Cannot start Sims 3 (0x0175dcbb)

Post by Rose235 on Tue 25 Jun 2013, 17:29

Hi,

For two days now, I've tried to get the Sims to work, but I still get errors. I've installed all of the expansion packs (except for World Adventures and Island Paradise). 
I updated the game (manually) to the latest version and applied the fix I found here and copied the cracks. However, when I try to open the launcher, I get an error, with the code '0x0175dcbb'. I did the regedit, but there were no problems. I even removed all of the games and re-installed them, but the problem remains the same...

What can I do to fix this?

Hello,

If you used the manual patch for updating the game, then it's enough if you use the two files from the #crack folder in the fix. These two files (TS3W.exe + TSLHost.dll) go into the base game location C:\Program files(x86)\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin (= the base game location).

Otherwise, the only real option left is a clean un-install; for a start, follow these guidelines here: http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_Uninstall

And please, try deleting the right registry keys manually, and not with the CCleaner or similar tools.

Good luck !
