PostSubject: [solved]Adobe Reader won't let me download certain things?!   Mon Nov 05, 2012 6:12 am

I've been trying to download Hair, Clothes, and other items onto my sims 2 game, but each time I open a items from certain sites, Adobe Reader will not allow me to read the file. It says

"It is not a supported file type, or because the file has been damaged."

If there is anything I am doing wrong, then please let me know. I have looked around, and none of the other programs will bring these downloads up. Could someone please help me?

You need to install a opening software such as 7-Zip. Then right click on your downloaded file and either Extract All or Open with 7-zip. 7-zip will open both rar and zip files.

Hi docs, sorry for the late reply. Here's how to extract:
1. Download and install 7-Zip on your computer.
2. With zip files, right-click on the file and select "Extract All" as shown below.

Spoiler:
 

3. With Rar files, right-click on the file and select "7-Zip" and from the drop-box select "Extract Files" as shown below.

Spoiler:
 

I hope that helps you out a little.

Cinda/Pierre, are there instructions how to utilize the Clean Installer? When I check my files I have some Pink and mayby a Red. Does red mean it's a bad file and should I get rid of it? I also notice that I may have a Pink and then just above it, is the same file, so I delete the file that is highlighted in Pink. Is that okay?

I'm not sure if I'm using the Clean Installer correctly. I delete a lot of dup files. bounce

Yes, the pink files mean they are duplicate files so they are okay to delete. The red files mean that it is a hack or object that could cause conflict with your game, but not necessarily bad.
