Launcher asking me to enter the registration code...

Post by jessicarharris on Mon 30 Sep 2013, 16:03



This is what keeps popping up. I installed the base game from this website, I don't have any other expansion packs installed as I just want this one. I installed the game by following the installation guide then downloaded the fix to update to the latest version of the base game, however this keeps happening. I searched the forum and saw that this has happened to others and I've done what you've suggested to them but with no luck. Any other ideas?? Thanks, Jessica.

Hello there,

The so-called "Ultimate fix", available from here basically allows you to play the game without having to insert a physical DVD (or a virtual image of such a disc). However, in order to use this, you will need to have at least one of the following expansions installed:
Movie Stuff, Island Paradise, University Life, 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff, Seasons, Supernatural, Diesel Stuff, Katy Perry Sweet Treats, Showtime, Master Suite Stuff, Pets, Town Life Stuff, Generations.


I strongly suggest you download and install at least one of these, then you do the steps from #2 to #4 here, and you should be fine: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly


It's not possible to have just the base game installed; the Ultimate fix from here doesn't work then. But good luck and let us know how it went !
