Problem downloading World Adventures.

Post by meganellie on Tue 20 May 2014, 02:27

Okay, so I was trying to download World Adventures and this error keeps coming up: "The setup  has detected that the regional code for The Sims 3 is different then what this expansion requires. This product requires the The Sims 3 to have the same regional code in order to be installed."

I've read a few other threads and even the fix and none of it has helped me. I'm using Windows 8 so so some of the steps are kind of confusing since the instructions were made for PCs with the regular start menu. 

And also, I'm not exactly sure how to follow the installation guide itself since I'm not sure how to do the whole 'regedit' thing as well. 

Any help would be great and thank you in advance!

Hello and sorry for the late reply, Sad


Basically what the previous poster said...type the Windows key + R on your keyboard, and in the small window that pops up type regedit and hit enter. Now if you have a 64-bit Windows, go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Wow6432Node -> Sims -> The Sims 3. If your Windows is a 32-bit version though, the location is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Sims -> The Sims 3.


Under "The Sims 3", double-click on the SKU value on the right and change the number in the window that pops up to either 1 or 2, depending on what shows up. Good luck !

I'm having a problem installing WA too. I had to get a new hard drive so now I have to go through putting all this back on all over again and I remember having issues with WA last time too. I do own The Sims 3, could that be why it won't work for me??

If you cannot install "World Adventures" because of the "wrong region code"-error, then try the same solution I already described above. There is not much else to say, actually...
