Unable to start game - Service initialization failed (0x0175cbb). [SOLVED]

Post by loh on Fri 25 Apr 2014, 10:13

Hi all,
I have recently installed the Sims 3 expansion pack, the World Adventures. After completing installation of the World Adventures, upon trying to launch the game, I received this popup:

Unable to start game
Service initialization failed (0x0175cbb)

What was the cause of this error? I have surfed the internet to find the problem, but the solutions raised could not apply to my game.

Actions I did:
Install The Sims 3 base game, then updating the patch to 1.26.89, then installing the World Adventures
Checked my Registry, under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, Sims folder, there were only the Sims 3 Base Game and World Adventures, no other expansion packs. 

I have not played in either of the games yet, but I could open the Sims 3 Base Game.

Anybody out there help me? I would be extremely thankful for whoever that can help me solve this issue.

Thanks all!

I'll see to your other issue, when I have more time this week. Wink  For now, I'll close this topic - for the "stray" problem stick to your other topic on here.

The topic is closed.
