You are not trying to unrar the setup.cab files I hope ?
Just click on The Sims_4_Setup.exe to start the installation.

If it is the download itself that you cannot extract, rightclcik on the download in your torrent-client (like f.e. utorrent) and clcik on force control.

Make sure you use Winrar and not 7-zip

Nope. This error is just while extracting the whole downloaded file. If I ignore this error and try to install the Sims 4, I get an error with the missing setup1.cab.

And yes, I'm using winrar. It's not the latest version though. Does it matter?

Also I tried the force control on Torrent and still the same.

I have just re-downloaded it and no problems extracting the .rar.
Try another download-agent (I used bittorrent).
