I keep getting this error! Service initialization failed 0x0175dcbb.

Post by ninjasattack on Fri 17 May 2013, 14:30

Okay heres what I did...
1. Installed the base game ( I used the Razor one)
2. Updated it using your manual patch. (The base game seemed to be working fine at this point)
3. Installed the Supernatural expansion ( I chose not to install Origin )
4. Copied the crack that came with the expansion into the base game's Bin folder.
5. When I ran the game through the launcher I got the error "error during startup. please see the log for more details" and when I ran it directly using the TS3.exe I got "Unable to start game - Service Initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)"
6. Also tried coping the contents of the #crack folder in your Ultimate Fix into the base game's Bin folder but no luck Sad

Am I doing something wrong?

Helper edit: Topic moved to "The Sims (3) in-game problems".

Crack from the expansion won't work, so this is not surprising.
On the other hand, the crack from the ultimate fix should have... Did you download the last version of the crack?

Hello, I have the exact same problem as the person here. I'm new here so I'm not 100% sure how things are done here but I though I better bump this topic then make a new one (since it will most likely be exactly the same).
I did everything when installing the sims3 and the expansions and used (as far as I know) all the right cracks (from the ultimate fix). However, I still can't play the game.
I've tried everything twice now (installed everything, uninstalled and deleted everything and installed it all again) and keep getting the same errors when trying to start the game.
Help? Sad

You mean what update version? 1.50.56.0210
I used the manual update from here.
I bought the basegame a few years ago right when it got released.

All from G4TW? (except base game?)
Please go to the registry (Windows key at the bottom of the keyboard + R key, then type regedit), and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Sims. Post a screenshot of what is there.

Well here's the culprit! Wink
Delete all folders whose games you uninstalled, that should do it (if it doesn't restart and try again)!

Thanks invalidusername for that Very Happy, I think this is necessary too.

As for that problem, crazycuddle, if you really insist that you correctly applied the "Ultimate fix" (especially the #crack-part), then there is only one explanation left: something went wrong during installation or a previous un-install of the game.

Have a look at this here: http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_Uninstall

Read through that article very carefully! And delete the registry entries manually!

After un-installing, you may re-boot your computer. And then you start over with installing.

Good luck!
