TS3 - Seasons : Unable to start game. Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)

Post by baburudesu on Sat 02 Mar 2013, 08:30

I was playing Sims 3 yesterday, and it was going quite well. Today, I downloaded TS3 Seasons, and now I can't seem to play it. When I go to the launcher it tells me to check the log, and that an error occurred. Knowing about things like this, I went into the drive that I had installed it on (drive D, as C is quite small), and attempted to boot straight from TS3.exe. Then it gave me this: "Unable to start game. Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)". This had happened before with my Supernatural installation. I had previously installed Late Night, Ambitions and Pets, though they were deleted as I had gained malware, and I re-installed Windows. I have been using Windows XP, and it's stats are
Spoiler:

Windows XP
Home Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 3

Pentium Dual-Core CPU
E5400 @2.70GHz
2.69 GHz, 2.00 GB of RAM



The Sims3 registry file says

If it makes a difference, I am using Razor's TS3 iso, not yours.

Thank you for your kind assistance.

Oh come on. Have you checked the instructions on this website?
http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly
This is very important because when i first downloaded the Sims 3 and eps I experienced the same issue too and i followed the instructions and it worked!

Thank you for your kind assistance.
And please download the eps here. They are virus-free and you can enjoy them without any re-installation!

//EDIT

By the way, I wonder if this is your typing mistake or what. If you want
to play TS3 with the expansion packs you must start TS3W.exe rather
than TS3.exe. TS3.exe is for playing the original game WITHOUT any
expansion packs!

Since you say this:
