The Sims(TM) 3

Retail expansions don't work with Sims 3 Steam?
Today I bought two expansions to Sims 3 (Late Night and High-End Loft) from JB Hi-Fi and tried to install them. No luck, I get this message:

"This product requires an installed copy of The Sims 3. Please install The Sims 3 before installing this product."

This is one heck of a bummer. Any way to fix or get around this? Do I need to move my Sims 3 files around to install the content and then shift it back to my Steam dir or what?

Help please :3

They do not work together, but you can register them on Origin. As been stated in hundreds of threads asking the same thing...
Thanks for the quick reply! I'll go register it now.

It's been answered a ton. The sims is NOT a steamworks game, it does not activate on steam.
It worked! You're the best, Slov!
