Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb). Help!

Post by LeviWheeler on Sun 23 Oct 2011, 09:43

I installed all of the expansions, and even applied the "Ultimate Fix" from this site.

I haven't been able to play the Sims 3 at all since I installed Pets on the 18th.
After I finished updating, I clicked on my "Sims 3" shortcut to launch the game, and the only thing that comes up is a window that says:
Unable to start game.
Service initialization failed (0x0175dcbb).
Anybody have a possible fix for this?

Hello,
You could try starting the game without the launcher.

I originally had this exact problem, but after researching around here, I've found out the cause.

You have to put the crack files in the sims 3 BASE folder, NOT the Sims 3 Pets or Generations folder. So try putting the crack files in your "C > Program Files (x86) > Electronic Arts > The Sims 3 > game > bin" folder instead and see if it works for you then.

It wouldn't let me post the file location for some reason... so all / were replaced with > instead.

Hello,

Read the link I just sent you.
When you've downloaded the Fix and open it, you'll see a file called "# Installation Guide.pdf". Just follow the instructions inside it.
