Updating problem/ Region error (PLEASE HELP!) for the sims 3

Post by cocoabutter on Thu 22 Jul 2010, 06:50

Hi,

I'm trying to update my Sims 3 game through the launcher,

Game update for: 1.14/2.9/3.5/ 4.2
and the update file is: SIms3_4.2.32.007001_from_4.0.87.006001,exe

but after it downloads, this pops up:

"The setup has detected that the installed game region for the update is incorrect
This update requires a different game region in order to be installed"

and sometimes it also says 'invalid file'

i
changed the SKU number of all the expansions and stuff packs (W.A,
HELS, Ambitions) to '2' including TS3 -like you asked me to, but i
still have the same problem :/

PLEASE HELP!
Thanks so much!

I have them all at "2" as well, but uh, I don't get the 4.2 update in the launcher. I tried downloading from another site but regardless what number I put into SKU->Ambitions Registry, I'd get a region error.

I wasn't aware the launcher had a new update.

Aww, but if you don't share with others, how are we to update, too? ):

Hello,

If you have Ambitions installed too, just reinstall Ambitions and you'll automatically have the latest version of the Game. So do it like this:

1. Uninstall Ambitions.
2. Restart your PC.
3. Reinstall Ambitions.
4. See if it works now.


- Thats what the admin said to do Smile
