Are you sure you downloaded a G4TW copy or did you get it elsewhere ?

1. Open the Registry by pressing Windows key + R
2. Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
3. Open SOFTWARE
4. In 64-bits Windows open WOW6432Node
5. Scroll down to the folder Sims and open it
6. Open The Sims 3

Now you see - in the righthand window - under Install Dir the location of the installed The Sims 3 Complete Collection

It says 
'windows cannot find "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE". Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.'

Keep Windowskey pressed down and type R.
In the window type regedit and click on OK
Now you'll see HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

I see you haven't received a reply yet.

Do you see any information next to "Install Dir"? I'll show you a screenshot so it's hopefully easier to understand:

This is what it looks like for me. Do you see any install path, on your end?

As for "the installer being Chinese/Japanese"...that sounds familiar. Did you maybe install any software lately, that has anything to do with these languages? Not sure how to fix that. Maybe (in Windows 10) under System settings -> Region and Language -> Administrative Language settings -> Language for non-Unicode programs -> Change system locale.
