Here's instructions how to recover the missing serial code from the registry: http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-3/FAQ-Lost-and-b
What's your operating system (32 or 64 bit) and did you get the download or disk version ?

Operating system: windows 7 64bit
I got the serial and after uninstalling and reinstalling several times via origin i am able to use Sims3 with no expansions, i tried to install the expansions but it wants me to use the launcher to update before it will allow me. The launcher gives me a "not a valid win32 application" error
when i try to launch through origin, i get nothing...looks like it will launch but never does.

so the sims3launcher.exe file in my C:\Program Files (x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin folder was named "sims3launcher.ex_" i changed the _ to an E and that did the trick, the game is now updating.
I have had nothing but issues with this game so far, which makes me sad because my wife loves this game. Thanks for your assistance crinrict
