Error 0x0175dcbb "Service initialization failed". [SOLVED]

Post by mech on Mon 26 Aug 2013, 21:29

Okay, i'm sorry to make another thread about this but i cannot make the game work and it's driving me crazy. I downloaded the torrents all from g4tw to make sure they're compatible: Base Game, Late Night, Town Life Stuff and Seasons. What i did exactly was this :

-Installed Base Game. Didn't crack it.
-Installed Late Night. Didn't crack it.
-Installed Town Life Stuff. Didn't crack it.
-Updated with the manual patch linked in the "must read" (since the launcher detected that i have an unauthorized copy) to install Seasons
-Installed Seasons. Didn't crack it. 
-Updated again with the patch.
-Replaced the TS3.exe and the TSLHost.dll files in C:\ProgramFiles\ElectronicArts\TheSims3\Game\Bin with the ones from the "Base Game" folder from the Ultimate Fix ( step 3 )
-Replaced the TS3EP03.exe and the TSLHost.dll files in C:\ProgramFiles\ElectronicArts\The Sims3Late Night\Game\Bin with the ones from the "Late Night" folder ( step 8 )
-Replaced the TS3W.exe and the TSLHost.dll files in C:\ProgramFiles\ElectronicArts\TheSims3\Game\Bin with the ones from the "All expansion packs released after and including Generations" also in the Ultimate Fix (step 10 )
-Updated ( as says step 11 )
-Made sure any process or application was running 
-Replaced the .exe and .dll files from the #Crack folder to C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin

And finally when i try to run the game i get the "Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)" sign. 

Some other details:
-I used to have an older version of "The Sims 3 Complete Edition" installed, but i uninstalled it some months ago and previous to install this version i made sure to remove the residual files. So technically the registry should be clean.
-The base game only works when i replace the TS3.exe in C:\ProgramFiles\ElectronicArts\TheSims3\Game\Bin file with the one that comes in the Crack folder in the same torrent. Once i update it with the patch it no longer works, allways with the same error message. 

Help or any suggestions will be appreciated!!

Hello,

I am not sure if the registry cleaner you mentioned clears all leftover registry entries. And can you please tell us what is the source of download of The Sims 3 Complete Collection? I suspect this edition is altered by uploader(s) and may have been messing up your registry. Before doing that, attempt steps 2-4 again of this again. Make sure you have done the steps correctly. If this doesn't work, watch this video and follow the guide (since you may have uninstalled an expansion/expansions before):

If this doesn't work neither, you may try to attempt a clean reinstallation by following this.
