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. I downloaded it from Worthplaying.com, US version. Any ideas?
I have a uk version of the world adventures, and purchased my sims 3 from a company based in the channel islands and have the same problem. Ea need to resolve this for us as we should have the freedom to purchase our games from different suppliers without worrying about imcompatibility problems. In my 30 years of gaming I have never had a problem like this before! If you look at the back of world adventures it merely states that we need "The Sims 3" and does not mention anything about regions.

When you get region error go to start then run type in regedit then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE then Software then The Sims 3 then click SKU change the number 1 to 2-7 then hit okay, leave the reg editor open until you have finished installing everything then change it back to its original number hit okay exit then game on.
In case you didn't understand the above ppost.

Hey simmers! I seem to be having the same regional code problem. I was able to find my registry editor, the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE sectoin, and the subfolder SOFTWARE, but I can't seem to find SIMS under the SOFTWARE section. Any suggestions?
PS: I was able to find a subfolder call Sims under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/CLASSES but the files that I find under Sims 3 are (Default) and URL Protocol. Could these be it?
