Did you put your sims 3 into a custom folder?

Hello,
Try changing the SKU version. Its done as follows:
-Open "Start", type "regedit" in the search box and then press [ENTER].
-When you're in the Register Editor, navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Sims > The Sims 3 OR IT MAY BE IN:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Sims > The Sims 3 (Windows 7, Vista)
-Here you'll see a file called "SKU". Double click on it and change the value - which
should be "2" or "7" - to "1" and press "OK". Now close the Register Editor.
Try this, then execute the update.
Please let us know if this works and don't hesitate to post if you run into more problems.
