It says that it can't locate CD-ROM. And I think it's for running the game.

And what happens if you use the Autorun.exe instead...?

I suspose problem is in AutoRun.exe so solution could be to run alternative installer that runs setup.

I think so that it's something with AutoRun, but it also happens in other releases of FF.

OK, could you maybe show us a screenshot if that specific error message you are getting ?

Most probably Family Fun is (partially) installed.
Remove with Unnstall
Install again

As error-message contains "LOCALE" it could mean a language problem.
Game is f.e. in English and you are trying to install Family Fun in Chinese.

Well, I don't have Family Fun in Programs & Features. And I don't think there's a problem with location - I have installed all my games in English and this window appears before language selection.

Check the register

1. Press Windowskey + R
2. Type regedit in the window
3. Click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
4. Click on Wow6432Node
5. Click on SOFTWARE
6. Click on EA Games
7. See which packs are installed
8. Delete Family Fun (or whatever expansion you have problems with)
9. Close the register
10. Re-boot your computer

Try to install now

I don't have any registry keys for Family Fun. Well, I think I'm just unlucky.

Since the OP mentioned that the game was never even installed in the first place, there won't be any registry entries either. Though of course it can be helpful to have a quick look in case of false memories (on the user side); or the like.

Yes, at that point I'm not sure what is happening on your end or what else to suggest. It could be something Windows-related.  Maybe you could use the SecuROM removal-tool that I mentioned in this topic

Other than that, you extracted the contents of Family Fun Stuff into a folder, right ? Could you show us a screenshot from the inside of the folder, from where you are trying ti run the setup ?

Error message: Unable to locate Sims2SP1.exe.
This file should be in the Folder TSBin of the download but is not required for the installation. Must however be copied by the install to your installation folder.
Check for the folder TSBin in the download - did you have any error-messages whilst unpacking with Winrar ?

You start the installation with EA AutoRun.exe in the root-folder of the download.
