Question Can't open .rar files - installer Name param is missing
Hey everybody!
I'm having a problem trying to open and extract files from a .rar file.

When I click on it I get a pop-up message that says, "Installer Name param is missing" whatever the heck that means.

Anybody out there have a solution to my problem? I really would like to open those files!!

Thanks in advance for any help!

Download and install and use the evaluation version of RarSoft WinRAR 4.11 to extract it.

Where did you get that .rar file from, and what does it contain?

Thanks for your help!
Hello,
That worked great! I got the file from a friend through Mediafire.com.
It contained some videos. Why do you ask?

I had a reason for asking, but you can disregard that now.

WinRAR has resolved your issue, so you can click the "Mark Solved" button in the upper left of the webpage.
