Unable to change the SKU code for World Adventures download

Post by Aria_Winters on Tue 17 Jul 2012, 22:07

Hello!

So I was reading through the instruction guide/forum for World Adventures and it told me to double click on the SKU to 2 (step 2) I tried to do this, and every time I hit okay, something pops up saying "Cannot edit SKU: Error writing the value's new content".

I have installed the ultimate fix, and have downloaded Sims 3 Diesel SP and the Sims Medieval/Pirates and Nobles EP from this site. I also have installed from discs the base game, Ambitions, Generations, Late Night, Pets, Showtime, and HELS SP.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Smile

Admin edit: Moved.

Hello,

Sorry for the late reply!
Could you please post a screenshot of the value you're trying to edit? Maybe it's not the correct value.

In case anyone comes across this with the same problem, the fix is this- when you do the search for the registry edit, right-click the program and choose "run as administrator". I had the same issue not being able to change the value until I did this, then I was able to modify the number. GL to all.

After reading over these mess of an instruction, I have to ask

If the SKU number has to be changed to 1 and the instructions say to do that for everyone, and you have to us the SKU that was already uploaded here.

Why wasn't it just uploaded with it already changed to 1 in the first place?
there is no point in uploading a file that everyone has to change the same way, and then have people manually change it themselves!

Just upload the file already changed and avoid any unnecessary instructions.

I didn't have to change it with any of my several installations, but to note, people all over the WORLD use this site, and the SKU is for areas, so some people might have to do more changes.

It's what they could get their hands on asap after the release, so instead of having to wait several extra days to get a copy that didn't have a issue, they decided to release it with the extra step.

Also, some of the info becomes outdated easily, and since it's with a torrent, they have no way of updating it, they could have a link to a page for UP TO DATE info, but that would probably just end up confusing more people.
