I bought both games from Amazon: The Sims 3 and the expansion pack World Adventures. Installed the Sims 3 but the expansion pack says regional code error. My system is Windows 8 so I'm not getting any solutions when searched. Please help! I've waited so long for the games to arrive to get this problem now.

The US is in region 1 and you are probably in region 4. Some DVD's are coded region 0 which allows them to be played in any region. This was probably the case with the game DVD. I looks like the expansion pack was codded region 1.

The DVD in your computer can be changed to region 1. But, you are only allowed to change the region 5 times. After the 5th time you are stuck with the last region you coded. You should keep this in mind if you are buying games/DVDs via the internet/internationally.

Good Luck
