Sims 3 - Regional code for expansion/main game



Issue

  • I have Sims 3 instaled on my PC and wanted to install the expansion game. The problem is that the expansion come with another regional code that doesn't coincide with the main game.
  • The expansion set is for Europe and the main game is for the US.
  • I need help and change the regional code.

Solution

  • Go to Start > Run > type "regedit" to open the registry editor.
  • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/SIMS/IMS 3.
  • On the right you will see a file called SKU,
  • Double click to edit and replace the hex value displayed by 2.
  • Save your settings and restart your PC
  • Try to install the game expansion again.
