Service Initialization Error[SOLVED]

Post by ezhang30 on Sun 23 Feb 2014, 19:18

So, I have downloaded every single Expansion Pack except World Adventures (legally, through Origin), and I do not yet have any Stuff Packs on my game.
I play on a Mac, and I was planning on installing every single Stuff Pack from here since I don't want to spend more money.
My game is already patched to the latest update, so do I still need to do Steps 2&3 on this page http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t1171-must-read-how-to-install-the-sims-3-correctly?
If anyone could help, that would be great! I would prefer an admin, but anyone works!

Service Initialization Error

Post by ezhang30 on Sun 23 Feb 2014, 22:50

I have bought every single EP & Base Game excluding World Adventures legally, through my Origin account. I play on Mac.
Now, every time I try to open up the game a message pops up saying there was a Service Initialization error (0x065d0274).
I have gotten this before, due to corrupt CC, but this doesnt seem to be the case here, as I haven't downloaded CC recently.
I have however recently tried to install all stuff packs, excluding Town Life, High End Loft, and Outdoor Living.
I read the download instructions carefully, and I skipped Step 2, as my game is already up to date. I applied Step 3 as well.
I also noticed that when I go to the launcher, and go to my Installed Content & Screenshots, none of them show up with a PDF image, and instead they're all brown boxes.
Could anyone help?

Hello,

You should be looking at the Mac Installation Guide instead of PC:

Hopefully that helps Smile

I have followed every single step through, and even applied the crack. This problem only seems to occur when I try to download Stuff Packs, as when I downloaded World Adventures, it worked perfectly. I only got the Service Initialization Error once I installed Stuff Packs

Could you put this problem as solved? It turns out that all I didn't apply the Crack in Step #13! Thanks!


Helper edit: Of course! Please feel free to inform us if you have more problem. Topic is closed.
