    Really? My installation code was on the Red paper.

    I think EA goofed, because the red paper tells me to enter the code to get the pet store, but that's the code that's used to actually install the game. The one on the white paper (That has codes for Sims 3 and the Pets expansion) was invalid for me.

    It's goofy and stupid.

    And EA probably won't post anything about it.

    Thank you, I was about to get really ticked off. But yep, the actual code for the sims pets was on my red paper. Hoping now the other code works for the limited edition content. Sometimes this is why forums are so great. Crossing my fingers that nothing else is messed up.

    Is there a difference between the pets Plus and The Limited Edition? I had pre-ordered the Limited one.

    Also - with the code "screw-up", do we have to re-register the base game to register pets? (that part of the news had me confused) Obviously, I'll be registering my Generations game as soon as I get it, and have it installed.

    So the code on the red paper is the actual code? cuz on that paper, it says limited edition code? and i think i tried that code first on accident and it didnt work. None of my codes worked!

    For me, none of those codes worked. Not the one on the red paper (the limited edition code) or the two on the white paper!! (sims 3 and sims 3 pets)

    :(

    EDIT: The code on the red paper is your installation code. The code on the white paper that says it's for pets is actually your limited content redemption code.


    Thank you for posting this fixed my problem :D

    my issue is not the code, but the special content, i.e. the pet swap shop. I got the code all set up, went to my purchase history, downloaded the store and such, and installed it into the actual game, and now it is not showing up anywhere, but it still says it is installed. Is anybody else having this issue?

    I installed my pets with the code on the white paper and registered it with the same code but I'm confused what to do with the Limited Edition Redemption Key on the red paper. Where am I supposed tp type it in???

    You may not need the code on the red paper. If your Pets EP is already installed, then be sure to register it here on the Sims 3, and then check your purchase history. The limited edition pet store should show up there.
