What are you trying to install? My crystall ball is a bit hazy today and my ouiji board is on the fritz.
How did you install it? Did you use Delphy's installation tool? If so, it should work like a charm on .package files.

It does on the .package files, but I mean on the houses.

Double click to install. Houses are notorious for not showing up. I end up deleting them from the download folder, the DCBackup, deleting the scriptcache file and then uninstalling with the launcher. I then install them again and hope to God they show up. 2 out of 3 do. It's typical: The sims 2 installer was so awful, tools were invented to install sims2packs. Hopefully someone will come along and make one for sims3packs. :/

Please use proper English here. :) Not chat speak and such.
Find the file in your mydocuments>electronic arts>sims3>downloads folder. Then I try to find the lot in the DCBackup folder. I sort by date. If something doesn't show up, I can immediately go to that folder and find the file by date. I then delete the scriptcache.package file (don't worry, the game regenerates this file). I then fire up the launcher and see if I can delete it with the launcher too.
Then I try to reinstall. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. The game stores data in so many places, it seems almost impossible to nuke all the files.
