installing Sims2 expansion pack help

  cliff100 11:19 03 Mar 2010

My Daughter is running a PC with Vista and wants to play the game SIMS2. We have loaded the main game and then we need to load the expansion packs, I have found the order they need loading and when I try to install the first one and get as far as entering the serial codes. The next screen asks what folder the gae should be installed in ; it gives me an example e.g EA games/ open for business. I click next and it just comes up with quit install yes or No.
No takes me back to the last screen I then enter another folder location but get the same problem. I have been on the Sims web site and can not find anything to help. Has anyone got any ideas.
Thanks Cliff
