I just recieved the windows 8 computer for christmas. I decided to put my sims games on my windows 8 laptop. I downloaded sims 3 base game first. made sure it worked and it did. so i downloaded the rest of the stuff packs and expansion packs onto my laptop. Now with all of them on my laptop this message pops up every time i want to play or download something onto my sims 3. It said "The license limit for this product has been reached." I don't know why it happens. Please help! What should I do to play sims 3 on my laptop.

The best way to go is to un-authorize the game on your old computer. This is how you do it:
You should get a message alerting you De-authorization was successful once the Launcher is finished de-authorizing your machine. Keep in mind De-authorization does not uninstall the game. If you decide you want to re-authorize your computer later, all you have to do is re-launch the game.
Note: De-authorization applies only to digitally downloaded copies of The Sims 3. The retail disk version of The Sims 3 requires the disk in the drive to launch and play the game, and does not use DRM with machine limitations.
Hope that helps!
