I have installed Sims 3 on my computer and added the Generations expansion. I just got a new expansion pack and a new computer. My current computer is going to be thrown away, so I just wanted to make sure that there is no chance I wil loose my game. Ive had issues with this before with Sims 2 and Im worried I will have the same problems . I had problems with the security code being already taken/invalid because I installed it on another computer. Is there another way to transfer the game that I am missing? or will it automatically allow me to install it on the new computer along with the Generations expansion pack?

Please register your games on the Sims website as explained here:
After that you can always download and install your games from your Origin client. You can download the Origin client from here:
Hope that helps!

I registered Sims 3 and all of my expansions in to Origin. I recently got a new laptop, downloaded Origin and started by downloading the original Sims 3. After it downloaded, it prepared to install but paused asking for a registration key. I unfortunately do not have access to any of my key's at the moment and thought that Origin would alleviate any problems like this. Thank you in advance for your help with this matter.
