Your setup is not correct and will not be expected to work that way.

In your TS user game folder, that would be (user name)\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3, there needs to be a folder called Mods. Inside of Mods will be three and only three things, a folder named Packages, a folder named Overrides, and the Resource.cfg file.

You have these three things and their contents inside of an unwanted subfolder called "Framework Setup." That is the incorrect part, and that folder has to go away with its contents, the Mods folder, moved up one level first.

The end results should look exactly like the illustrations here.

The problem is the FrameworkSetup folder, which you don't need to have.  Your Mods folder should sit just inside your game folder, where FrameworkSetup currently is; the path will look like this:

Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\resource.cfg
Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages\ [your .package files]

Edit:  Oh hi, igazor, didn't see you there.

(ermph) Carefully removes puzzlez's elbow from my nose.

That's okay, I'm used to this by now (and was AFK/Away From Keyboard for over an hour there...)  :)

Yeah, sorry about that. It must not have been pleasant, as I'm known for having particularily sharp elbows.

An entire hour away from your keyboard, you say?  (Speaking of unpleasant.)  I do hope everything's alright, and that your alien brethren weren't too hard on you for breaking your cover in that other thread.  I can only imagine how much a pain it would be to have to sit through a lecture delivered from a couple dozen light-years away.
