Sims 3: Unable to start game: Service Initialization Failed (0x02957b48)

Post by Avantika on Sat 02 Jul 2011, 05:10

I had this error (0x02957b48) earlier this morning and managed to get past it without uninstalling anything, i simply wasn't sure what went wrong as it was sudden, game was working perfectly the day before.. I do have a lot of CC's and i play the original versions, wasn't sure if i would had to remove everything and re-install so i moved the files to my desktop.. For whatever reason i just though of trying to run the game without them files in the correct directories and it went just fine, force shut the task and put the files where they originally belonged to and my game is working fine again.. weird tho as i have never give it a try before, but worked for me just fine, glad i don't have to install the game and all them expansions all over again Smile

Not sure i am posting it in the right place tho.. not new to The Sims 3, just new to this community. So i hope i didn't bother or annoy anyone Razz

Nice job with the website Smile keep up the good work!
Y'all have a nice day Smile

** Edit

Right, as i expected.. this post when to the wrong place, haha..
Sorry about that, didn't figure the website out that well yet! Embarassed

Yes, that's correct. If you copy the crack to the wrong folder, you'll keep getting the "(0x02957b48)" error. Though I'm glad you got it to work.
Please let us know if you have any more problems in the future and have fun on the Forum!
