01 am »
 I have never been able to convince my computer to play nice with RAR type compressed files. I have downloaded at least 2 different WinRar programs, each one several times. This just does not work in my world. The apps seem 2 install as they should and each time I get some error or another. It just puts me within inches of madness.

Is any1 willing to make Zip files for the remaining North American Sim Junkies GTL 2008 season. Id happily buy you a beer, and lead the pub in song about a 'jolly good fellow.'

Heres the link to winrar, take the one on top and try to install it.
It would also help if you could define more clearly what error messages you get?/when the problems occur?

Winrar is highly popular, very usable program so i would highly advice you to sort the problem instead of giving up. It will definitely save you from few future headaches if ya get it to work. :)

I'm detecting you might be fooled by this message?!: 

"Please note that winrar is not free software bla bla bla 40 days.. bla bla MUST buy licence or remove from computer."


Ehr.. after the 40 days.. i MUST not do anything... the damned thing still works without hitches..


Dont know if that is the "problem" you are seeing... so please elaborate if i have it wrong
