Hello,
This problem is easily solved by changing the SKU. Here's how its done:
*When you're done installing the base game, 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.

Don't apply any cracks yet, use the ultimate fix for patching and cracking purposes.
Let us know if you run into any more problems.

Hello,
No you don't need to change it back.
G4TW recommends the game be installed in this order.

Hello,
Only change the SKU if the installer gives you an error about the game region.

Hello,
Yes you can install it just like that, you don't need the crack.

Hello,
You copied the crack to the wrong folder, or the wrong file to the right folder.
From the fix, you need to take the files found in the crack folder and paste them in the C:\program files\electronic arts\The Sims 3\game\bin folder.
In the installationguide (that came with the fix), this is step 14.
