Unable to start game - Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb) error. [SOLVED]

Post by Kylethedarkn on Tue 10 Dec 2013, 22:07

Hello, I recently installed The Sims 3 and all of the expansions and stuff packs for it. For some reason I'm getting an error when starting the launcher that prevents it from opening and tells me to see a log for details. Also if I try running TS3W.exe directly as an administrator I get the error in the topic title. I have already given the forum a search and have tried redoing steps 2-4 from the topic here: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly

I also found a topic linking this error to invalid registry keys (http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t6052-error-during-startup-see-log-for-more-details-fix). The topic says it happens when you have a registry key for a game that's not installed however all of the registry keys were for games I DID install.

So basically at this point I'm unsure how to proceed. It took like a whole day of monitoring to install The Sims 3 and all expansions and stuff packs, so if possible I'd like to try and find a solution before I attempt a re-download and re-install. Thanks in advance for any help. It's very much appreciated.

Thanks for the reply, but unfortunately I have tried all of those fixes to no avail. The registry keys match up with the stuff packs I have installed.

Hello,




This video is for 64-bit systems though; if you are on a 32-bit system, then the registry location is...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Sims.


If you really tried that already, and it still doesn't work, then try a complete "clean" un-install: http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:TS3_Uninstall

Re-boot the computer after un-installing. Then, follow this guide here for re-installing the games: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly


Good luck and let us know if it worked for you !
