Are you trying to extract part one as soon as you've downloaded it? That's never going to work.

Please follow our tutorial. If the download still fails, disable adblock and/or try another browser.

Please download a new version of WinRAR or 7-zip from the links provided in the beginning of the installation tutorial.

What I do is put the 5 files in an empty folder, and then extract the files to that folder using the .exe file.

This usually works for me.

That is exactly what I've written in the installation tutorial as well. ;)

hi all

right I downloaded all the 5 files plus the DEF file.

I put all 6 into a folder I created on my desktop.

I then double clicked the promods-v198.exe file which gave me this popup error which I have shown you with my screenshot

before anybody asks yes I have the latest WINRAR and latest 7zip

what am I doing wrong here please

What is the double-click action on this EXE file: run or extract? If it is "extract", then that's the problem. Make sure you "run" the program...

Otherwise, you can try to unpack the other four packages manually.
