Install Issues - invalid game region. [SOLVED]

Post by quisilor on Tue 09 Sep 2014, 11:01

Hi there,

I recently DL your versions of the sims 3 and expansions from TPB, As I needed to do a full reinstall. I installed the base Sims3 with no trouble, tested and it worked, created a sim etc.
I went to start instlaling the expansions and red the instructions on WA, Loft Stuff then Ambitions.

However when I attempted to follow:

Now open the Start menu. Type 'regedit' in the search box and press [ENTER]. Navigate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sims\The Sims 3   and double-click on 'SKU'. Change the shown
number to 2 and press 'OK'. Close the Register Editor.

I was unable to as there is no Sims\Sims 3 located there ??

So I tried proceeding to the next step of the install copied and replaced the files. Then when I moved onto Step 3 to proceed with the updates, Now open the 'Crack 3' folder and start the 'Sims3_1.2.7.00002_from_1.0.631.00002.exe'
patch. I did this but was presented with this message :

Setup has deteced that the installed game region for this update is incorrect. This update requires a different game region in order to be installed.

So I am at a loss ... any advice would be greatly appreciated, thank you

The path into the Registry can be a bit different.

Try this one : 
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Sims\The Sims3


I'd suggest you put back the two original files you replace from the Crack folder as you can't update on a crack Smile

And don't forget to update to 1.67 at the end Smile
