error when installing the sims 3 fix.

Post by django333 on Thu 04 Aug 2011, 07:04

At step 12 when I update my game I get the following error.

The setup has detected that the installed game region for this update is incorect.

This update requires a different game region in order to be installed.

Hello,
This can be fixed by changing the SKU version. Here's how its done:
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.

Now try updating again.
Please let us know if this works and don't hesitate to post if you run into other problems.
