    You usually want to use the program of the oldest expansion pack
    installed on your system.

    Sims 2 Deluxe (Double Deluxe?) installs The Sims 2 main game, and The
    Sims 2 Nightlife (according to the website.

    Since Nightlife is the oldest expansion you want to install that patch.

    If you really want to be sure, download the Sims 2 DVD patch, and run it,
    then install the Nightlife CD patch, the patches won't install if you
    download the wrong ones so you can't mess it up.

    Good luck,
