The Sims 3 Not Launching after Origin Update. [SOLVED]

Post by himei_kyomei on Tue 04 Jun 2013, 05:24

Earlier today, I installed Master Suite Stuff, High End Loft Stuff, Diesel Stuff, and Showtime. I downloaded the ultimate fix, and went to play the game. I downloaded the newest Origin update when I was prompted to, logged back in to Origin, and was then prompted to register my Sims 3 game, even though I already had. I typed in my base game code, and I got a message saying the code was already in use. So I tried launching the game from the application in My Documents, and I got this error:

Unable to start game 

Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)

I ended up going to Origin customer service, and the guy wasn't of much help (as I had anticipated o-O).. He did give me a new code for the game, but I couldn't register it, and then he randomly left the chat. .-.
I even tried making a new Origin account, but of course, it wouldn't accept any password that I entered.
I'm assuming that this is an error on Origin's part, but typing the error message I got into google didn't provide me with any relevant results, and I've tried everything I can think of other than uninstalling the game.

What I need to know is how to fix this mess.. is there a way to just make it so that the error from the application goes away or.. something? ;_;
I'm really just at a complete loss of what to do here. I'd really appreciate it if you guys would help me out.

Thank you in advance. :3

Usually, it means you did a bad uninstall...
So keep your keys, uninstall everything you have, RESTART THE PC, re install one by one... Best guess so far!
Good luck!

Alright.. I'll do that after school today and tell you how it goes.

//EDIT

Well, it looks like I didn't have to resort to uninstalling the whole
game after all. I talked to another advisor, just because I lost the new
game code I got yesterday, and he was actually helpful (I'm still
having difficulties processing the idea that not every one of them are
blundering fools Shocked)
and he registered the Sims 3 game on Origin for me with a new code, so I
can just start the game using the launcher like normal. .-.
It seems like everything I post on this site has a pathetically easy solution.. ehh. scratch I apologize for being such a noob. ;_;
Thank you anyway, Shamrock.

Ok, don't worry, what's important is that you got your game working!!
Shall I keep the topic open for further questions?
