Problem, got this "unable to start game, Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb). [SOLVED]

Post by Etuhhh on Tue 18 Jun 2013, 19:56

I'm sorry i know this kind of topics are already here but i didn't get answer to my problem. I have installed already Ambitions, Diesel Stuff, Generations, Late Night, Pets, Seasons, Showtime, Town Life Stuff and World Adventures. Today i tried to add a University Life to my game collection, but instead i got this error. I also tried  to use this ultimate fix, but i think i did something wrong or it just didn't work. Before today's problem i didn't have ultimate fix at all, so i read the instructions and acted like there was said. After putting files from crack into Sims 3 Game Bin i got this box (task?) where said that the game owner is unknown ors. i hit the run but nothing happened. I also tried this "regedit" video, but there wasn't anything i could delete. Then i checked the game updates , it was 1.50.056 and i did it again, don't know why but now i am back to the beginning and got this 0x0175dcbb error. Please help, i don't know what to do.

I was going to uninstall all my games and then install them again but without university life but thought you guys could help me Smile
Please Smile

Are you sure about the regedit thing? This is what the error shows...
Check that in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Sims there aren't any folders concerning games you don't have anymore.

Sorry, then, there is no other way.
First, backup your saves and all if you have any: drag the folder \Documents\electronic Arts\The Sims 3 to your desktop.
Uninstall all your games.
Restart your pc.
Re install everything one by one, and check for updates after each one. If any are available, update your game.
Once everything is installed, check your game is version 1.50, otherwise use the Manual Patch.
Then, copy the files from the Crack folder of the Ultimate Fix (only those are required) to their respective location.
Then, try to start the game. If all goes well, you can put back your saved folder from your desktop!
Tell us how it went!

Before that, try to uninstall University only, restart, and check the regedit that the folder is gone. Then re install it following the instructions.
Otherwise, follow my instructions, and even with University Life it should be fine Wink

Hello,

Yes, there is no other way I'm afraid. This process will take some time and effort, but: you will not lose your old savegames, mods and custom content (remember the folder "The Sims 3" that you backed up ? This contains your old files) Wink.

If your game works fine:
¤ Take the files from the "University Life & ..." folder of the Ultimate Fix, then copy them over to the right location.
¤ Re-apply the Manual Patch
¤ Install University Life
Copy the files from the Crack folder to the right location.
You should be good to play!
