better still of you can find your code for the lost sims3 base game instructions are in the link I linked you can download the digital version of your lost one from your origin account if the games where registered , if you can't find the code then contact CS to see if they can assist with that (before considering going out and re buying the game that would be the last thing I would do after exploring the other avenues open to me i.e. trying to find the code myself then if I can't i'd then try CS after that if I cant get help with lost code I'd think about re buying )
before downloading your digital version you'll need to uninstall the disk version of that one game that is lost if you need a guide on which files to manually remove after uninstalling via the control panel let us know so we can post one for you
and here's an example of the games work
examples of how the games work the way the game's work you have the sims 3 base game then buy seasons you will play from the seasons expansion the base game will combine for playing then say you buy university the game will play from university (again the others combine for playing ) as that as it is your newest installed released game then say you buy an older released game like generations you will still play from the uni one as it is the newest released installed game you own and installed

I don't work or have any association with EA. I give advice to the best of my knowledge and cannot be held responsible for any damage done to your computer/game.
Please only contact me via PM when asked to do so.
So I followed the instructions on where to find the product keys in the registry and added some I hadn't previously registered to my Origin account recently. However, two of the keys I found in registry are being kicked back by Origin and not being added to my account.
Is there a way to rectify this? I'm trying to install Sims 3 to a fresh built PC and not having to dig around in my closet to find the disk case would be helpful.
I am resetting my computer soon, but would like to reinstall Sims 3 and my expansion packs whenever I am done. Will I be able to use my serial codes from Origin to use again? Or will I have to re-purchase the games?
if your games are regestired and if you download or have origin downloaded to your computer log in there from the shortcut icon with the email and password you used for the account the digital version of the games should be in your my games tab to download and install
