Having Trouble Installing Expansion Packs

Post by howrseluver13 on Sat 03 Nov 2012, 16:07

I am following the instillation guide in the downloads but I can't seem to find SIMS 3 under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software

I installed it all correctly so then what am I doing wrong? PLEASE HELP!

Hello,

See if you can locate it here: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Wow6432Node > Sims > The Sims 3.

No there is nothing there either.

I have Electronic Arts/Sims 3/Launcher but there is nothing related to what is in the Notepad.

Hello,

Where did you get the base game?
You only have to change the SKU value if you get a "region code" error during the installation of World Adventures or Outdoor Livingstuff. You can avoid it by installing Outdoor Livingstuff before World Adventures.

I got the base game from games4theworld . org and followed the instructions in the video's posted in the Extras.

And if I only have to change it if I get an error than I won't bother with it yet since I haven't gotten an error yet.

I might need more help.. I tend to be a needy person when it comes to downloading torrents and games so I thank you for your help right now and hope I don't become to bothersome xD

//EDIT

Now that I have gotten all that set up, I am having troubles again. I am
following the guide so I don't know what is going wrong but I am trying
to download the Cracks in the Crack 3 folder for World Adventures and
it keeps telling me "The Setup has detected that the installed game
region for this update is incorrect.

This update requires a different game region in order to be installed"

What is going on now!
