Hi! How are you installing the CC? Are they .sims3pack or .package files? Are you installing them using the launcher after you copy them to the downloads folder (inside of "The Sims 3" at your "Documents' folder) in case of .sims3pack or are you copying the new files to the "Mods/Packages" folder inside of your "The Sims 3" folder inside of your "Documents"?

It does NOT make a difference if you have the Origin or "Installed from Disk" version, since Mods and CCs are supposed to be installed inside of your "Documents" folder and not your "Program Files".

Did you do any further preparation? Please let's know, so we can give further assistance.
