No, I mean Windows Explorer. You can access it Windows 7 by going through Start>All Programs>Accessories, or by right clicking on the Start button and choosing 'Run Windows Explorer'.

Open the CD through Windows Explorer and double click on the setup.exe file.

Okay, something is going on with both Freetime and Nightlife.
Nightlife still only goes to 26% and doesn't do anything after that.
Freetime goes to 50% and then a pop-up says there's a problem. I retried a lot of times, but it still isn't operating right.

I will try it through explorer.

UPDATE:
Now Freetime is only going to 37% before it says it has a problem.
It says there's a problem with transfering the file TSData\Res\Sound\Sfx1.package

Are you installing the games in random order? That might have something to say for the troubles you seem to be having.

I always install my games in order (list here: http://compsimgames.about.com/od/expansionpacks/qt/sims2_exporder.htm)
In theory it keeps the previous EPs patched (it checks whether the games are patched/updated while installing). Not installing them in order should work too, but it's a bit safer to install in order.

Have you set the games to run in XP compability-mode? I had to do it on my laptop (it has Win7 too).

I've run avast on my desktop computer, and it has never bugged with my game as far as I know...

I tried to install them all in order, but I skipped the ones that had problems installing. I have everything installed except Nightlife, Freetime, and Apartment Life. Those ones all seem to have something going on with them.

Also, I haven't set my games to XP mode. How is that done?

Right-click the icon (preferably the EXE file) and choose "preferences", then "compability". Click "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and choose "Windows XP (service pack 3)".

Not entirely sure if it's enough with the current exe or if you have to do it on all the exe files. I did it on all, just in case...

Okay, I did XP mode for all of the EPs that are already installed.
I can't do it for Nightlife, Freetime, or Apartment Life because they're not installed and when I go to the explorer path, there's no setup.exe

I tried Nightlife again, but now the darn thing is back to having AutoRun come up, and not going to anything at all when I click the AutoRun prompt. What the heck?

Should I try to uninstall SimPE? Might that help?

I don't know how SimPE would be causing that issue, but it wouldn't hurt to try.
