Seeking Help, Error When Starting Up

Post by iEnjoi on Wed 15 Jan 2014, 04:43

Hey guys, first off I am new to the forum and games4theworld, so hello and I apologize in advance if I've missed anything as far as posts go. I've done the best to my ability to go through everything thoroughly and now seek guidance.

I downloaded The Sims 3 and all expansions minus the Katy Perry stuff and followed the sticky thoroughly on how to install the game and the expansions. Two things happen.

1. When I open TS3.exe I get this error: Unable to start game, Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb)

2. When I open the launcher (I think I read don't open it that way but thought I'd try anyways) I get: Error, There was an error during startup, please see the Log for more info. I hit OK and it closes out. On the bright side, all the expansion icons are at the bottom of the launcher.

As I said before, I followed the sticky to the T using the ULTIMATE FIX in conjunction with the the patch update for 1.63.5. Should I start from scratch installing all the base games again or? Thanks in advance!

Have you tried opening TS3W.exe?
Have you copied and pasted the files from #crack into the base game folder?

Yeah, I've done both of those. Opening the TS3W.exe gets the same error.
