Lightbulb The Sims 3: World Adventures regional install code issue.

The other day when I tried to install The Sims 3: World Adventures I got the following "error" message:






I couldn't believe it. What fucking sick joke is this? Is this the beginning of region locking for PC games?
I'll skip the politics for now because that is an entirely new and complete thread of it's own.
If you have the same issue, the reasonably simple solution is the following:

  • Install The Sims 3.
  • Install the latest available The Sims 3 patch.
  • Change the SKU entry in the The Sims 3 registry hive from 2 to 1. (See picture below.)
  • Install The Sims 3: World Adventures expansion pack.
  • Install the latest available The Sims 3: World Adventures patch.
  • Play the game.
  • Tell EA to fuck itself. (Optional.)
