SKU? Empty SKU?

Post by Layloria on Fri 05 Sep 2014, 11:11

Hello,

I remember awhile ago, G4TW used to have a guide for SKU, I know EA got rid of regional codes but Base game and World Adventures still have the codes. Is this a SKU fix? I couldn't find one anywhere but I think its to help regional codes. I found someone with the problem and hopefully its done correctly.


"""" Start Menu, Search for: regedit , it should look like a cube breaking into smaller cubes. Open it and you will need to drop down the arrow for Computer, then HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, SOFTWARE
If you have 64bit computer then the files will be under WOW6432NODE
Then look for SIMS, not Electronic Arts or EA.

Click on The Sims 3, a list on the right screen should appear, look for SKU.
Now go to World Adventures and look at its SKU. Check a few others they should have SKU values of 1 or 2.

If your Sims 3 SKU is different than 1 or 2 then you may want to change it. Your World Adventures should be 1 or 2 so thats not a problem, if its not change it to 1 or 2.

Mine is base game bought and its SKU 7 and World Adventures is SKU 2 (g4tw). """"

Thank you for this.
This is used mostly for World Adventures, and is included in the torrents Instructions file.

Hello Layloria,


To elaborate on what Shamrock said, if you encounter an error with the installation (!!!) of "World Adventures", then you "only" need to change the SKU of the base game. In most cases, you need to change it to either 1 or 2. 


As you cannot install World Adventures, you cannot "go to World Adventures and check the SKU"... Wink  Just changing the SKU of the base game should be a pretty easy and quick fix - if done correctly.

Hello,

Thanks guys!
If you have already edited my original post, thanks for that too! I'll remember it for next time. Check torrent file instruction (rar) or change base game to 1 or 2.
I thought they couldn't open the game because of the conflicting version not that they couldn't install it. I'll also make sure to say just base game.

Thanks again!
