SIMS 3 REGISTRATION CODE, WHERE CAN I FIND IT IF I HAVE DOWNLOADED THE PROGRAM? help!!!!

[ Edited ]
★★★ Newbie

spent about 3 hours downloading the sims 3 for my mac, it then says 'please enter the entire registration code found either in your confirmation email, your game manual/packaging, or game card.'

I downloaded the game so have no packaging etc, yet my confirmation email does not have a registration code, where is it and what do i do?!

I checked there. For all the expansion and stuff packs I"ve previously purchased, there is a serial code. But for Late Night, the one I'm trying to download, there isn't. The only difference between this one and the last one is a updated version of the base game and of Origin. 

 

Now what? I'm trying to get in contact with an actual person, but no luck so far.

@2039201  open Origin - Origin has been the drm since 2012 so if you haven't switched over by now your behind. Click my game library - right click the game icon - click game properties - read code. If you downloaded (or do you mean installed) and you didn't purchase a code - you need to purchase the code and actic\vate the game.If you bought the game through Origin - the code is in your Origin purchase history. If you bought the disc version the code was on a piece of paper. If you bought just the code you need to contact the place of purchase. If you didn't buy a code - they are not free - you must buy the code to activate the game.
