game-service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)

Post by forsakencolors on Mon 08 Jul 2013, 03:57

I've read everything I can find in these threads and every other thread on google, most solutions seems to be individual after looking at the registry. I'm really hoping someone can help me out this is the third time I've done a re-install and I would like to avoid doing it again (the last time I didn't have this issue but in my haste I forgot seasons and had to do it again in order, now I'm looking at this problem). 
I used CCcleaner after every uninstall, but the launcher gets an error and when I try to launch from the crack file (which I tried replacing several times after I encountered this error) just gives me the failed window. I didn't launch the game I just kind motored threw so there is nothing in my documents to even clear out (no caches to delete so that's won't help). 

Here is my registry info I really hope someone can help, because I'm about to take a hammer to my new computer over this. Thanks in advance for even reading my babble. If I have to re-install I guess i will but any tips on avoiding this on another go would also help.

Hello there,

Did you use the crack files from the "Ultimate fix" - or another crack ? For the future, you should only use the Ultimate fix. But most likely this is not the problem here.

Unless you're an expert (or you have clear instructions) you should NOT mess around with the registry. Therefore I suggest you do a clean-un-install of all your Sims 3 games. You can either do that manually, and have a look at this here: http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_Uninstall.

Or you can use a good un-install program, like "REVO un-installer" (maybe this can be found on Piratebay).

Good luck !
