having trouble starting Sims (error code 0x0175dcbb). [SOLVED]

Post by Meizter on Sun 15 Sep 2013, 01:38

hello all,,

im having a problem that i cannot fix, i'f downloaded The following sims 3 games:

World Adventures

Ambitions

Late night

Generations

Pets (fix)

Showtime

Supernatural

Seasons

University life

Island paradise

Fast lane stuff


town life stuff

Master suite stuff

Katy parry's sweet treats

Diesel stuff

70's 80's and 90's stuff



All from TBP mirror and all from Games4theworld.  after installed one i put the crack in the good folder every Game..
when i was Finished with installing i use the Ultimate fix 

So i downloaded manually the 1.57 patch and installed it.. and after then i put the crack that was in the '' # crack" folder into my Sims 3 game  Bin folder as i should.

And now when i want to open the TS3W.exe i get the following error:

Het spel kan niet gestrart worden
Initialisatie van service mislukt (0x0175dcbb)

i saw that i maybe needed to run CCleaner and i did.. and after that i rebooted.. but it didnt help..

and a sidenote.. this is a clean Windows 7 64 bit version as i have an New SSD in my pc so i had to reinstall everything.



i dont know what i can do about it..
i dont know if i have to get you guys more info, if you need more tell me and ill get it!!

much help appreciated 

Thank you!!

Ok it looks like you used some of the old patching instructions, unfortunately that is an inherent problem with torrents. Your best solution is to completely uninstall the Sims 3 and any EPs/SPs, run CCleaner and reboot. The reinstall using the updated instructions found HERE . Please make sure to follow the instructions exactly and you will be up and Simming in no time.The Sims Plumbob 1

Hello,

Please follow this video:


 

Is The Sims 3 you installed a Blackbox Edition? Did you install any modified versions recently (like R.G. Catalyst The Sims 3 Deluxe Edition)?

No its the collectors edition

that one is legal also World adventures and ambitions all the rest are torrents from games4theworld.

And ill uninstall everything now and run CCleaner and then use the How to install sims 3 properly from the site and will tell what happends next..

Hello,

You don't have to follow all of the fix instructions, if you don't use any of the cracks while you're installing the game and ep/sp's. Install everything, run the patch and copy the crack from the crack folder.
The most crucial thing is to restart your pc after you finish uninstalling everything.

Big Edit: Does that collectors edition include an ep/sp? Because that's going to be problematic with the crack.

Hello,

There is a possibility that using CCleaner may erase registry entries other than The Sims 3. If you are still not assuring yourself that you have cleared all of the registry entries regarding The Sims 3, please check out this guide.

Hello,

Is your pc 32-bit? If yes, you should look into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE >> Software >> Sims (and Electronic Arts) instead.

Hello,

Then I think you have cleaned the registry already. You should go ahead and reinstall The Sims 3.

Im installing All the Sims packs now.. but i cant install the Island paradise as it has to merge with the sims i have installed but when i do OK i get error:

Er is een fout opgetreden tijdens het bijwerken van De Sims 3. De installatie kan niet hervat worden.
