Sims 3 game I bought straight from Origin wont install?

I bought an Sims 3 PC game straight from Origin as an Digital download and it wont install?

 

The game downloads onto my computer fine, the only problem is when I try to install it. First the installation page shows asking for language settings, when I select next, it exits back to the same 'My Games' page on origin, and says 'The Sims 3 game is ready to install'. I have repeated this process several times without success. I have also un-installed Origin and deleted the Sims 3 files from my computer and downloaded them again.

 

If anyone has any ideas or solutions to my problem they would be a massive help! All replys welcome! 

 

Thanks :smileyhappy:
