Unable to start game. Service initialization failed. [SOLVED]

Post by CinnamonGirl on Thu 18 Sep 2014, 21:02

Hi, can someone please help me with this problem?
I updated my game and reapplied the fix, now this message keeps popping up and I can't figure out why. I think I already had the same patch and fix installed a few months ago, I just wanted to repeat the process because I added new store content.




Previously my game worked just fine except a few bugs...

Hi there! Smile

If I may ask, why is the TS3W.exe you are trying to run located at the Desktop? It should be inside the The Sims 3\Game\Bin folder.
