Windows 8 compatibility issue "The Sims 3 Pets Expansion Pack"?

I have just installed all The Sims 3 up to The Sims 3 Pets Expansion Pack
I get the following error message

Your The Sims 3 Base Game is incompatible with the current Sims 3 expansion pack. Please update your game via the game launcher.

I have just installed Windows 8 Professional x64 Bit.

Can anyone help me PLEASE!!! I really want to play The Sims 3 but I need to download a patch to fix this! I can't find one anywhere!!!! Or Is The Sims 3 not meant to work on Windows 8 Professional?
