World Adventures Installation Guide (Regional Code)

Post by xSkeviousx on Sun 15 Jul 2012, 05:01

I may have worded that wrong but I'll just explain. I bought the Sims 3 Deluxe long ago along with late night. But sadly i lost the ambitions disc, and when my computer was hit with a nasty virus i had to reformat my hard drive so Im trying to reinstall, I am currently looking for ambitions disc but i got bored and found this on thepiratebay, then i got a little greedy and downloaded the other expansions that i didnt buy. I didnt download the Sims 3 the original from you guys because i already have the disc didnt download late night either.

To the point!
I installed the sims 3 using my disk and its code. Everything runs properly. I read the How to install sims 3 correctly and decided that the alternate method would be easier. I installed Katy Perry Sweet treats, did not use # crack or anything just left it. Then step 3 is where is i get stuck!
It would appear that I have a different regional code than World Adventures does...I find it odd that Katy Perry installed properly with no problems but World Adventures is having trouble. I tried to read the installation guide but honestly it was a bit gibberish to me I didnt see why all that needed to be done....soooo I read other posts and its the Sku file....thats all fine and dandy but my question now is if i am using my sims 3 disk do i still have to do all the patching and stuff? that is in step 3? Also i have not read the installation guides of the other expansions but if they have patches also is it for the sims 3 game itself or the expansion?

Hello,

No you don't need to do any of what you find written in the installation guide, since it's obsolete, except for the instructions to change SKU. We all need to do that prior to installing WA and again if you wanted to install Outdoor Living Stuff.

I'm having the same problem with the regional code, EXCEPT: I can get to
the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ but under the software, the sims 3
isn't there. I have the disk for the sims 3. Do I need to install other
expansion packs first?

Hello,

No, try to find the entry here in stead: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Sims > The Sims 3
