Sims 3 Launcher Error occurred on startup. [SOLVED]

Post by xProlithium on Mon 26 Aug 2013, 03:59

Hello,

I have recently attempted to install The Sims 3 and (almost) all of the expansions. Everything worked great up until I added the TS3W.exe and TSLHost.dll from the #Crack folder into the "The Sims 3/Game/Bin" folder.

I have looked through the forums to see if this has happened to anyone else and (I myself) could not find anything. I re-read the instructions pertaining to the entire installation and all with no luck.

Any help would be appreciated.

The message stated when the Launcher opens is "There was an error during startup. Please see the Log for more details"

I have no clue where this log file is or if it will even generate the correct information needed to fix it.

When I try to bypass the launcher and run straight from the TS3W.exe, an error comes up stating "Unable to start game  Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)"

Hello,

This is mostly registry-related. Have you uninstalled an expansion/expansions before? If yes, please watch the following video and follow the instructions:
