Sims 3: Late Night won't run after installing Generations?!?!?!

Post by JazzyCupcakes on Tue 12 Jul 2011, 04:47

So, I installed Sims 3, then installed Late Night, Generations, and then the sims 3 ultimate fix.
I followed the directions TO THE LETTER, and now Late Night won't load, so I'm assuming it's because the game runs the most recent expansion installed, which would be Generations.
So, I go into the Late Night Directory and try to run TS3EPO3.exe and it comes up with an error that says:

Unable to start game. Service initalization failed! (0x039e8474)

So, what's up with it????

You only applied the generations crack right? Did you use the fix and make sure all your games are up to date? Those are my main questions first of all.

What do you mean about the generations crack???
I have applied the fix, and they are all up to date.

Well if you applied the generations crack to the base games bin directory then the game should work for you if everything is up to date and you have generations installed. Try taking a look at my guide here on the site or by downloading it from the link in my signature. It explains the installation process in detail as well as an easier route to install the game.

So do I apply the cracks that come with the base game, and generations and late night or JUST the crack in the fix????

The crack in the fix is the same as the crack in generations. That is the only crack that should be applied regardless if you use the one provided in the fix or the one provided with the expansion.

The only crack you need to use is the one that comes with Generations. That crack should go into C:\Program Files\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Game\Bin. Notice that it doesn't go into the generations game\bin\ folder.

Hello,

Please send a screenshot of the folder where you copied the crack to, if you still get the error.

Alright, thanks.
I'll let you know how it goes when I do it.

I can't get my Print Screen to work at the moment, but the file is

C:/Program Files(x86)/Electronic Arts/ The Sims 3/Game/Bin

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling EVERYTHING and it still isn't working
