I bought the Sims 3 ambitions expansion pack and I installed it fine but when I go and try to open it up to play it opens origin and tell me I need to activate it with the product code I put in the product code and it tell me that its already been used I contacted origin support and spoke to 4 different advisors and they gave me 4 different product codes and it still says the same thing? And now also none of my other sims games will open and it says the same thing as when i try to open the ambitions Anyone else had this problem and know how to sort it out? Thanks please help
It is possible that you have to do a manual uninstall of either the Ambitions expansion or the Sims base game. Read more about that here:
