Unable to start game - service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb) (ultimate fix applied, etc) [SOLVED]

Post by ForeverSarah on Wed 13 Feb 2013, 19:17

I have searched this error and seen other fixes for the issue but I tried those solutions and they have not worked for me.
I currently have installed:
Sims 3 (base)
HELS
Ambitions
Late Night
Pets
MSS
Katy Perry
Supernatural
Seasons

Game was working 3 days ago, I installed Late Night yesterday and re-applied the ultimate fix and now it will not start. I have tried the launcher (up to date) but when I click play it closes the launcher and doesn't open the game or give me an error, just goes away. When I bypass the launcher and just use the exe (both ts3.exe and ts3w.exe) I get an error saying "unable to start game. Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)

I'm running Windows 7 on a very powerful ASUS gaming laptop.
Not sure what other info you guys might need...

Hello,

Do you happen to get an "Error during Startup" error when you try to start the game via the Launcher?
If yes, please read this: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t6052-error-during-startup-see-log-for-more-details-fix

I do not get that error, the launcher gives no indication that anything has gone wrong when I push play but the game does not come up after the launcher disappears.

OK. due diligence, re-downloading and applying those steps. Back in a bit.

//EDIT

Nope, still getting that error.
Edit: After re-doing the manual
patch, my launcher found an update I didn't have (store stuff I think?)
and I applied that, now my game works. Thank you!
