sims 3 unable to start game service initialization failed...HELP!

Post by kyoh92 on Mon 18 Jun 2012, 18:44

I tried to install the Katy Perry, Fast Lane and Town Life expansions and got through the installations ok, but when I tried to play the actual game, it kept saying "unable to start game...service initialization failed" etc. I previously installed the base game, generations, pets and late night successfully. It was only after I installed the other expansions that it stopped working. I have tried to apply the ultimate fix in the base game's folder and it still does not work correctly. I tried to uninstall all three of the added expansions but it still does not work even after re-applying the fix afterwards! Help!

*i also had installed the master suite expansion successfully prior to KP, FL and TL expansions

Hello,

Also, which numeric code are you getting with that error message? Each problem has it's own error code and it's own solution.
