The Sims 3 won't run

Post by WickedGames on Sat 01 Apr 2017, 18:02

Whenever I try to run it, it tells me this: 

"Unable to start the game
Service initialization failed (0x0175d824)"

I re/installed the Ultimate Fix and it shows me the same answer.

My current version of the game is 1.67. Besides the basic version, I have few other packs. 

Should I deinstall everything and install it all over again, or is there a way for me to fix it? Thanks. Smile

Have you tried cleaning out the cache files?

No problem, I am glad I could help. Very Happy I had a similar problem a bit back and that seemed to fix it. Sometimes the game files get twitchy and just need to refresh those cache files.
