I think it's because Steam games get installed in a different directory than other games you'll install. I'm not entirely sure about that though, so I'd wait for Admin's reply. He'll probably be more help than me.

Hello,

Indeed, when you install the game via Steam, your PC won't recognize it as a separate game.
Please uninstall the Steam version and download our version of the base game. Install it using your retail code (not that it makes a difference, but OK).

Everything you need to know, including how to update manually, can be found here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
